Due to a series of technical aberrations (including, at one point, no sound!), we are bringing you last Thursday’s podcast today. But that doesn’t mean by any means that it’s lost any of its pith and vinegar. For example, right off the bat James describes Reed Seligman, one of the Duke University students unfairly charged with rape, as “a hot younger version of Robert Chambers – remember how we all loved Robert Chambers?” We might be living now in a post-Imus age; should we be afraid to speak? Rosie. The media’s descent on the Virginia Tech campus. Discussion. James describes to Randy and Steven the story of Cho Seung-Hui’s disturbing play, which he read online. (“A howl from the soul!” – James St. James, WOW podcast.) The deaths of Kitty Carlisle Hart and Pat Buckley. Sons of Hollywood: Tori Spelling and Mimi LaRue’s wide-set vagina. Randy, Candy. American Idol. Sanjaya. Blake. LeKisha. Melinda. Randy says he heard that Larry Birkhead is gay, and James freaks in disbelief. “They’re coming out of the woodwork,” says Randy. David Beckham’s nude photo is debunked, dismissed. James wonders, if there had been reality shows back in the ’60s, whether Jackie Kennedy and Babe Paley, say, would have participated and been exposed as “brats acting like assholes,” as Nicole and Paris have been today. Fenton calls from Cannes, where Perez is internationally loved, according to Fenton. “Everyone’s trying to do greeeeen,” he says through the speakerphone. Doomsday? James mentions the “little LA literary scene” party he attended. Rumor is, says Fenton regarding the William and Kate split, that the queen doesn’t like Middleton’s mother. The Tudors. After Lost‘s season finale, says James, the show won’t be back until January 2008. The WOW podcast, however, will be back later this week.
