Emmy chat: Carrie Brownstein on 'Portlandia,' 'Transparent' on Wednesday

Join Carrie Brownstein to talk @portlandia, @Sleater_Kinney and more. Questions? Tweet them w/ #AskLATimes

You may know Carrie Brownstein from "Portlandia," the IFC comedy she created with Fred Armisen. You may also know her from her acclaimed rock band Sleater-Kinney, which released its first album in a decade earlier this year and toured behind it in the spring. She also appears in the acclaimed Amazon Prime series "Transparent" and has a role in Todd Haynes' next movie, "Carol," which premiered at Cannes last month. Oh ... and she's writing a movie version of the British TV series "Lost in Austen," picking up where the late Nora Ephron left off.

One more thing: Her memoir, "Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl," will be published in October.

Brownstein will also be stopping by The Times on Wednesday at 11 a.m. PDT to talk about any and all of these things, though we might be simply asking her for tips on productivity and time management.

When Armisen dropped by recently, he told us that the next season of "Portlandia" will focus more on "Fred" and "Carrie." Then again, he also believes that the Earth should preemptively remove itself from the list of known planets, which made sense at the time, but now, we're not so sure. So we'll ask Brownstein for confirmation on these matters. And we'll ask your questions too. Just tweet them to us, using the hashtag #askLATimes.
