I LOVED Diablo Cody, and I was pretty sure I would hate her despite being a fan of her screen plays. It just goes to show that you can’t judge someone until you get to meet them—or meet them vicariously through Marc Maron’s podcast, as was the case with me. I assumed she’d be a pretentious, cynical, snarky, hipster dick head like so many of my generation. She was the opposite and it was so refreshing! She gets bonus points from me for loving Brian Wilson! She sounds like she’s an even more fanatical Beach Boys fan than me. I thought she was great. Seems like a genuinely nice person.
