Ep. 84: "Where's Grandpa?": Andrew McCarthy, Frank Conniff
This week's episode of How Was Your Week digs deep, hits rock, then gets out the Sheetrock drill!
First, FRANK CONNIFF is here to talk about Turner Classic Movies, Mystery Science Theater 3000, the title of that new movie where Helen Hunt plays a sexual surrogate, and the scariest part of The Wizard of Oz.
Then, one of Julie's biggest crushes of all time, ANDREW McCARTHY joins her to discuss his new book, The Longest Way Home: One Man's Quest for The Courage To Settle Down. Enjoy this chat about the Amazon and its elixirs, the curse of being known as a Brat Packer no matter what you accomplish, how to be alone when you're away, and what one does when traveling when one is not a food person.
Plus: an overheard remark from a subway putz in regards to what a book is NOT about, how Queen Latifah ruined everything, Tweeting Purina, and what the guy who plays FDR in Annie: The Musical is in store for.
Plus: Mannequin fur coat feelings, what a campaign platform in 1964 might include, and having no idea what the hell Homeland is about.
A show awash in nostalgia and amorous thrills!
