EP. 62 — Marina Diamandis

Singer, songwriter, and record producer Marina Diamandis joins Jameela this week to discuss the difficulties of living (and peeing!) on a tour bus, Marina’s four year break before this most recent album, Marina’s journey with her eating disorder, and their shared uncertainty on whether either of them want to have children. Marina’s new album Ancient Dreams In a Modern Land is out now!


Jameela: [00:00:00] Hello and welcome to another episode of I Weigh with Jameela Jamil, I hope you’re well, I’m very excited for today’s episode because it’s with someone I really adore. Hopefully you enjoyed my episode with Mae Martin just a couple of weeks ago. They are such an extraordinary person. I got so many lovely messages from all of you, but I love having someone on who I’ve known for ten years or so, especially someone who I met when I was really young. And my guest this week is one of those people. I met her at the very beginning of my career. She was also starting her’s out. And we’ve just kind of been adjacent to one another throughout and trying to find time to become friends, but not being able to manage to find that time kind of until right now during this episode that you’re about to hear. I think after that it was just sort of it’s a done deal. That’s it. She stuck with me. Now we’re going to be friend
