Bree Housley, author of We Hope You Like This Song: An Overly Honest Story About Friendship, Death, and Mix Tapes, downloads:

How Was Your Week? I wake up every Friday with one goal: download Julie Klausner's podcast, How Was Your Week? Perhaps this makes me sound a bit lazy, but oh man, does she make me laugh.

Whether she's crooning along to Brian McKnight's "Ready to Learn" (look it up, people, so ridiculous) or getting to the bottom of important things with her guests, like why Mrs. Doubtfire holds up to repeat viewings, Julie is like the best friend you've always been jealous of because she's funnier than you. Her guests include fellow writers, comedians, podcasters, and generally interesting people. I loved her memoir, I Don't Care About Your Band, so I'm jazzed that there's a way to have a little conversation with Julie every week. She's funny, bright, and totally redheaded.

Subscribe to How Was Your Week? on iTunes. You won't be sorry . . . though the person sitting next to you on the train might be.
