Episode 152: Laurie Anderson

laurie Life is constructed from the stories we tell, suggests this splendid musician, film-maker (and more). “What else is there but stories?” she asks. “Well,” I reply geriatrically, “there’s the truth.” Or is there? She has a more nuanced view (or perhaps just a darker one). A conversation about myth-making, with side trips to the Venice ghetto, ancient Greece, and Reading, PA. Plus terrific music from the Villalobos brothers – Alberto, Ernesto and Luis – with Sergio Ramirez. And somebody makes dog sounds in three registers – hint, not me – at JCC Manhattan.
