“Humor writer and actress Julie Klausner has added podcasting to her resume with her new show How Was Your Week?, a low-key, chatty show that should appeal to smart people who like talking about relatively silly things, such as Johnny Depp’s increasing levels of pretentiousness or the shady history of McDonaldland characters. Klausner’s guests are her friends, who either run in entertainment circles or share her passion for pop culture. This week, Jesse Murray visits to discuss the top five films set in New York (a much less pretentious list of movies than you’d probably expect with a title like that) and actor Anthony Atamanuik comes by to talk about his experience as a diner on Top Chef Masters. For those who enjoy pop culture but don’t take it too seriously, Klausner’s podcast may have listeners nodding in agreement and wishing they could join the conversation.”—Week of March 17-23 | TV | Podmass | The A.V.
