Who is Gynomite?
Hi, I’m Emily! Until a few years ago, I was a couples and family therapist that battled mental illness and excuses all across our great nation. Now, I’m a freelance writer, comedy producer, and podcaster. I believe happiness is hip, and for this reason, I made a terrible goth in high school.
Here at Gynomite, I take pop culture seriously and think psychology is fun.
I have written weird stuff for Bust magazine, Dame magazine, and the now defunct Jane magazine. I wrote/adapted the ToykoPop manga Neko Ramen, and until very recently I was a regular contributor to Lemondrop (which is now called MyDaily) as well as TV.com. I currently write for Nerdist, xoJane, and Huffington Post. I have also been known to write for Premiere and Guyspeak, and my writing has been reposted to YourTango, Jezebel, and The Frisky.
If you need a writer that can speak to both the icky squishy side of love and relationships, as well as the cold hard clinical facts, I’m your girl. But if you need something other than writing…
I am the loving producer-mother of the weekly comedy show The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail- at NerdMelt Theater on Sunset Blvd in LA! I like producing live shows, and am available for such things if you need them.
I am also the cohost of the Nerdist Industries podcast The Indoor Kids, all about the culture of video games, alongside my husband Kumail Nanjiani. We also host The Indoor Kids webshow on The Nerdist YouTube network!
If you need to reach me, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and if you have an emotional quandary you want feedback on, you can email email@example.com- all emails kept confidential.
By the way, I am not the lovely and talented Emily Gordon of EmDashes, and I am not, unfortunately, connected to the book Gynomite: Fearless Feminist Porn. The origin story of the name Gynomite is here.
