10/4/2007: Paula Poundstone

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – When Paula Poundstone describes Joan of Arc as "called by God and driven to drink," there's a natural segue to the comedian's own battle with alcoholism. In her latest book, Poundstone faces her life head-on by looking at the lives of seven historical figures. Paula Poundstone will perform this weekend in Salt Lake City, and Thursday she joins Doug to talk about comedy, public radio and rebuilding a life.
