What’re You Doing, You Beautiful Dummy?

By What're You Doing You Beautiful Dummy

Jenni Stukin has seen some things. A lot of things. But the one thing she’s seen the most of is FAILURE. And she's sharing her experiences with you! Partially in the hope she can help you avoid her mistakes, partially because she can't afford therapy but mostly so she has SOMETHING to point to when her mother asks what she's doing with her life. “What’re You Doing, You Beautiful Dummy?” is a comedy podcast where each episode Jenni, her producer Louis and an assortment of guests discuss life's many pitfalls and how they helped shape them into who they didn't know they wanted to become.
