This week on the Pop Life Podcast with Richard Crouse we meet best selling author Darin Strauss. “The Queen of Tuesday,” about Lucille Ball, a thrilling love story starring Hollywood’s first true media mogul, it’s Strauss’s follow-up to the National Book Critics Circle Award winner “Half a Life,” mixes fact and fiction, memoir and novel, to imagine the provocative story of a woman we thought we knew.
Then we ask the Pop Life panel, stand up comedian Debra DiGiovanni, Second City alum Darryl Hinds and Just for Laughs co-founder Andy Nulman, to discuss influences in comedy.
