Comedian Sara Pascoe explains the complex human lady animal
"What's it like being a female comedian?"
It's a question that Sara Pascoe has fielded so often that it inspired her to write a whole book. Animal: The Autobiography of the Female Body offers a cheeky but well-researched reply to the inquiry, with a focus on the female part.

Pascoe joins Shad to discuss.
