In episode two, Ashley welcomes her friend IRL, comedian Amber Ruffin to talk about finding friends, achieving a dream career, and how to survive the holidays without picking a fight, or maybe just one really good fight.

If there’s anything that’s gotten us through the last two years, it’s been our friendships. Who better than Ashley’s own friend, comedian and writer at Late Night With Seth Meyers, Amber Ruffin to offer their tips on how to develop a friend circle from scratch as an adult, keep the peace during the holiday season, and turn your passion into a paycheck.
Before you go, we hope you’ll consider supporting DAME’s journalism.
Today, just tiny number of corporations and billionaire owners are in control the news we watch and read. That influence shapes our culture and our understanding of the world. But at DAME, we serve as a counterbalance by doing things differently. We’re reader funded, which means our only agenda is to serve our readers. No both sides, no false equivalencies, no billionaire interests. Just our mission to publish the information and reporting that help you navigate the most complex issues we face.
But to keep publishing, stay independent and paywall free for all, we urgently need more support. During our Spring Membership drive, we hope you’ll join the community helping to build a more equitable media landscape with a monthly membership of just $5.00 per month or one-time gift in any amount.
