Hello! This week's show couldn't be more delicious.
First, the delightful HALLE KIEFER is here to discuss growing up on a farm, the miseducation of youngsters who think they can become pregnant from silly things, and the difference between funny and fun.
Then, chef, author, restauranteur and goddamn wonderful human being PICHET ONG joins Julie to talk about what white sugar does, which actress a chocolate chip cookie would be, what his last meal would be, and why he watched GREEN CARD on Hulu the other night.
Plus: When The Today Show became Rocky & Bullwinkle, the time Dane Cook needed diarrhea medicine, the possible ulterior motive behind ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, the horrors of Zog Sports, and a reprise of the We Are All Monica Lewinsky sermon.
Enjoy this wonderful summer show!
Hot enough for you? Haha! This week's podcast features one of God's Earth's funniest comedians, BRENT WEINBACH, who joins Julie to discuss how he got the lead actor in his comedy video, ULTIMATE DRUMMING TECHNIQUE, to keep an erection, how urban youths taught him the phrase "You doin' too much," and more. Then, they sample candy together.
Also, GABE DURHAM, the author of FUN CAMP: A Novel in Shorts, joins us to read from his new book. It is a great book and it takes place in a week-long sort of Christian-y kind of summer camp. I know that's not a great description, but the book is really truly great and you should purchase it for your brain and eyes.
Plus: Why people who grow up in different countries are fundamentally unloveable, the elusive phenomenon of a child-like imagination, how dumb it is to be surprised by a women's prison show with hot lezzie action, the overwhelming Paul Rudnickiness of The Stepford Wives remake, and why it is unacceptable to ever use the search bar on a porn site. Oh, and--PLATYPUSSES! And why they are funny.
Hi Guys!!!!!! This week's HWYW features a musical legend playing his purty songs in my kitchen, and a lot of other fun stuff as well.
First and foremost, FREEDY JOHNSTON is here to play a few songs and tell us some stories within petting distance of Jimmy Jazz. Enjoy Freedy's beautiful renditions of BAD REPUTATION, THE MORTICIAN'S DAUGHTER, SEVENTIES GIRL, and his cover of THE LOOK OF LOVE, plus a haunting version of the first song he ever wrote--SPARKY THE HEROIC DOG.
Also, after watching THE SOURCE FAMILY documentary, Julie throws her hat in the ring to become the first-ever female cult leader, and sets the criteria for what will be expected from her followers.
Plus: why WICHITA LINEMAN is such a haunting song (it's UNFINISHED!), how those post-feminist vibrator parties actually make us feel, the quandry of porn, the sensitivity of The Long Island Princesses when it comes to 9/11 heroes, and what it must be like to be Robin Thicke.
A wonderful and very special show for you to enjoy! Viva la Freedy!
Happy Belated Birthday, America! This week's HWYW is a family affair for sure, and not just because MRS. SPOONY IS IN THE FAMILY WAY!!
Join us as we meet friends of the show and join hands with our lifelong relatives.
First of all, MARRILEE WILSON, the pioneer of an email meme and so much more, is here to tell us how she came to reach out with the subject header "Greetings from a Black Woman in Halifax, Nova Scotia," and who she is, exactly. This is a fabulous story from a wonderful woman! And what a nice opportunity to get to know a character from our universe as a human being. She is a gem!
Then, HWYW patriarch and dog-loving rock star TED LEO joins Julie to interview dog trainer and TV personality ANDREA ARDEN, who used to be on the world's best show, UNDERDOG TO WONDERDOG. Together, Julie and Ted get to the bottom of what it's like to spend one day a week hanging out with puppies, what it says about you if you have a cocker spaniel, why huskies are hard to train, and what the deal is with horse people.
Plus: Australians and MDMA and how they impacted this year's Pride, how Tim Minchin's godlessness made MATILDA perfect, what kind of dog Garrison Keillor would be, how overwhelming Julianne Moore is and how a Twitter birthday greeting from her can shake you to your core, Pepa's inevitable prowess in the sack, and the pull of the slightly unfamiliar as it compares to the terror of change.
What a show!
