It's been a year of How Was Your Week! Can you believe it? Remember a year ago when the podcast began? That's when I was carrying you!
On this One Year Anniversary episode of HWYW, Barney's creative ambassador, author, humorist, bon-vivant and general full-on f'ing icon SIMON DOONAN joins Julie to discuss his new book, Gay Men Don't Get Fat, the influence of celebrity culture on style, how marvelous sweeping generalizations are, and numerous important facts about Raquel Welch, not least of which is that she and Camille Paglia are good friends (!!!)
Then, author and Monkees historian ERIC LEFCOWITZ sits down with Julie, the week after Davy Jones passed away, to talk about his memories of Davy, the rivalries in the group, the mad beauty of HEAD, and what happened after the band got together for Headquarters. Warning: this is a pretty intense conversation between two hardcore Monkees nerds. If it's Greek to you, consider buying Eric's book first!
Plus, Julie expresses concern about Pat Kiernan's eye not being on the prize, bemoans Jesus's husky understudy, teaches her cat how to use a scratching post with her own stupid fingernails, and reminds a certain enemy of the show that things are usually about Uggie.
A podcast that is so much better than the "paper"-themed one year anniversary gift that is customary. Nobody wants your dead trees, grandma!
