Episode 151: Something I Needed to Do For Myself featuring Taki Soma

Taki Soma has a sit-down chat with us about her graphic memoir “Sleeping While Standing.” This deeply personal episode covers everything from the purpose of memoir, the lives of our parents that we know nothing about, the universality of grief, and the heartbreaking tragedy of losing a pet. That all sounds pretty heavy, but this is a pretty cathartic and, yes, funny episode with one of the best people doing it today in the world of comics.
