How Was Your Week: Episode 112
“Wesleyan As A Human Being”: Rachel Lichtman, Jena Friedman
Good day, sir. This week’s episode of HWYW begins with a meditation on God, and ends with a plug for a cabaret show. In between, Julie speaks to the hilarious and brilliant RACHEL “DJ ROTARY RACHEL” LICHTMAN about The Monkees, how Baby Boomers ruin everything, the counterintuitive artifice of The Ramones, and whether the retro cycle is broken. Oh, and also Rachel imitates Joe Pesci’s Bee-Gee’s cover, and that is just perfect.
Then, comedian JENA FRIEDMAN joins us to discuss preceisely how Long Island she is, how AIDS shaped her hook-up patterns, her attitude toward small dogs, and the anatomy of the New Jersey Devil.
Plus—the guilty part of the female brain! Whether super foods can adequately supplement eating off the children’s menu! Fleetwood Mac’s medicinal properties! And a LOT of talk about Amanda Palmer and whether she can possibly be for real.
A fun and frenetic show!
