This feature—a question-and-answer session with a person from sports/entertainment/politics/whatever—will appear every week on jeffpearlman.com. If you have any suggestions/ideas for people to speak with, hit me up at anngold22@gmail.com. I’m listening. Oh, and for the full categorization of every Quaz, click here.

#318 THE QUAZ

Lauren Tom

Her grandmother brought a bag of dried prunes to the premiere of “The Joy Luck Club”—then spent the next two hours loudly spitting out the pits. Against all odds, this veteran character actress survived the embarrassment to piece together a remarkable career in film and television.

#317 THE QUAZ

Dirk Hooper

He started by borrowing a friend’s camera, and now finds himself as one of America’s most sought-after fetish photographers. So what do he and a dominatrix discuss between clicks? Kids, mortgages and Starbucks.

#316 THE QUAZ

Steve Rushin

The world’s best sportswriter has tracked mud into the West Wing and competed in the World Ice Golf Championship. And yet, even with a new memoir out this week, he still can’t resist manifold nacho cheez.

#315 THE QUAZ

Nickolas Wildstar

The Libertarian candidate for California’s governorship insists he has the goods to succeed Jerry Brown. If hair, name and a song in “Scary Movie 4” matter, this man is an absolute lock.

#314 THE QUAZ

Anne Byrn

To many she’s The Cake Mix Doctor—one of America’s finest food scribes and a woman who can transform a handful of chocolate chips and some flour into a dessert masterpiece. To me, she’s the person who somehow once filled my (microscopic, ill-fitted) shoes.

#313 THE QUAZ

Mike Pritchard

He caught 422 passes and 26 touchdowns over nine NFL seasons. Which means this wide receiver can tell you why pro football is worth every second, why college players deserve to be paid and what it was like to play alongside the legendary Itula Mili.
