Nora McInerny, Author and Host of Terrible, Thanks for Asking Podcast


Are you one of the gazillions of podcast listeners already tuning into Terrible, Thanks For Asking? No, it’s not a beauty podcast, it’s a sad but also very funny show hosted by Nora McInerny, an author and widow who tackles the human predicament about our struggles to grapple with, and talk to others about, loss and pain—awkwardness be damned. She’s a contributing life & love writer to Elle.com and she’s even done a TedxMinneapolis talk, but what you may not know is that Nora McInerny is also a skincare-savvy former beauty publicist who we befriended on a press trip like, ten years ago.

And we were due for a good catch up, you know? Listen in to our somewhat gap-y Skype call (sorry, kids! #wifiproblems) and find out how TTFA was born out of McInerny’s first-husband’s death. Plus, the super mom’s anti-self-care rituals for how to survive shitty life deals; the scoop on her upcoming second book; how to wake up looking legit like a princess; and all the Costco beauty buys worth driving out to the ‘burbs for.
