You may get a chuckle from this podcast, but an explanation is in order: It is an interview by two friends of Barbara's daughter, now in California, who have developed comedic characters who have a large following – Beverly and Ronna, crass 50ish Jewish matrons from the Boston area. (They are actually in their 30s and bright hip women.) The interview was ostensibly about the book, but the interviewers, in character, took off in several directions - although they did a big plug for the book at the end, and the book is mentioned throughout. So here is a link to the podcast. You can advance to minute 13 where the interview begins. The first part is “Bev” and “Ronna” having an inane discussion. Listen
