Between 1997 and 2011, MTV aired Daria, an animated series about a brainy, sardonic, deadpan suburban teenager, who had not low self-esteem but "low esteem for everyone else." She was a heroine to many females, including Brittany Ashley and Laura Zak. Ashley is a writer-actress who's created videos for BuzzFeed, and Zak co-wrote the 2016 Emmy-nominated web series Her Story, about transgender women. Ashley and Zak share their appreciation for the bespectacled redhead on their new podcast, Sicker Sadder World, where they break down Daria episodes and characters and how they relate to our current culture. For the podcast's first live taping, the two will screen and discuss season-one episode "Malled" — the one where Daria and her classmates go on a field trip to "that repository of human greed and debasement" — with guests Gaby Dunn, Ira Madison III and Navid Sinaki, as well as singer Mindy James, who'll perform a cover of the cartoon's theme song, "You're Standing on My Neck."
