The Pandemic Broke My Brain with Emily Flake

The Pandemic Broke My Brain with Emily Flake

For the second episode, host Emily Farris interviews New Yorker cartoonist Emily Flake. Emily and Emily consider each other friends from the Internet — but this is their first time interacting in real life (well, as IRL as you can be when you’re halfway across the country from each other). They discuss the challenges of trying to be creative when your brain feels like it won’t work anymore, they bond over their shared fantasy of sneaking away from their families to write for a few weeks, and Emily (Farris) tells the story of her Internet-micro-famous inner-thigh bruise.
