Not Funny

Richard is joined by US stand up and writer Jena Friedman to chat about her essay collection about comedy, abortion, Me Too and more, Not Funny. Charmingly Jena's nervous dog is in the room and then her baby son turns up and somehow Richard plays some music over the podcast, but there's still time for some great chat about dead baby jokes, the kind of questions only female comedians get asked and the complex relationships in stand up, where there is no HR department.
