Amy Poehler was recently named one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2011, and for good reason. Amy has written and performed for influential shows such as Upright Citizens Brigade, Saturday Night Live, and most recently Parks and Recreation. From Colby to Leslie Knope, Amy has been bringing the funny consistently for over a decade and has the love and support from the world to prove it.

Jeff could not believe that Amy Poehler existed the first time they met. Amy explains why the podcast is like the new student film, shares some of the cool questions her children ask her, and tells us what kind of advice the older version of herself would give her present self. It’s a delightful conversation filled with talk of writing, bar mitzvahs, and public nudity.
