Therapy in Fiction and Milk Fed by Melissa Broder
Play • 55 min

We love insights and character motivation on this podcast! 😤 But we also like scenes that move the story forward.

This week, we discuss the hilarious Milk Fed by Melissa Broder (2021) and how she introduces a therapist character who feels realistic while still creating all of the insights that we expect when a character goes to therapy.

A link we promised to include in the show notes: Listen to Danez Smith read their poem “Dear White America”
