God Bless America! This week's episode of HWYW is bursting with PRIDE.
GILLIAN JACOBS is here to discuss what precisely Alexander Technique is, her no-good neighbors, the challenges of studying acting around photos of Patti LuPone in THE BAKER'S WIFE, and her and her mom's contrasting vacation styles.
Then, LOUIS VIRTEL joins Julie to emphatically discuss the Sandy Dennis versus Sandy Duncan situation, what color a wheat thin is, how John Mayer is our generation's Adam Huritz, and whether Alice Walker and Tracy Chapman dated.
Also: how Wendy Davis's hair is like a Nine Inch Nails single, the coolest way to commit suicide, why this one Black Crowes song we once found acceptable is actually completely dumb, the peril of not knowing when to eat spaghetti when you are unemployed, and what is "a bit much" to hear in your OB-GYN's office.
Happy Pride Show! And Independence Day show too!
This week's episode of HWYW features two lovely ladies who like cats a lot. KAT DENNINGS is here to lend her charm, vim, smarts, wit and general all-over appeal to the proceedings! Join the fabulous Kat as she tells Julie about the disturbing art in her mom's foyer, getting the Norovirus in France, what it's like to own a haunted piano, why her boyfriend calls her "Richard Lewis," and how THIS VERY PODCAST kept her company overseas!
Also, CHIARA ATIK is here to explain what dating is! She writes about dating for HowAboutWe.com and wrote a book, and she shares with us a story about a horror date at Starbucks, a definition of the term taco-crawl, a theory about why celebrities enjoy going to SLEEP NO MORE, and whether you should text, call or email the person you're sleeping with when various circumstances arise.
Plus: A premature eulogy for the Nicholson of the TV age, an out-loud musing about whether I should excercise more, a strong judgment against adventure in general, some pre-Newsroom Season 2 man-ticipation, and an introduction to a new character named Kathy. She dates online!
Enjoy this episode.
How do you do? This week's episode of HOW WAS YOUR WEEK features HARRIS WITTELS, a funny person you enjoy from his work on Parks & Recreation and on his Phish-themed Earwolf podcast. Harris and Julie have a good time meeting each other for the first time in person and talking about drugs and why Harris does them and how, masturbating at a slumber party with friends in a room, and the folly of rivalry with a man who is basically your comedy brother.
Then, author BENJAMIN NUGENT joins us to talk about his fascinating non-fiction book, AMERICAN NERD, and his new novel, GOOD KIDS. This is an interesting conversation, I swear! Topics covered include: the time people in Wiliamsburg thought it was a good idea to snort VCR head cleaner, the subconscious racism of our perception of nerds in this country, the history of the Boy Scouts, and whether it's a better goal to think more about the parent you do not necessarily identify with.
Also! Some strong feelings about Neil LaBute, some Tony Award fashion observations, a celebration of Panera Bread's cookies, concern and appreciation for Millennial sex attitudes, a command concerning women and eyeliner in the summer months, and a bold taking of sides in the Franzen versus Cats debacle. Hooray, hooray, a podcast for you today!
Ahoy! This week's episode of HWYW features two lovely lady guests and their lady lumps.
First, Twitter sensation and very funny comedian SHELBY FERO is here to talk to Julie about being 19, growing up with the Internet, emulating Mike Birbiglia, and whether or not her Grandpa is gay.
Then, cabaret superstar BRIDGET EVERETT joins us to talk about what her mom calls breasts, the time Richard Simmons came to her work, how French swimmers are in bed, and what position she plays on her softball team.
Plus--a visceral reaction to hearing about the "Red Weddings" episode of "Games of Thrones"! What we now think about when we think about Michael Douglas! The inevitable consequences of being Sting's daughter! And a silly scene from the Kardashian show, recapped for your pleasure.
A summery sensation of a show for you! Enjoy it
