On this week's episode of How Was Your Week?, the wonderful SUSIE ESSMAN talks to Julie about her wardrobe on "Curb Your Enthusiasm," how menopause helped her write her book, and what breeds of dogs she and her fellow "Curb" castmembers would be if they were dogs.

Then, Videogum's GABE DELAHAYE joins Julie with two, count them (COUNT THEM, I SAID!) two lists: one of celebrities whose work he loves, but is certain he would not get along with, and one of celebrities whose work Gabe hates, but with whom he imagines he would make the fastest of friends.

Also, Julie makes an ominous prediction about Nancy Grace's even more intimate anatomy than what she recently exposed on television, lays the seeds for a "Proz-cast" spinoff (a podcast in which only prostitutes are interviewed), and speculates about the different kinds of reptiles that Patti Stanger is made of, in addition to snakes, which we have already established comprise the majority of her body and soul.

A sweet miracle of Rosh Hashanah entertainment!

On this week's episode of How Was Your Week?, PATTON OSWALT is back (!!) to talk to Julie in depth about the movie SPLASH. Subcategories of that conversation include: Whether the sexism of fucking an illiterate mermaid was subtle or blatant! Which scenes John Candy was drunk during and which he was merely hungover for! And the wonderful, Garry Marshall-ian DVD commentary of Babaloo Mandel's writing partner, Lowell Ganz.

Then, Chicago's finest son DANIEL KIBBLESMITH talks to Julie about his experience of being set up by Patti Stanger on the television show THE MILLIONAIRE MATCHMAKER, and how his life has changed since it aired. An honest and super-interesting account of what it's like to be on a reality show and have no control over your fate at all.

Also, Julie explores her Sofia Vergara crush, regrets downloading The Best of the Doors while drunk, and gets touched by The Countess and lives to tell the tale.


Plus: Patton on his new album, FINEST HOUR, and the movie he's shooting with kind-of gay icon, Johnny Knoxville. Daniel isolates the very moment in which Patti Stanger stopped being maternal toward him on the TV shoot. And the return of wishing we weren't giving Charlie Sheen attention, again.

On this week's episode of How Was Your Week?, legendary author JACKIE COLLINS talks to Julie about her new book, THE GODDESS OF VENGEANCE, and her opinions on the Entourage finale, firm vs mushy hotel pillows, Jacqueline Susann, and what sort of ethnic person she will likely be reincarnated as.

Then, comedian AMY SCHUMER joins Julie to discuss her gig on the Charlie Sheen Roast, whether there's such a thing as a "Boys' Girl," and the most effective way to hurt the feelings of a lady in comedy.

Also, Julie ponders the REVELATION in Maya Angelou's Wikipedia page about her writing process, collapses under the pressure of all the Real Housewives news from this week, and premieres her fantastic Anna Wintour impression.


Plus: Anderson Cooper's new daytime show: a hit or a miss? Glenn Close as a man: is there anything more redundant? And more ruminations on Trudie Styler, because you asked for those (you didn't).


A fabulous, epic show featuring interviews with two of the most gorgeous women alive today.

On this week's episode of How Was Your Week?, author, actor and proud Negateer DAVID RAKOFF talks to Julie about his book Half-Empty, as well as other important issues such as: which cake is the least Jewish kind of cake, what about the musical RENT made him angry, and how New York has changed in his almost thirty years of living here.

Also, Julie ponders the lessons learned after picking a fight on Twitter about Mario Lopez and circumcision, thinks way too much about Nancy Grace's upper body, and describes the contents of a superb Snack Nest.

Plus: Things people are still telling women that they need! Kelly Ripa's giant head! A celebration of defensive pessimism! And the obscurity of Chester A. Arthur.

A pleasant, funny, and occasionally poignant show that happens to coincide around the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Which we didn't want to make a whole thing about, but is true. So, give somebody you love a hug after you listen to this episode, and buy David's book, because it's wonderful. Thank you.

This episode of How Was Your Week? features Village Voice gossip columnist, author and bon vivant MICHAEL MUSTO, who joins Julie to discuss the MTV Video Music Awards, when Madonna was a C-word to him even back in the day, his love of Suzanne Somers's beautiful poetry, other New Yorkers on bikes, and his new book, "Fork on the Left, Knife in the Back."

Then, Sirius XM radio host and MTV/UCB/ StickAM/SquirtTV Internet superstar JAKE FOGELNEST comes on the show to talk about Sinead O'Connor's twitter, when exactly your "Old Guy interested in Zappa" self kicks in, why Billy Joel is funny, and his most beloved SNL sketches.

Plus: Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace and Margot Kidder and Daryl Hannah! Things you didn't even know were offensive about Sting that you can add to the list of things that are already SO offensive about Sting! The "Bull from NIGHT COURT" puppet! Rocky Horror's plot holes! And why Julie is a little suspicious about the upcoming Charlie Sheen Roast being a big set-up.

A terrific, post-storm COMEDY STORM of podcast gold.
