040 - Aidy Bryant - Comedian & Actress
Comedian and actor Aidy Bryant isn't just living her best life, she is living everyone's best life. She got hired at Saturday Night Live at age 25. She co-wrote a short film that's beloved by the Vimeo staff. Louis C.K. didn't just tell her she was funny after a table read, he hired her for his web series without requiring she audition. And you know what she told Oh Boy host Jay Buim about all of this? The most rewarding part has been the friendships. Say "aww" and plug your headphones in. You're going to love this one. In partnership with Squarespace. Want more Aidy? @aidybryant Want more Jay? @beardwizard Edited by Jay Buim Produced by Kate Barnett

021 - Daryl K - Fashion Designer
This week in our 21st episode of Oh Boy, Jay sits down with Daryl Kerrigan -- notable driver of that downtown, 90s rocker aesthetic and, fun fact!, costume designer for My Cousin Vinny. Much of Kerrigan's current press is revolving around her collaboration with Madewell. The look is considerably more 70s than what you may think you know Daryl K for, but you know what they say: you can take the girl out of the vinyl pants, but you can't take the East Village music scene out of the girl.

033 - Gail Simmons - 'Top Chef' Judge, Author & Food Writer
Today’s episode of Oh Boy features none other than Gail Simmons. It will comfort you to know that Simmons, like everyone else, didn’t have a clue what she wanted to do after college. She didn’t really know what she wanted to do while in college, either. In fact…she didn’t even know anything about food, according to a food editor she spoke to while hunting for her first job. So how did she get to be who she is and where she is, with two hit shows -- Top Chef and Top Chef: Just Desserts -- and a published book with a title that proclaims, “I have the best job ever!” (It’s called “Talking With My Mouth Full: My Life As a Professional Eater,” hello!)? Wellll…you just have to plug in your headphones and listen to this episode, don’t you? Want more Gail? @ gailsimmonseats Want more Jay? @beardwizard Edited by Jay Buim Produced by Kate Barnett
028 - Tennessee Thomas - Drummer & Political Activist
Tennessee Thomas makes the backslash career look good. She runs The Deep End Club; she's a drummer -- currently for Elvis Costello and the Attractions, and if you used to listen to The Like, that's her on the beat; she's an actress; and she makes PSAs. Host Jay Buim sat down with Thomas to discuss all of the above, but this time, rather than telling you to grab your headphones, I suggest you pack your room with foam egg crates and turn the volume up. Drum roll, please... Want more Tennessee? @tennesseebunny Want more Jay? @beardwizard Edited by Jay Buim Produced by Kate Barnett

The daughter of immigrants, Mason shares her decision to follow a different path -- the Internet generation's American Dream -- and the process of proving to her parents that she was making the right choices, that quitting her job to enter an industry notorious for its critical eye wasn't totally insane. When discussing body positivity, industry diversity and self-acceptance, she's funny, real and bold. That's Nicolette Mason for you. Listen to learn more.

037 - Aurora James - Founder of Brother Vellies
When you meet Aurora James, CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund-winning designer of Brother Vellies -- a footwear-centric accessories label that works with artisans in Africa -- her shoes make a lot of sense. They are unique. Bold. Many are like nothing you've seen before, and all communicate a strong point of view. That's absolutely how I'd describe the designer. Her personal style is reflective of her inherent taste, as well as the colorful and sometimes complicated layering of cultures she's been introduced to over the course of her life. So is her character, strong sense of self-worth and steady view of the world. Want to know more? So did Jay Buim, host of Oh Boy. Headphones in, and enjoy.
