Filmmaker John Waters on the role of artists in a politically tumultuous era.

Tweet This

The boundary-breaking films of John Waters have inspired a generation of artists to think outside the mainstream. He’s toured extensively with his one-man shows, sounding off on politics, religion, sex, fashion, and more. Listen to Waters talk with WDET’s Amanda LeClaire about the role of artists in this era of political turbulence. 

There are only a few tickets left for A John Waters Birthday at El Club in Detroit on April 22.
