Season 1 Episode 16: Josie Long And RomComs Starring Christian Bale

This week's guest is stand-up comedian, writer and actor, Josie Long. One of the funniest, more special people I know. Always there with positivity, soul, wisdom and jokes. Josie has been one of the most important people in my life and I get to chat to her in this SEASON FINALE of the Brown Baby podcast. We talk about climate change, the internet, why Christian Bale has never been in a romcom and the worst things we've done as parents.


THIS IS THE SEASON FINALE SO IT'S MY LAST CHANCE TO PLUG MY BOOK BUY MY BOOK PLEASE PLEASE BUY MY BOOK.


Welcome to Brown Baby, a podcast about parenting and kids and family that asks the question, how on earth do we raise our kids to be joyful and boundless in a bleak world we’re so sad and angry about.


Hosted by me, Nikesh Shukla, a writer, a dad of two and a forty year old man who recently returned to the basketball court because he watched The Last Dance in 2020 and thought, I used to be a super sharp shooter when I was younger.


Each week, I interview fellow parents of brown babies - writers, musicians, chefs, comedians, actors and more - to talk about their parenting journeys and the highs and lows they’ve experienced along the way.

 

This is a podcast Inspired by my memoir, Brown Baby: A Memoir of Race, Family and Home. A frank, funny and poignant look at parenting, Brown Baby will spark honest, self-effacing conversation about how we tell our kids about the world. Featuring parenting fails, plus the best (and worst) advice Nikesh and his guests have ever received, this is the comforting, uplifting podcast for anyone who’s ever found themselves searching for answers in a sleep-deprived Google hole.
