Listeners respond: role models who inspire

The World

Filmmaker John Waters joined the show to talk about his new book, ‘Role Models.’ And we’ve been hearing from listeners in response. Who inspired our listeners? Everyone from artists to daughters to John Waters, himself. Angel from Miami writes:

“Indiana Jones. Yeah, a fictional character, and flawed: tumultous relatonships with women, an outsider, a bit self-righteous. But he always fought to keep things of value out of the hands of morally-bankrupt men and would sacrifice those same things for people in need. He constantly faced darkness without succumbing to it.”
