How Was Your Week: Episode 116
“The Human Condition on DirectTV”: Emily Bazelon, Abbi Crutchfield
Welcome! This week’s episode of HWYW features an interview with EMILY BAZELON, the author of STICKS AND STONES: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. Enjoy Emily’s brain as she engages with Julie on the topics of growing up with the internet, commenter culture, what Facebook could be doing to protect kids, and how empathy is taught in schools.
Then, comedienne ABBI CRUTCHFIELD joins Julie to tell her about the Pink Collar Comedy Tour, what it was like modeling for a socialite in her community when she was a teen, coming to comedy from a place of wanting to make people happy, and what her mom texts her.
Also! Julie is IN LOS ANGELES AND FEELS FAT! Quit talking about Oklahoma, CNN! This is the REAL tragic breaking news. Boi-yoi-yoi-yoing. In all seriousness, please give in hefty amounts to the Red Cross.
Plus: a confession about Daft Punk and not knowing what they are, a harrowing experience in the Glendale Galleria, Julie’s hunch about Joe Francis’s literary inclinations, reminiscin” about dishwashing liquid, and some serious concerns about Gary Sinise’s memorial day and whether we can help make it his best one ever.
What a show!
Chris is joined by actress and comedian Abbi Crutchfield. They talk about new technology, diversity in show business, and striving for excellence.
