Comedy is Back, Finally: A Conversation with Nell Scovell

My guest this week is the brilliant and incredibly accomplished writer, Nell Scovell, who has written for Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton and Lisa Simpson. Not to mention, she co-authored Lean In with Sheryl Sandberg, got David Letterman to apologize and was one of the first women to write for The Simpsons. We baked my dad’s favorite biscotti and discussed how humor can make a comeback in the Biden administration (in a good way), the history of cancel culture and what the ancient Pompeiians found funny.
