Marilu Henner (Taxi, Evening Shade, Grease, Chicago) and I talk a mile a minute about EVERYTHING, from her incredible memory (it's called HSAM, or highly superior autobiographical memory) to party games to family to dating John Travolta and a few Taxi co-stars.

Emmy-winning actor Peter Scolari, who won an Emmy for HBO's Girls, died on Friday morning. This is my very deep talk with Peter, which we had in October 2017. I hope you enjoy it. I didn't know him well, but in the hour or two I spent with him I could feel that he was a warm, emotional, caring person. I think you'll feel the same. Peter and I talk about everything from Bosom Buddies to Newhart and Madoff. He opens up about drugs and alcohol, depression and learning he has bipolar disorder....
