Transcript for Claudia Oshry of ‘Girl With No Job’ talks about her new book
We are back now with Claudia oshry, the woman behind the popular Instagram account "Girl with no job." Well, she's now taking the leap from the screen to the page with her new book, "Girl with no job," the crazy beautiful life of an Instagram thirst monster. Good morning, Claudia. Thanks for being W us. Hi, Amy. Good morning. And good morning, America. Sorry I've always wanted to say that. I'm sure everyone says that. Totally get it. Super fun to say. Glad you got your opportunity. The book is lighthearted. I love the title but want to start off with something serious. You were -- you write about being canceled. Back in 2018 you had backlash with some tweets that you had from before. How did you handle all of that? It was really difficult. I think a lot of people saw it unfold in the public but I went through a lot of stuff privately dealing with the mental anxiety and shame and still working through a lot of it and in the book I detail what it was like and the things I took away from it. I'm kind of grateful for the experience and feel like I don't know if I would be the same type of person if I didn't have to learn those lessons in a public way and had a lack of understanding about the world around me and that gave me a new sense of empathy so even though it was difficult to go through I'm glad to have gotten to the other side of it. Yeah, that's very good to hear there is another side to it after you learned lessons that are even painful to learn sometimes in a public setting. Your followers know you as the girl with no job but that's not entirely accurate because you're a comedian, you're a podcaster, you even started your own podcast network. So why is that your handle? So I started in college about seven or eight years and started "Girl with no job" when I got my very first internship in college and thought it would be like this devil wears Prada fabulous blog and ends up getting fired from the internship so changed the name of the blog from girl with a job to girl with no job and that handle just really helped accelerate the success of the brand. I think a lot of people especially my generation millenials related to the concept of not wanting a traditional job and now we're here, seven or eight years. 3 million followers on Instagram, definitely influencer status. Would you consider yourself an influencer? What would you like to influence people with? Well, I think today I would consider myself an author but, yes, most days I consider myself a podcaster/influencer and just love to talk about pop culture. I've always been obsessed with talking about celebrity, TV, pop culture and so I basically just turned my hobby into a job and I chronicle in the book how I did that. And so I like to think I influence the young minds about real housewives and "The bachelorette." So your podcast is called "The morning toast." We want to get your opinion. We'll call this tea with your morning toast. Favorite edition of "The real housewives." Beverly hill, the most fabulous of all the franchises because I think they have the most money and I love watching rich people on television. It's so exciting. All right, the TV show you can't live without? You know, they say people who struggle with anxiety tend to rewatch the same television show over and over again that's me. I watch "Friends" on a loop 24/7. The day they took it off Netflix was a hard day for me and the rest of "Friends" community. Juiciest binge-watch? Oh, I just watched "Bridgerton" and that was pretty some of the intimate scenes with the two main characters were quite lovely. Just getting to that part now. A lot to look forward to. Claudia's book, "Girl with no job," the crazy beautiful life of an Instagram thirst monster is out today. Thank you so much for being with us. We real I'm Morgan, and there's more to me than HIV.
