The king of bad taste director John Waters discusses his new book Make Trouble. We talk about his career in film, some of his inspirations, and why he considers his biggest commercial success to be his most subversive film. John Waters throws cold water on the romanticization of the tortured artist, extols the virtues a healthy work ethic, and suggests that in an age when everyone seems to want to be an outsider, maybe it’s more daring to be an insider. Plus we talk about political correctness, why everyone needs a "youth spy," and the origins of his famous pencil thin moustache.
