How Was Your Week: Episode 115
“Madame, No”: David Sedaris
Holy Crap! DAVID SEDARIS is on this episode!!!!!!!
Oh, hello. Sorry. I just got right into it, didn’t I. Anyway. This episode of How Was Your Week is so exciting, none of us can handle it.
As mentioned, DAVID SEDARIS is on the show to discuss his new book LET’S EXPLORE DIABETES WITH OWLS, and to surprise Julie with the revelation that HE has questions for HER! That’s right! David Sedaris is a fan of this very podcast! I know. I know. So, once that fact is dealt or not dealt with, David and Julie have lots to talk about. Eating steak during signings, renting cats with poopy butts, reading books about pederasty, writing about doing it, and having the good fortune to be friends with David Rakoff.
Also: Julie counts down to the Liberace movie, contemplates the new crop of network shows, briefly mourns Dr. Joyce Brothers, explains the source of her recent panic attack, speculates about Al Pacino’s headspace, and directs young men who wish to be sexy toward Don Draper’s hotel room shenanigans.
BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY! DAVID SEDARIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
