Chemda (Voted #8 ep of 2013)

Chemda (Voted #8 ep of 2013)

The podcaster (Keith and the Girl) was born in Israel but raised in NY by a mother of Iraqi heritage and an Iranian father, both of whom had traditional expectations for their daughter, none of which included her being engaged to a female-bodied man.  She also talks about her addictive personality, her not-too subtle attempts at socializing in her younger years and learning to feel empowered by her sexuality in an authentic way.  Keith and the Girl – one of the longest-running comedy podcasts – launched in March of 2005.

Hello nice listener!

I’m so sorry but MIHH episodes one year and older are only available at Stitcher Premium. Go to and use offer code “MENTAL” to get a free month of listening when you signup.

For $4.99/month you get access to ad-free versions of all our shows (older than one year) going back to episodes #1 from March 2011, as well as hundreds of hours of other podcasts’ back catalogs, original shows, exclusive bonus episodes, stand up comedy albums and more.

Please remember to use the offer code “MENTAL” because it gives me credit for bringing a new subscriber to Stitcher Premium and that helps me financially and the podcast needs it. I wish I didn’t have to do this but there it is. Every little bit helps.
