Julie and Julia

Anya and Alan welcome Mandi Kaye Ottaway to talk about the book that changed her life, Julie and Julia: 365 days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen by Julie Powell. Mandi tells us all about how this book inspired her to become the podcasting mogul she is today, her favorite lines from the book, and why the movie is not worth your time.
