Episode 9: Body Talk - Call Your Girlfriend On the podcast this week, Amina and I discuss baby ambivalence, fake body-positive anthems, the phenomenal Shonda Rhimes, and getting down when you're on your period.
I do mind the gap. - annfriedman.com A short missive on why tallying race, gender, and other sorts of gaps is actually pretty important. Plus, a very sparkly video.
Transparent. The entire first season is available to stream on Amazon today, and you can watch the first episode for free. I've seen the first two episodes because I'm lucky enough to know several fantastic people who worked on this show (shoutout to Hilda & Jill & Ali!). I am admittedly biased, but I loved it. I covet all of Maura's caftans. Cannot wait to binge-watch.
"It's Friday and I know @annfriedman's newsletter is only a few short hours away. So I think it's all gonna be ok." -Jessica Peterson. Maybe I should also include deep-breathing exercises?
"I wish @annfriedman's newsletter came out earlier so I could spend all week reading it instead of just all weekend." -Monica Carmean. Idea: You could save it til Monday and read it all week long. Requires serious self-control, though.
"After weeks of spam filter confusion, I'm finally getting @annfriedman's newsletter again. Fridays suck less." -Stewart Scott-Curran. Ugh, spam filters are the bane of this newsletter. Tell your friends that they're supposed to be receiving it every. single. week.
"Your newsletter + a cup of coffee = a perfect Sunday." -Shannon O'Donnell. I'm so honored to be a part of your chill time.
