GABRIELLE MOSS’s writing has appeared in Slate, GQ, The Hairpin, The Toast, Bitch, and other places. She is an editor at Bustle. She is suspicious of both nature and human kindness, which is why she lives in New York City.

JESSE OXFELD was a journalist for a long time, at places including New York Magazine and Gawker, plus he spent five years as the New York Observer’s theater critic. Now he’s an ad copywriter. There is less at-work drinking than he was led to expect.

GEORGE PEYTON GORDON III (yes, that’s his real name) is a comedian who you can see doing stand-up almost every night in New York City, then argue with him about things like which is the better Weezer album—Pinkertonor Blue (definitely Pinkerton)—or why Alien is better than Aliens (because it just is). He has been in the New York Underground Festival, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR., and The Out of Bounds Festival in Austin.

SAM GRITTNER is a writer and stand-up comedian who has performed at UCB, The Creek & The Cave, and on Tinder LIVE, and elsewhere. He is the co-host of Let Me Finish and the creator of @TonightOnGirls

ANITA FLORES has written for Paste, Laughspin, Portable TV, Nerve, and currently works for Above Average. She has a web series called Questionable Drawings where she interviews comedians and animates their responses. You should watch it. Follow her on Twitter @anitajewtina for updates on pizza and Chelsea Grammer’s career.
