Sketch comedy and owning our mistakes with Hayli Thomson Better Words

    • Books

Hayli Thomson joins us in the final episode of season 8 to discuss her new YA sapphic rom-com, The Comidienne's Guide to Pride. We talk about the need for nuance in literature (and life), why Hayli set the book in Salem and her journey to publication.

Before the interview, Caitlin and Michelle reminisce about this season and FIVE YEARS of Better Words (say whatttt?!). Michelle admits defeat and concludes she is in a proper slump so she's re-reading Adam Kay's This Is Going to Hurt. But she does recommend watching The Spy That Dumped Me (for reasons that will become apparent in the interview). Caitlin is also out of books to recommend, so shares why you should watch the pilot of Abbie Chats. We also share a joint recommendation for Just the Gist's new episode on the Salem Witch Trials (again, it will be obvious when you hear our chat!). You can skip all this and head to the interview at 00:17:00.
