Leah Hazard talks to award-winning editor, writer, speaker, podcast host, and digital media consultant (who likes talking and thinking about women and work) Jenn Romolini about why motherhood is a "fucking scam". Her 2017 book "Weird in a World That's Not: A Career Guide for Misfits, F*ckups, and Failures" was named one of the best leadership books of the year by Fast Company and the “best personal development and human behaviour” book of 2017 by Porchlight Books.

Jenn is the former Vice President of Content for Zooey Deschanel's HelloGiggles and the deputy editor of Lucky Magazine and her recent work has appeared in The New York Times, Audible, Catapult, ELLE, and many others. In 2019, she was chosen as one of ten authors to create The New York Times's “Working Women’s Handbook” and she is currently working on heer second book, “Ambition Monster,” a memoir about the connection between ambition and trauma.

Oh, and she co-hosts a weekly podcast for women over 40 with her old boss, former Sassy editor and Lucky Mag editor-in-chief, Kim France. It’s called Everything Is Fine.
