Audible Theater: Approval Junkie — Faith Salie in Conversation with Josh Gondelman

Faith Salie and Josh Gondelman

Join Emmy Award-winning comedian and journalist Faith Salie with writer and comic Josh Gondelman on Audible’s new production of Faith’s one-woman show Approval Junkie.

A hilarious and heartbreaking account of looking for validation in all the wrong places, Approval Junkie is a deeply personal ode to self-acceptance showcasing Faith Salie’s talent as both writer and performer. Watch her and Gondelman discuss how the show came to be — the line between real life and performance, reckoning with the impulse to seek approval, candid stories that didn’t make it into the show, and much more.
