We Fangirled Hard with Janet Varney About Teen Years, Comedy, and LEGEND OF KORRA

There are a lot of reasons to love Janet Varney. The comedian and actor has been doing the damn thing for over 17 years, between co-founding the San Francisco Sketchfest, making us laugh and cry on shows like The Legend of Korra, You’re the Worst, and Stan Against Evil, or bringing it back to the good ol’ days on her podcast The JV Club. Basically, she’s the intersection of all of your interests—so we were thrilled to have her on Fangirling.

Because, I mean, who doesn’t love to wax nostalgically about, arguably, the most pivotal time in all peoples’ lives? Janet does, we do, and so do so many of our favorite movies and TV, so we chatted about that, working in comedy, creating an iconic comedy festival, and being a part of the thoroughly impactful Legend of Korra.

Like what you saw there? Interested in more discussions with, by, and about women, where everyone—yes everyone (and yes, even you!)—is invited to nerd out about science and culture, talk about what matters, learn new things, nerd out over history, meet awesome ladies, and feel all your myriad feelings from a decidedly different point of view? Well let me go out on a limb and say that Fangirling is for you! And this season, we’ve got a heaping helping of everything you could want, every Wednesday on Alpha.

Besides, you’re not going to want to miss our fabulous guests, like Phoebe Robinson talking Game of Thrones in the Khaleesi Korner, Blue Planet II producer Orla Doherty, a spotlight on artist Jen Bartel, or our regular segments like “Worst Advice,” “Mansplain It to Me,” and “Real Fake Spoilers”!

So, really, you have no excuse. And why would you want to miss this? Get yourself in on the guilt-free fangirlsplosion with the hashtag #FangirlingIsBack. Who says being smart and having a lot of feelings are mutually exclusive?

Alicia Lutes is the Managing Editor, creator/host of Fangirling, and resident Khaleesi of House Nerdist. Find her on Twitter!
