Text 25 Mar 8 notes One of the best episodes

Your interview with Karina Longworth was one of my favorite episodes. It was one of the stronger affirmations of why I always look forward to listening to your podcasts every week. That NYT article couldn’t be any truer.

Her literate sensibility and affection for showmanship are reminders of an era when “nerd” connoted smart more than obsessive…”

girlgonepostal asked: I thank my older brother for giving me your book, "I don't care about your band". It came to me at a time of my life where I began to truly understood what awful garbage young men are in college. Anyway, I finally came upon your podcast and I absolutely adore it. Thank you for being amazing.

Thank YOU!! xoxo

emilypdunne asked: Hi Julie! I recently had a dream. I walk dogs on 110th street in central park and there is a really spooky trail (spooky in the sense that it's too much nature.) In my dream, I was doing the Frankie Teardrop Challenge and turned the corner BOO!- JULIE KLAUSNER! You were also attempting the feat. I actually tried the challenge later that week, but had to bust out running out of the park because there was a naked homeless guy in the middle of the park. Moral: don't do the F.T.C. in Central Park.

This is a gorgeous story and it should override the story of the Central Park Five.

Here is a screenshot from the documentary THIS EMOTIONAL LIFE, in which cartoonist Roz Chast appears to have been amputated below the waist. I will be discussing this image at length in the special episode of How Was Your Week that will be coming out later today called HOW WAS YOUR STORM. Thank you.
