Julie and Casey sit down with Lynn Harris (founder of Gold Comedy, cohost of A Bintel Brief, and prolific writer) about how comedy can change the world. Along the way, they discuss why (and HOW) we should get rid of the term “women’s comedy”, and we discover our own personal connection to Lynn’s creation, “Breakup Girl”.

About Lynn Harris: I’m an award-winning journalist-comedian-creative strategist-multihyphenate driven by the power of comedy to change culture. I am founder and CEO of GOLD Comedy, the comedy academy, creative network, and content platform for women/non-binary folks who want to be their funniest selves. I’m also co-host, with Ginna Green, of A Bintel Brief: The Podcast, which brings the Forward’s iconic advice column into the audio age. With supergenius Chris Kalb, I co-created (in 1997!) one of the earliest internet success stories: Breakup Girl, the only superhero who can both bend steel bars and mend broken hearts. I’m an award-winning journalist, author and novelist, communications executive, and comedy producer / performer / instructor. Plus a co-founder of the comedy/event series Persisticon, which raises money to elect women. I am also a former Tonya Harding lookalike, which is a long story.
