Easter Dog, Feckit, Paul Williams, and Microaggressions



E110 – Easter afternoon we took the podcast for a walk on the dog trail. Are you into Jesus?! We talk traditions in our house, and the hunt for the golden egg brings up the trophy-for-all discussion. Hear Juls’ hot take on overconfident kids and practical parenting. We’re interrupted by dog fight drama, but Weens quickly channels her Cesar Milan-style advice. We discuss the changing dynamic of our sisterhood and how the little sis is now teaching the big sis. This ties into Joelle’s new favorite idea: The Feck It Fifties complete with a Feckit List, because life is short, who cares what people think, and family is important! In an Ishtar segue, we talk about songwriter, actor, Grammy winner Paul Williams and what happened when Mom and Julianne stayed at his house! We get into Weens’ sociology and psychology studies and learn about microaggressions, schemas, and body language to quickly size a person up. Hot example is Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s paparazzi scuffle back in the day, so of course Joelle paid attention! This also reminds us of the 4-part Showtime series “Love Fraud” about a real hunt for a dirt bag narcissist. Talk about microaggressions! Enjoy an awkward double hello with neighbors in a very “Curb Your Enthusiasm” tinkle moment, and be sure to follow and subscribe everywhere you can find our podcast!

I Called My Ex and Have a Story



E108 – Joelle fights fashion but wonders if she’s missing the shopping gene. Julianne reports on our NYC Screenwriting Challenge and explains her method for writing scripts. It’s been a fun collective effort with us, Derek and Keith of Pop Up Film Cast, and Phil Rood of The Picture Show with Austin and Phil Rood. There is some scolding about being late, a story about compost, and the time Juls met Mouse’s crush Chris Martin, the Coldplay front man. Then the main course: we hear interviews with three of Weens’ ex boyfriends! Now all good friends, Dave, Matt, and Blake tell their funny quintessential Julianne stories including Mexican pet stores, wild horses in elusive Idaho, Valentine’s Day mind-reading, apartment sax, and film school projects including frogs and nudity. It’s a fun one and we give big thanks to these guys and their SO’s! ~Please be sure to spread the word and share this episode with your friends. It’s the best way to help us grow! Thanks!~

The Fun Episode



E102 – We just let it flow in this one and laugh way too much! Subjects include the new verb ‘to wife’, honking practice, strategically placed jewelry, and Hollywood occult workouts with our past guest, good witch, psychic, and recent tv star Patti Negri. Joelle compares rocker ex-boyfriends to The Lost Boys and we segue into Covid-19 and checking in on each others’ mental state about it all. Our Celebrity Stories That Go Nowhere segment pops up, and Julianne tells us her story about actor Michael Shannon and the legendary Joan Jett. Speedo talk reminds us of Jon Hamm, and Weens shares a story about a sighting at the Upright Citizens Brigade, along with Bradley Cooper and many other well-known comedians. At Dynasty Typewriter, we reminisce about seeing the all-women’s improv troupe Wild Horses with Lauren Lapkus and Mark Duplass and liken it to Julianne’s Don Johnson elevator ask. An odd phrase brings up our Leakest Wink story so we explain that favorite scene. Are we alone in thinking this is hilarious, along with Trump’s White House exit? Please write in! Speaking of dudes that are sociopathic and think they’re above the law, Julianne shares her documentary deep dive into the cult worlds of R. Kelly and Keith Raniere. But we end on the high note of hot memories in fa la la llama pjs and bears on a picnic underwear. Thank you to all of our listeners and patrons and if you enjoyed this episode, please share with your friends!

Steve Ferrone, Drummer of Tom Petty, Duran Duran, Clapton & More



E101 – We had the honor of interviewing esteemed jazz, rock, and R&B drummer Steve Ferrone. You have definitely heard his work – just look at this bio below. In this recording, he gets candid about love, family, dalliances, the rock and roll lifestyle, and explains some life changes he has made for the better. We learn about the mods and rockers of Brighton Beach in the 60’s and how Steve’s first blues band opened for The Who. Steve and Julianne talk shop regarding syncopation and style – Pretty Purdie, Steve Gadd, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. When asked about nerves, traveling, and groupies, we heard some funny, surprising stories! Duran Duran played a big role during Stephen’s busiest year, when he also played with George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and was in the Saturday Night Live band. We figured out the connection between Questlove and Average White Band. And Julianne’s Unchained questions inspire a great Johnny Cash impression! Find out which soap opera Steve was in, which musicians and moments rendered him star-struck, including recalling what it was like to record at Abbey Road. We also hear the amazing story of Prince performing George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” during his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fans of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers wrote in some questions, so we find out about a reunion, conflict, grief, what life was really like in the band, and insight into the person that Tom Petty was.

Steve has played with Average White Band, Chaka Khan, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Duran Duran, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Whitney Houston, Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Dire Straits, Aerosmith, Morrissey-Mullen, Bee Gees, Cyndi Lauper, Bette Midler, Stevie Nicks, Paul Simon, Steve Winwood, Tracey Chapman, Mick Jagger, George Benson, Peter Frampton, Anita Baker, Bryan Ferry, Rick James, Slash, Scritti Politti, Pooh and more.

She makes time for us between her stand-up shows and Facebook Live daily readings to tell us fascinating stories about growing up in Hollywood in the wild 1960’s and 70’s in a showbiz family. Hear what her family connections were to the fabulous Liberace and Debbie Reynolds, what it was like to live in the Chateau Marmont, and other mini tales from her book “Confessions of a Prairie Bitch: How I Survived Nellie Oleson and Learned to Love Being Hated”. We hear what it was like to be a child actor at that time in Los Angeles and how her auditions in front of Michael Landon went before she earned the part of Nasty Nellie! Some listener Q&A’s reveal if her tv mother Mrs. Harriet Oleson, played by Katherine MacGregor, was really as mean as she played on the show, and how Alison’s real-life friends and fans treated her in public. Find out what she and co-star Melissa Gilbert, who played Laura Ingalls Wilder, are up to during the quarantine, and why she thinks all things “Little House” are having the resurgence and relevance they are today.

Going Crazy, Near Death, Comedy & Celebrities



E82 – Anyone else going nuts? Julianne talks about the film industry shutdown and then Joelle tells a wild, near death story that happened to her and the kids, all started by being stuck at home and going sort of crazy. Ok, maybe that’s being dramatic. But Weens gets into real Near Death Experiences and talks of speaker and author Nancy Rynes who died twice and came back to talk about it. NDE’s are fascinating and people can learn great lessons from them. Hey, what’s keeping us busy? Summer camp, distant get togethers, planning a documentary!, and lots of comedy, including talk of actress and comic Martha Kelly from Baskets and an awkward family Don’t Mess With the Zohan moment! Parenting is stressful, but Mouse is trying to teach kids important lessons like black lives matter, especially in a city that is dealing with racism. What can you do as a parent to help when everyone is locked down and you feel helpless about activism? Get people to vote with PostcardsToVoters.org! We do lots of name-dropping throughout this episode especially in our ‘Celebrity Stories That Go Nowhere’ segment, so listen for Adam Sandler, Carol Channing, Woody Allen, George Wendt, Will Ferrell, Kid Rock, Gabriel Byrne, Michael Landon, Nellie Oleson, Alison Arngrim, Joe and Kevin Jonas, Anita Moorjani, Ethel Merman, Katherine Hepburn, and Zach Galifinakis mentions.
