Melanie talks with Alex Dale, her long-suffering graphic designer husband who of his own volition dressed up in a Maimed Cookie Man costume to become the It’s Not Fair mascot at the book launch party. They interview each other, discussing important topics like who is cooler, Batman or Iron Man, which John Cusack movie is the best, how they met when Melanie was a twerpy freshman, and how they learned to laugh through hard stuff. They also perform a dramatic reading of their kids talking about where babies come out of.
Melanie talks with Kendall Ashley, a writer at Nerdist and Geek & Sundry and editor at a publishing house, about bun-stuffing in ballet, her perspective as an editor, San Diego Comic-Con, and all their conflicted feelings about the new Harry Potter book, The Cursed Child. She has so many great recommendations for reading and viewing and Melanie shares about one of the most embarrassing moments of her life.
