209 – An Exercise in Poor Taste: The Abject Art of John Waters

[Heads up: This episode will discuss some taboo topics that may not be suitable for all ears — listener discretion is advised!]

Part two of DIVINE DECEMBER continues with an exploration into the filmography of John Waters, the filmmaker, artist, author, and actor. The self-described “People’s Pervert” has had a very long [and filthy] career, and Julia attempts to discuss it through the lens of abject art. Have no fear– later, take a quiz called “Good, Clean Fun!”
