Aparna Nancherla

On the season one finale of “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Teo Bugbee and Rachel Handler talk to genius comedian Aparna Nancherla. Aparna's comedy takes many forms — she does stand-up, she's a writer, she has an amazing Twitter, she's written for Late Night with Seth Meyers, she's been on Inside Amy Schumer and Netflix's Love, she has a podcast called Blue Woman Group, a Comedy Central special…. We could go on, but instead we will let her talk about how she wrings absurdist comedy from depression and anxiety, what it's like to occasionally write for dudes, and what's actually funny in the Trump era. Later, she'll answer a Lady Problem from our co-host Hazel Cills and an existential query from a listener.
