How Was Your Week: Episode 101
“Heavy Things Onto Stages”: David Ozanich, Michael Kupperman
This week’s episode of How Was Your Week is a celebration of friendship, anger and genius. First, Julie introduces you to DAVID OZANICH, a brilliant playwright and dear friend who tragically passed away this week, way too soon. In an interview recorded two years ago, David talks to Julie about his favorite roles of the fabulous Karen Black, and it’s wonderful to hear his voice in the present tense.
Then, hilarious cartoonist MICHAEL KUPPERMAN is here to chat with Julie about their post-9/11 friendship, his landscaping shenanigans, a cartoon about Humpty Dumpty, and an encounter with Peter Tork.
Also: A call to cancel SMASH! A tirade against CATFISH: THE TV SHOW and Jenny McCarthy! A plea for understanding in the realm of errant rage in the face of grief! And whether THE SHINING would have been better if Karen Black were in it instead of Shelley Duvall.
Thank you for dealing with my emotions this week. I hope this show brings you some joy and insight. Life is short, love your friends like it’s your job.
