Sara has a keen eye for many things!

Dale readies himself for an insightful quest in this wide-reaching conversation with comedian, author, host, and writer of things on the internet, Sara Benincasa. Sara welcomed Dale to her East Coast apartment for some naturally-sweetened afternoon tea and a discussion that touched on the many layers of Gamergate; the well-rounded readers of Playboy; the mesmerizing chicken screen at LaGuardia, and the comforting sensation of a homemade smoothie.
