 Comedian and author Jen Kirkman does a solo podcast – a mostly improvised, stream of consciousness monologue that weaves random small observations into sometimes bigger stories about her past, her present and just unfiltered thoughts about anything from her life to what’s happening in the world.  Just like life – the podcast is sometimes funny, sometimes poignant and always random. Jen is interested in the small things that make life both unbearably annoying and wonderful.  Having Funlessness means that everyone’s fun is different.  Some people want to go to Coachella and yell “Woo” some people think it’s just as fun to stay home on a Friday night to do laundry.  Jen’s relationship to her listeners who often write in for advice is authentic and where Jen hones her skills as the self-help guru you didn’t know that you needed. 


“What actually makes it funny is Kirkman’s inherent knack for cultivating conflict even talking into a microphone in a room by herself. Kirkman is eternally embattled but she tempers her cynicism with sweetness and, more often than not, she’s right.” - The AV Club
