Episode 28: Teresa Strasser (Voted #1 Ep of 2011)


Listen Online:


Adam Carolla’s former sidekick comes guns blazing to the fear-off.  Holy shit she brings it.  This one gets dark.  From her being vanquished by a stepmother at age 3 to seriously considering suicide earlier in the year. Touching and funny.  She is also the author of the critically-acclaimed pregnancy memoir Exploiting My Baby.   Paul made a mistake when he uploaded the first version of this interview.  Though an editing error, a reference to another female guest (with a book), sounded like Paul was talking about Teresa.   Hopefully this version clears that up!   Apologies to T for the mixup.
