15 Minutes: a podcast about fame, with Jamie Berger


Episode 42 - Julie Klam

Julie Klam is the author of five books whose previous two memoirs have focused on seeing her life through the lens of dogs and dog rescue. Her latest, “The Stars in Our Eyes: The Famous, the Infamous, and Why we care Way Too Much about Them,” is something of a departure, and clearly something 15-Minutes-worthy, to say the least. About the book, Us Weekly writes, “In her eye-opening and humorous collection of essays, Julie Klam explores the fascination with the rich and powerful, while also breaking down the challenges tied to fame and why all this actually matters.” We talked about everything from Patti LuPone’s Flonase addiction (KIDDING about the addiction part, but Mis LuPone and nasal spray do come up), her friend Timothy Hutton, what it’s like to make your first appearance on The Tonight Show, and lots of other juicy stuff! Also, stay tuned at the end for our first 15 Minutes celebrity endorsement! Link to the book trailer with Timothy Hutton we discussed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpuX3hsjegY
