How do you do? This week's episode of HOW WAS YOUR WEEK features HARRIS WITTELS, a funny person you enjoy from his work on Parks & Recreation and on his Phish-themed Earwolf podcast. Harris and Julie have a good time meeting each other for the first time in person and talking about drugs and why Harris does them and how, masturbating at a slumber party with friends in a room, and the folly of rivalry with a man who is basically your comedy brother.

Then, author BENJAMIN NUGENT joins us to talk about his fascinating non-fiction book, AMERICAN NERD, and his new novel, GOOD KIDS. This is an interesting conversation, I swear! Topics covered include: the time people in Wiliamsburg thought it was a good idea to snort VCR head cleaner, the subconscious racism of our perception of nerds in this country, the history of the Boy Scouts, and whether it's a better goal to think more about the parent you do not necessarily identify with.

Also! Some strong feelings about Neil LaBute, some Tony Award fashion observations, a celebration of Panera Bread's cookies, concern and appreciation for Millennial sex attitudes, a command concerning women and eyeliner in the summer months, and a bold taking of sides in the Franzen versus Cats debacle. Hooray, hooray, a podcast for you today!
