  For anyone who struggles or has struggled with depression, comedian Sarah Silverman’s recent essay for Glamour is an all too familiar account of getting through life with the illness. Silverman gave us a peek into her experience with depression, from her first experiences to how she handles it now.  The essay was written in anticipation of her upcoming film, I Smile Back, in which she plays the role of depressed housewife Laney Brooks, who “has it all” but self-medicates with pills and booze. Silverman’s own initial experience...

So for now, let’s all just...

I would recommend starting off with their latest album For...
The Lady to Lady podcast is not for the tenderhearted. And with Margaret Cho joining hilarious hosts Barbara Gray, Brandie Posey, and Tess Barker for this week's podcast, no time was wasted in cutting to the goods. Topics range from The Pope to Louis CK's balls. "Can you keep a secret?" the hosts chime at the show's opening. "Neither can we!"  These women are hilarious. They're the type of women that I just want to hang out with. I feel like, so comfortable with them and I...
