In 2014, writer Nora McInerny had a year like few others: she miscarried a child, then lost her father and her husband to cancer.

Nora shares a story from her recent memoir in the audio above.
As Senior Correspondent for "The Daily Show," Hasan Minhaj spends his days skewering the political theater. But he's also doing theater of his own.
