MariNaomi is an author and illustrator, combining her talents as a writer and an artist to tell stories of "love, sex, failure [and] hope." She published the zine "Estrus Comics" for ten years, as well as produced work in others mediums, such as painting and collage. Her first book, "Kiss & Tell: A Romantic Resume, Ages 0 to 22" came out in 2011 as she began a tour with the feminist literary collective Sister Spit, and she is working on her second book, "Turning Japanese."

Mari joins BFH on the podcast to discuss the pivotal role Ron Paul played in her life (well, at least the very first part), growing up in the Bay Area and her struggles as an independent artist, and her more recent roles in academia and mentoring. They also chat about hostess bars, "Henry and Glenn Forever and Ever," hanging out with Armisted Maupin on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and tongue baths from animal friends (hear one live on the air!). 

Featuring the music of The The.
