This satirical comedy podcast will release one 10-15 minute episode per day beginning on October 29. Listeners will follow Felicity's two weeks behind bars via the cell phone she has smuggled into prison with her. Through phone conversations (strategy calls with her agent and manager: "We're gonna Orange-is-the-New-Black this!"), voice memos (notes for the memoir that will be her big comeback) and voicemails (her lawyer repeatedly telling her to please get rid of her phone), we will listen along as Felicity desperately tries to keep it together. We'll hear from her esteemed husband William H. Macy, her mortified daughters, Sophia and Georgia, and a whole host of familiar figures ranging from Martha Stewart to Lindsay Lohan. With two weeks and nothing to do but reflect, 14 Days with Felicity is a car crash in audio form, as Ms. Huffman strives to do her time, learn a thing or two, and leave prison as a better woman.
