Julie is Brills
Julie is one of the funniest people doing funny stuff for a living. Shes bright, subversive while being straightforward. Got to see her at UCB a couple years ago. Also tune into her calls into The Best Show on WFMU 91.1 FM. Great podcast. Laughed aloud at her description of Geoffrey Rush and the King's Speech. Too much.
As an affixionadio of podcasts- been listening since the very early days- trust me when I say that this one is a keeper. Top drawer, top shelf, whatever. No low-brow dick jokes. And, the music behind the voice is appropriate, and the levels are right, so anyone who doesn't like it should take a deep breath and calm down before throwing the baby out with the bathwater! Keep it up.
Please do not hesitate to clown Anthony Bourdain.
