It's a clip show-palooza this week, also known as a "best of" show! The 25th episode of How Was Your Week features all-new content from Julie, who is still recovering from her summer cold, and does not wish to infect new interview subjects with it, because she is a nice and civilized person.

Plus, old favorites and never-before heard footage from some of the best guests on the show so far, including JOAN RIVERS, PATTON OSWALT, HOLLY SCHLESINGER, NEKO CASE, BILLY EICHNER and JAMES URBANIAK! This is a treat for newcomers to How Was Your Week and old-timey HWYW veterans alike. A "Trial and Travel" aisle grab-bag of comedy entertainment.

Also in this episode, Julie discusses Gloria Steinem's joyless tap dancing, Rose MacGowan's arc from cult baby to Boston Terrier owner, how nobody is prepared for the Video Music Awards at all, the difference between certain baboons, and what celebrity she associates with the term "Moon Face."

Plus, Patton Oswalt on the hubris of niche stand-ups! Joan Rivers on the desirability of Martin Mull! Neko Case on masturbating walruses! Billy Eichner on Oprah's arms! James Urbaniak on Alec Guiness's attitude toward Tarot cards! And Holly Schlesinger on French Stewart's break-out role on "Private Practice."

And! Mario Lopez's baby! The premiere episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, uncut! And another Geena Davis-related plea.

On this week's episode of How Was Your Week?, America's Gentleman, PAUL F. TOMPKINS, discusses with Julie the horrors of the sea, the delights of podcasting, and the suits Steve Buscemi is forced to stand behind on the HBO program, "Boardwalk Empires." 

Also! The delightful and hilarious JAMIE DENBO (Terriers, Ronna & Beverly) brings us an enchanting list of her three favorite musicals, and talks about exactly which scene in "Godspell" will chill you to your meat-bones. This conversation will charm you, whether or not you are willing to be charmed. Beware!

Plus: Julie is high on sizzurps for most of this podcast, because she is sick! And in this state, the following topics are discussed by her: Beverly D'Angelo's haunted house, the Dice-Man's cat, Paste Magazine's preference for Ruth Buzzi over Julie Klausner when it comes to assembling lists, Bruce Vilanch's "blind item" talk, Judith Regan's hair, and not much else that doesn't have to do with celebrities or television, sadly because Julie has not left her apartment in a week due to her being sick, as previously mentioned.

But! This fact should not deter you from listening from this episode at once--and not as charity! It is a bowtie-spinning blockbuster of an hour-and-change of comedy.

On this week's episode of How Was Your Week?, the delightful LARAINE NEWMAN (Saturday Night Live) talks to Julie about her voiceover career, dogs, and the time she blew an audition for Sandra Bernhard's part in The King of Comedy.  Then, documentary filmmaker LISA F. JACKSON discusses her incredible HBO documentary, Sex Crimes Unit, and sheds light on the DSK trial and the Rape Cops. It is a fascinating conversation, I assure you.

Plus: Julie reads lube copy, wishes there was more of that Heidi Fleiss documentary, recaps the world's most horrifying episode yet of My Strange Addiction, and brings back the JC Penney Facebook feature you miss and love from past episodes!

A fun and thought-provoking episode you will enjoy & be fascinated by.

On this week's episode of How Was Your Week?, the wonderful STEVE AGEE ("The Sarah Silverman Show") discusses his favorite TV show of all time, "Three's Company," and lists his three most cherished episodes. Then, the hilarious Bryan Safi (That's Gay on Current TV) tells Julie about his HORRIFYING SPIDER BITE EXPERIENCE and about the time he met Sharon Stone. How will you ever be able to sleep again once you hear these tales in tandem??

Plus: "Scrubbings" creator Bill Lawrence's diatribe against a bad review, why Morgan Spurlock will never be in the Redhead Hall of Fame, what palladium pants are, and how Sharon Stone orders chamomile tea.

Also! The Terri/Cindy/Chrissy conundrum! How you're not supposed to cancel lunch with George Hamilton! And Agee's Three's Company spec prequel.

A fun, excellent and occasionally gross episode--some of which was RECORDED IN JULIE'S RENTAL CAR! That is a bonus fun fact.
