The late Nora Ephorn was one of the funniest writers in the history of the romantic comedy and personal memoir. Arianna Huffington is a self-made media mogul and frequent columnist. Gail Saltz is a professor of psychiatry and frequent sex and advice contributor to many forums. These are three very successful women.
A few years ago, they got together at the acclaimed 92nd Street Y in New York City to discuss aging, work, love, biography, and the pursuit of success. This breezy listen is filled with gems, including Ephron’s quip that her mother successfully raised "four kids who were all able to pay for their own psychoanalysis". This audiobook is like a brainier The View.
Arianna Huffington is a syndicated columnist and the author of 10 books, the most recent of which is On Becoming Fearless: Advice for Women. Nora Ephron's books include Heartburn. Her most recent book is I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman. Moderator Dr. Gail Saltz, a regular contributor to NBC's Today, is an associate professor of psychiatry at New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical College. Her latest book is Anatomy of a Secret Life: The Psychology of Living a Lie.

I enjoy the idea of listening to two strong women in conversation. Ephron I'd already fallen in love with, particularly her set of essays in Crazy Salad, though her other books, both as audio or on the page, are amazing. Huffington I managed to not know a great deal about, which is interesting given how much her journal pops into my Facebook feed. I'm grateful to these women, who are bold and honest, and I'm also glad that Ephron doesn't really care about shoes. And that two powerful women can forge a friendship that people want to listen to stories about.
"Love these two"
I think this is quite an old interview now, but nice to listen to if you're a fan. I love them both :)
