DANA FARBER BENEFIT
GEMMA LINZER-COOLIDGE – Lydia Anderson
Hey, Greater Bostonians. It’s me, Gemma-Linzer Coolidge. And you know one thing I fluffing hate? (beat) Yeah, okay, that’s an impossible question for you to answer. Throw a rock and if you hit something, I probably hate it. Most of you probably thought “writing crap advice columns” or “tuna subs” or “Dipshit” and you’d be right. But no, the thing I hate the most is something I’m pretty sure we all hate. And that thing is cancer.
Fuck cancer. (Monty cries). Sorry Monty, no, I can’t downplay that one. Fuck Cancer.
That’s why I’m asking you to support my run to benefit the Dana-Farber Institute. Since its founding in 1947, Dana-Farber has been committed to providing adults and children with cancer the best treatment available today, while developing tomorrow’s cures through cutting-edge research. if you’re able to give anything to help us cancel cancer, please check the link in the show notes, or visit the Greater Boston twitter page.
Thanks. Now enjoy the episode. It’s a good one. I’m in it a lot.

LIke, it would go up like a…like a pine needle. And just after he died, you know, I mean the house is together because he was maintaining it? So like, with bubblegum and like duct tape. Obviously it was very hard when he died in general, but then it was like that summer we said goodbye to the…the house. And that was really hard, and I also had to…give up traditions.
