AudioFiles: In & Out
This week’s show was inspired by the film In & Out, the 1997 movie about a man in denial about his sexuality. We talk to actor Kevin Kline about what that film meant to him.
We have stories about people in flux, high school dropouts, the politics of banks and plastic bags, and what’s trending in tech.
Lafayette Stokely joins us for a live set in the studio and Andrew Hawkins, a politics and business reporter of Crain’s New York drops by for a live Q+A.
Producer: Sarah Barrett
Host: Steve Trader
