Your Face Is Crooked is a semiautobiographical podcast that features short (about five minutes or less), true (or mostly true), often humorous vignettes that touch on everything from formative childhood experiences to bizarre neuroses to the insistent, nagging doubts we have about ourselves (sometimes on a daily basis). It's about one person, but in such a way that it's about all people, because we can all see ourselves in each other's struggles when we're honest enough to admit that we have them too.

Like old school cool

Erin’s thoughts and voice are comforting, familiar and friendly. These are the short form essays I loved so much on various NPR shows. On longer shows, my mind wandered during debates and interviews, but when a familiar voice spoke up with an odd thought about life, I listened intensely as a smile took shape upon my face. That’s what this podcast offers. A nod. Maybe a wink. Definitely a smile.

Funny and Profound

Discovered this podcast via Clinch. Love Erin’s voice and the content of her writing. It makes you think, it makes you laugh.
