Hype Special #20 – HBO’s ‘Insecure’ with Veronica Mannion

Hosted by Selina Wilken, Pamela Gocobachi, Veronica Mannion

October 17, 2016

Hype Podcast is all about Issa Rae’s new HBO comedy Insecure this week, with special guest Veronica Mannion, who plays Kitty.

Insecure premiered Sunday, October 9 on HBO. The comedy was created by Issa Rae, whose web series Awkward Black Girl has previously been featured on Hypable.

To celebrate the launch of Rae’s series, Hype Podcast is featuring an interview with the hilarious Veronica Mannion, whose character Kitty becomes something of an antagonise to Issa in later episodes of season 1.

Veronica Mannion can also be seen in the independent musical feature Booze, Boys and Brownies, along with her web series Crowned and Long Distance. Learn more about Veronica and her many creative projects on her website.
