It's ROOM 237 week on How Was Your Week, as this episode is all about THE SHINING and the kooky theorists that form the backbone of the aforementioned documentary.
Julie spends the hour or so talking to ROOM 237 director Rodney Ascher and producer Tim Kirk about why THE SHINING might be about, among other things: the faking of the moon landing, the Holocaust, the massacre of Native American people, and how phalluses can lurk anywhere and everywhere, including in letterboxes.
Plus, how Whole Foods is an enemy to Passover, the challenges of dressing and feeding oneself, a dumb thing to say to cat-chatting Construction Workers, Tilda Swinton's box-napping, Optitex memories, and a salute to Richard Jeni.
This week's episode of How Was Your Week comes in like a lamb and out like a lady. First, UCB comedian and writer/performer CHAD CARTER joins Julie to talk about gene therapy, dog brains, and whether all massage is erotic.
Then, author, writer and generally funny and wonderful guy TED TRAVELSTEAD is here to promote his new book, THE PETRAEUS FILES, , and tell us what it was like pretending to be a hostage-taker for criminology students, how he deals with his OCD, and why "pimp stuff" isn't cute anymore.
Plus: What the Cannibal Cop likely does and doesn't know about from pop culture right now, what SMASH has become, the hierarchy of frozen yogurt, what is most chilling about a particular British Humanzee, and a very stupid and pointless anecdote about Fancy Feast.
THIS SHOW WILL FILL THE HOLE THAT THE CANCELLATION OF "ENLIGHTENED" HAS LEFT IN YOUR LIFE I FUCKING SWEAR.
This week's episode of HWYW features two bodacious blondes and a lot of talk about the Cannibal Cop's recent conviction. First, CAROL SUE GERSHMAN, authoress of HERE COMES AMAZING YOU and THE JEWISH LADY, THE BLACK MAN AND THE ROAD TRIP is here to talk to Julie about becoming a writer later in life, what a sexy thing to do to your partner might involve, the time she went to South America for plastic surgery and then was like, "no thanks," and the night she quit drinking after she upset her cousin at a Passover Seder.
Then, CLAUDIA LONOW, creator of the new series HOW TO LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS (FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE) talks to Julie about her show biz family, her experience as a child actor on KNOTS LANDING, the joke she wrote for Sarah Silverman, and what it was like being in LA during the comedians' strike before she became a successful showrunner, which she is! This is a fascinating interview with a fascinating woman!
Also, exactly how old the Pixies makes one feel, a confession about exercise videos and their chosen accompaniment, a story about going to the vet, and AN EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT MY FUCKING HAIR AND HOW GREAT IT LOOKS EVEN THOUGH I DID SOME CRAZY SHIT TO IT. Whatever. What harm does it do in these troubling times? Precisely none.
Enjoy this show!
This week's episode of How Was Your Week is a dazzling jewel nestled in the bosom of a neverending winter. First, DAVID WAIN is here to talk to us about magic tricks, Cheryl Ladd, the tuba, and why Anjelica Huston might be the Original Suicide Girl.

Also: Udon noodles are traded in for regular-width noodles, the baby cured of HIV is inevitably cut down to size, catalogs and Glenn Hetrick's website are pondered to point of dangerous excess, and an important realization about clowns comes to its grease paint-streaked surface.
A terrific and important phase of our journey together. Take the step.

Then, theatre director and handsome man ALEX TIMBERS talks to Julie about why history is a funny topic to explore in theatre, what it's like working with David Bryne, why Germany was a perfect place to launch ROCKY: The Musical, and the time he sort of faked his friend's death.
