This is your weekly Interview Flashback, where I dig into my archived of 18 years interviewing comedians, musicians, authors, and artists for newspapers and magazines and give you a bit of audio from the conversation. This week, it’s comedian and author Jen Kirkman. Kirkman released her second book, I Know What I’m Doing — and Other Lies I Tell Myself: Dispatches from a Life Under Construction, on April 12. When we spoke in December of 2014, she was working on the final six chapters. Here she talks a bit about the concept of it, a “guide for unconventional ladies,” about her first book, I Can Barely Take Care of Myself, and the end of Chelsea Lately. Enjoy!
