Issa Rae

Loving this interview with Issa Rae on the podcast Sooo Many White Guys! She’s insightful and fantastically down to earth, with a lot of honest thoughts about feminism and relationships, stemming from her show Insecure. She also speaks to growing up as an “awkward black girl,” between different cultural worlds, never quite fitting in, and how that influenced her career in television production. Listen to the conversation below (mp3 from and watch the trailer for her show.

Apparently Barack Obama complimented her on Insecure, and said he loves the soundtrack, but can’t repeat it. HA!
