On the Road with John Waters

August 25, 2014

Hour Two

Guest: John Waters

[From the Radio Times archive] If you saw filmmaker JOHN WATERS on the side of the road hitchhiking, would you pick him up? Well lots of people did when Waters traveled across America – from Baltimore to San Francisco — in the spring of 2012. They included an 81-year old farmer, a small-town mayor, an indie rock band and other ordinary folks who were sometimes weird, generous and kind. Waters has chronicled his adventures and insights in a new book, Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America. Marty sat down with Waters this June to discuss his new book.
