Episode 145: Patricia Marx

Version 2  We – OK, I – look askance at those who claim to need an emotional-support animal to board an airplane, but we don’t mock those who take Prozac. What’s the difference? Patricia Marx, a staff writer at the New Yorker who has travelled with a support pig (research, not therapy), took up this question when we convened at the Museum at Eldridge Street. Stephanie Jenkins and Stephanie Coleman, the musicians on this episode, arrived piglessly and played wonderfully.
