Ep. 54: "The Crunch Factor": Rickie Lee Jones, Kambri Crews
On this episode of HWYW, music legend RICKIE LEE JONES talks to Julie about the messages girls can get from billboards, the barbed blessing of working with a producer whose opinion you trust, and her horse, Cinderella. What a treat to chat with Ms. Jones! This is a huge deal.
Then, author KAMBRI CREWS is here to discuss her fascinating new memoir, BURN DOWN THE GROUND. Kambri is the daughter of two deaf adults, and her dad is currently incarcerated in a Texas prison. It goes without saying that Kambri has a story to tell that is absolutely unique, compelling and heartfelt. A must-listen interview about a must-read book!
I also have to mention that there's a pretty incredible connection between Kambri and Rickie because Kambri, as she mentions in her interview, used to work at Chuck E. Cheese. And of course, I was therefore tempted to title this episode "Chuck E. Cheese's in Love." I would appreciate you praising my restraint.
Plus, Julie devises a theory about Stephen King's writing process, summarizes the "Cat Food Lady" episode of MY STRANGE ADDICTION, pitches the Vern-cast, comtemplates the process of putting tights over recently lotioned legs and compares it to putting wax over cheese, and happily closes the coffin on "Slut-shaming culture," sending it off with a rather disgusting anecdote about the jerk who hosts SOUNDCHECK.
Also, the seductive quality of a certain volume of the encyclopedia! Yet another stupid thing to say about a stranger's dog! And an exciting announcement about our LA show with Patton Oswalt, Katie Notopoulos & Ted Leo and his all-star band on March 29th!
A show that is neither to be missed nor to be underestimated!
