Julia Young, author of Please Don't Grab My Pussy

“Comedy is important because everything sucks right now and a lot of times the only way to make change or get people involved or interested is through comedy.” – Julia Young


This episode is brought to you in collaboration with Sweet B Design.


Today’s guest is Julia Young, a comedy writer, performer, author, actress, improviser, and social media star. She’s currently a producer on Showtime’s late night show Desus & Mero, a cast member and writer on MTV’s Wild ‘n Out, and her new book Please Don’t Grab My Pussy: A Rhyming Presidential Guide was published in October 2018 by Animal Media Group. This book is a timely and humorous rhyming picture book that is decidedly for adults with a good sense of humor. Through campy pop culture rhymes and beautiful oil paintings, the narrator of our book guides you through a list of things you can grab while offering more poetry ways to refer to a woman’s genitalia than the word “pussy” that Trump so vulgarly used.

Connect with Julia on her TwitterInstagram, or her website juliabyoung.com. You can pick up a copy of her book at your local retailer or on Amazon.

Julia’s book recommendation: The Power by Naomi Alderman

Renee Powers founded Feminist Book Club in 2018 to provide a space for intersectional feminists to learn, grow, and connect. When not reading or running the biz, you can find her drinking coffee and trying unsuccessfully to teach her retired racing greyhound how to fetch. Favorite genres: feminist thrillers, contemporary literary fiction, short stories, and anything that might be described as "irreverent"
