On this installation of How Was Your Week, musician, songwriter, former Soul Coughing-frontman and author MIKE DOUGHTY is here to discuss his new memoir, THE BOOK OF DRUGS. Also covered in this very excellent interview: what happened when drugs no longer worked versus how great it was when they did, Mike's contempt for his former bandmates, the myth of rock-bottom when it comes to addiction, and what the horrible term "corn-cobbing" means.
Also, Julie recaps a particularly odd and disturbing episode of DINERS, DRIVE-INS AND DIVES, digests rich foods on-air, and bemoans the GOOP app.
Plus! Mariah Carey's work ethic! Anthony Weiner's devilish wish! Candle-eating dogs! And some exciting details about the February 2nd announcement we've teased you about in the past.
A show that's surely "WINNING," in that it leaves 2011 behind with style and grace. Enjoy it!
On this week's episode of How Was Your Week, the hilarious KURT BRAUNOHLER joins Julie to tell her a wonderful and insane story that explains exactly why he is bound for Hades, and covers the topics of ventriloquist dummies, duct tape belts, and the glut of pre-9/11 prank shows.

A magical show during a magical time of the year!

Then, the gorgeous comic actress ARI GRAYNOR talks about her new film, The Sitter, what it's like to be typecast as "the girl who receives oral sex in the first scene of things," getting brutal notes from Woody Allen, and how Barbra Streisand makes an entrance on set.

A delightful show packed to its hilt with holiday spirit!

Then, the scrumptious GABE LIEDMAN contemplates some of his favorite topics under the umbrella of "The Dark Arts," including his fascination with the Stone Phillips interview with Jeffrey Dahmer & Dahmer's poor parents, whether or not he finds clowns scary, and the role of Goblins in today's Vampire and Ghost-centric times.
