Episode 66: Michaela Watkins
The bitter divorce between her sexually repressed mother and left-brained mathmetician father who openly complained of his ex-wife's frigidity left an indelible mark on Michaela's view of sex, intimacy and relationships. A moment of clarity changed her path when she realized the men she felt close and safe to had no sex appeal, and the men who had sex appeal made her insecure and crazy. Listeners may recognize Michaela from Saturday Night Live, Wanderlust, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The New Adventures of Old Christine and Enlightened. She is also a member of the Groundlings.
