I don't believe that there's only one successful ex-stripper in Hollywood — but I do believe that out of all of them, Diablo Cody may be the coolest. And the smartest. Here are a few reasons to hate her — she's 29, and her screenplay for the darling little film Juno is up for an Oscar. Ah, but check out the reasons to love and admire her: she's a former stripper, author, and blogger (hey! I'm one of those! Blogger that is.). I want to say right here that I would love to link to her blog, but I think that its title wouldn't be welcome here on NPR's servers, so I'll just tell you to type "Diablo Cody," and "blog" into Google, and enjoy. Anyway, today we'll be talking to Diablo about her careers (all of them), her writing, and of course, her name. (She was born Brook Busey, which also ain't bad on the hip scale).
