Do you know that feeling when you’re taking a picture, and everything feels right – except you don’t know what to do with your hands? Should you point? Make a peace sign? Do…finger pistols? Life is filled with these sorts of anxiety-generating moments.
On Stuck with Damon Young, award-winning author (What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Blacker) Damon Young is joined by some of the best, brightest, and Blackest people he knows to explore the uncomfortable, hideous, and hilarious absurdity of our behavior – and how race, sex, gender, and class converge to make everything messy AF.
Guests include writer Samantha Irby on money, comedian Roy Wood Jr. on religion, author Jason Reynolds on sexuality, journalist Nikole Hannah Jones on education, and many more – all trying to deconstruct, laugh at, and find community in the tension between who we are, who we’re expected to be, and who we want to be.
Stuck with Damon Young is a Spotify Original Podcast from Gimlet and Crooked Media.
