When artist, actor and comedian Abbi Jacobson told her friends that she was embarking on a three week road trip across the United States, they had a lot of questions. Jacobson had been through an emotional year: she started a podcast, made the decision to end her wildly success TV show Broad City, and she went through a bad breakup. She talks to Tom Power about hitting the reset button with this road trip, and her new book, which chronicles that journey.
