Biz and Theresa open old wounds and share some of our most mortifying moments from childhood! We wonder how these experiences will come into play when our own kids inevitably experience embarrassing moments of their own. Plus, Biz hangs ten, Theresa watches it all go down the drain, and we talk to Catherine Newman about her new memoir Catastrophic Happiness: Finding Joy In Childhood’s Messy Years.

Nick Hornby became famous as a literary writer for men. His first three books were about guys, fans specifically, Fever Pitch was a memoir about Hornby’s love of soccer; High Fidelity was about a record store owner, struggling with love. About A Boy was about a sort of boyish man tending to a mannish boy.
Hornby has since written several other books and screenplays, including Oscar nominees An Education and Brooklyn.
His recent novel, Funny Girl, is about a working class young woman in the 1960s who leaves her small town in search of a career on television, and her success on a BBC sitcom.
Nick Hornby sat down with Jesse to talk about why he set his novel in the mid-60s (and why its protagonist is a woman), personal ambition and creativity, and what it's like to be a Hollywood dinner guest.
Funny Girl is available now in paperback.
The interview originally aired in March 2015.
Luis Guzmán is a veteran character actor. But back in the early 1990s, he was still working as a social worker on the Lower East Side, and acting was more of a side gig. Then he got a role that put him on the map -- the thuggish sidekick Pachanga in the 1993 movie Carlito's Way.
As Guzmán tells it, everything crystallized with that role.
You can currently see Luis Guzmán in the role of Jesse Sallander on the CBS hospital drama, Code Black. On the show, he plays the role of the trauma unit’s senior nurse, affectionately referred to as “Momma”.
The interview originally aired in March 2015.
