Host Kerry Diamond talks to Julia’s Fiona Glascott, who plays Judith, and Judith Light, who plays Judith’s boss, the imperious Blanche Knopf. In the second half of the show, Francis Lam, cookbook expert, editor in chief of Clarkson Potter, and host of The Splendid Table, talks about the realities of being an editor today.
