There’s something freeing about realizing that no one really knows what they are talking about. Charla felt a particular sense of freedom when she discovered comedy. The same can be said for actor, writer and comedian Marina Franklin, who knows that standup saved her life. In this episode we talk about how comedy shaped Marinas’ world, how the industry hasn’t really changed that much and the courage it took for her to do something she’s been hungry to do for a long time.
