This week the podcast returns to John Waters as Lee and Leah cover his first and only PG-rated film, "Hairspray" (1988). Does this switch to a more professional and toned-down style hurt Waters' message, or does it just force him to be more creative about how to continue to be over-the-top and subversive in a mainstream production? How does the 2007 adaptation of the "Hairspray" musical match-up? How bloody great was Divine in her final film with Waters? How good was Ricki Lake in her first big role? How do elements of this film connect to an old PSA star Sonny Bono was in? Ric Ocasek and Pia Zadora as beatniks? A lot of the conversation also hits on Drag culture and Divine being a Drag icon still to this day. The hosts also talk about what they've watched as of late. No matter if your a hair-hopper or a weed-smoking beatnik, you're welcome to get naked with us and come listen!
Featured Music: "Mama Didn't Lie" by Jan Bradley & "Hairspray" by Rachel Sweet.
