Greetings from Hurricaneville, USA! Here is a special episode of How Was Your Week exclusively about Hurricane Sandy, a horrible disaster that has fucked up so much shit.

So you know: Julie walked over the Brooklyn Bridge, past makeshift soup lines and through apocalyptic Chinatown, and up ten flights of stairs, just to retrieve podcasting equipment. This doesn't make her a hero! It makes her a PODCASTER. Hooray for this. Give to the Red Cross. ANYWAY.

This show features two guests in physical and emotional proximity to Julie, both of whom speak about the storm at length, and what their experience with Sandy has taught them. First up, CHRIS 'SPOONY' SPOONER is here to talk about volunteering at the Armory, feeding his work fish, naming his machete, experiencing survivor's guilt, catching the most recent episode of Boredwalk Empirezzzz before the lights went out, and how you can help.

Then, JACK FAGAN, who is Julie's boyfriend, talks about the ordeals of the past week, watching Julie inhale ravioli from a can, missing Halloween, enjoying a hot shower, sharing a cab with strangers, being wary of Radio Shack things, drinking earlier than usual, having a fight half an hour into the lights being out, and freaking out over the possibility of having to use a payphone.

Plus: What makes Chris Christie cry consistently, who Roz Chast is and where her legs went, what NOT to post on Facebook during a crisis, why you mustn't go to a second location with a Japanese businessman, and the stealth show tunes that Ben Folds writes. 

A very special episode during a horrible time in NYC history. I hope you love it.
