We’re back, with Whitney Cummings! She starts off with some personal thoughts about love, then discusses her self-perception, being so-called “mainstream”, seeking validation as a comedian and person, dealing with self-deprecation, reflecting on high school insights and growing up in a chaotic home that brought her closer to comedy, which led to college success and growth in her field, finding work in Los Angeles, flourishing as a woman in comedy, gaining the lessons she learned in her 20s, facing criticism in the New York Times, navigating show-running and real life, discovering the comfort of stand-up comedy as well as what exactly women are thinking, and finally…finding a voice and loving it.
