Episode 20: Mrs. Money Mustache - Call Your Girlfriend On the podcast, Amina and I discuss the Oscars, the most baffling plot point in 50 Shades, married ladies who change their names, and apps for getting your finances in order.
I'll be reading in New York on March 18 at Le Poisson Rouge, along with a few other rad ladies who write for The Baffler. Get tickets here.
Also, I'm not speaking (Claudia Rankine is!!) but I will be attending LA BinderCon on March 28 & 29.
"Exploding my @pocket with @annfriedman's tinyletter links, drinking black tea & coconut milk in a mason jar (totes normal because Portland)." -CJ Walker. Would drink this beverage.
"Eyelids so heavy I'm about to fall asleep and then the @annfriedman weekly arrived in my inbox I'M WIDE AWAKE IT'S MORNING." -Mina Farzad. Is this a Bright Eyes reference? That man once threw a cup of beer into the audience in Lincoln, Nebraska, and it hit me in the head. I have not listened to him since.
"AKA Friday afternoon, in which I tweet everything from @annfriedman's newsletter." -Kate Bangay. AKA fantastic testimonial.
"It's Friday, Friday gotta read @annfriedman on Friday 🙌" -Rose Thompson. This is perhaps my favorite endorsement of all time. Have you heard the fake Dylan version? His "partyin' partyin' yeah" is the best.
