Bad On Paper

Nov 16, 2022

This week on the podcast we’re chatting with Nora McInerny! Nora is the host of the podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking and the author of five books, most recently Bad Vibes Only, a collection of essays that came out in October. With Nora, we take a walk down Tumblr memory lane and talk about how she decided to be so candid in her memoirs (and why she’s done writing them) the difficulty of writing about topics like self-image and grief, cleaning out your notes app, making big life changes, and of course, we ask her for book recommendations.
