I spent more than five hours in the car tonight, driving to a family beach getaway for this holiday weekend.
My wife and I listened to the audiobook of Amy Poehler’s Yes Please.
It doesn’t seem to have much of a narrative arc, but it’s a fun listen. Poehler narrates herself and there are surprise guest voices who add serendipitous fun.
She is candid and occasionally crude, but she is endearing throughout with thoughtful insights and doses of life wisdom. And now I just want to binge watch Parks and Recreation.
By the way, the gold standard of comedy memoir audiobooks is Steve Martin’s Born Standing Up. So, so good.
