Listen 00:48:46

Guests: Lynn Sherr, John Waters, Alison Bechdel

On today’s show, the weather is getting warmer and that means it’s time to go swimming! We’ll hear about Americans passion for submersion when we listen to Marty’s interview with LYNN SHERR, author of Swim: Why We Love the Water. Then, we’ll listen to Marty’s conversation with provocateur JOHN WATERS. He joined us last year to discuss his hitchhiking adventure book Carsick, which has just been released in paperback. We’ll also hear from cartoonist ALISON BECHDEL. A Broadway musical based on her graphic memoir Fun Home recently had its New York premier.
