No one ever teaches us how to be adults. We learn it in our own way, on our own timelines. We fuck up. We give up. We hurt people. I really want to see you in lower Manhattan when I tape a radio pilot, How to Be A Grown A$$ Woman, at New York Public Radio’s The Greene Space. Come to the event to learn how to be a responsible adult in relationships, both personal and professional. Don’t expect neatly-packaged answers explaining “How To Please Your Man in 15 Ways with a Cucumber!!!” You’re smarter and deserve more than that. This also isn’t an event teaching those “other people” how to act right. It’s for you. For me. For all of us who’ve fumbled through figuring life out. It’s a meaningful conversation with How to Be a Person author Lindy West, Gawker’s Ask a Clean Person Jolie Kerr, TheBillfold co-editor Logan Sachon, and me. We’ll teach you how to clean up your messes, whether physical, financial, or emotional.
I can’t promise the four of us will agree on everything, though I have other guarantees. How about this: a free drink! A complimentary glass of wine or beer comes with your ticket because grown-ass people deserve booze. I can also promise I won’t say words like “shit” or “fuck.” It’s public radio! An experienced mediamaker, I know how to behave audience-appropriately. Heads up; The Greene Space events are popular. Buy your ticket today because it’s likely to sell out:
