What’s not to love about this episode?! We have the majestic writer, actor, and comedian Mitra Jouhari on to discuss the luminescent classic Earth Girls Are Easy. Mitra chats about her deep love for movies that “don’t take themselves seriously as films.” She discusses working on her new show Three Busy Debras and explains why Sandy Honig’s character has a sister who is over 40 years older than her. Mitra also elaborates on the necessity for surreal and cuckoo comedy to be grounded in an emotional truth. And, of course, she discusses the “Touchdown Jesus” of Ohio getting hit by lightning.
