Round of applause for this week’s guest: comedian Phoebe Robinson of “2 Dope Queens” fame. She just published her book of hilarious and insightful essays “Please Don't Sit on My Bed in Your Outside Clothes” (which...relatable). And today, she’s here sharing some of her absolute faves...

My dream book club guests and book...Samantha Irby, Adam Grant, Austin Channing Brown, Bono, Cathy Park Hong. Would be dope to discuss Susan Cain's "Quiet" with all of them.

Product I can’t live without...Clean Skin Club XL bamboo face towels.

The beauty item I swear by...Buttah Skin face cleanser.

Last TV series I binged..."Love on the Spectrum." It's on Netflix and it's a docuseries about various people on the autism spectrum and their journey to find love. Some are single; some are in relationships. It's so sweet and funny and enriching. Would recommend it to everyone.

Go-to host gift when I’m invited over to someone's home...A candle from The 125 Collection. Their blood orange–scented candles are my fave.

Smartest purchase I’ve made recently...Calma Llama squeeze toy. Life is stressful, so it's nice to have something to squeeze. I bought one for all my employees at my production company.

Pssst: This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
