For the first month of the Rad Carpet Curriculum, we will dive headlong into the bizarre cult universe of John Waters, covering four of the films that preceded the director’s breakout mainstream hit Hairspray (1988).
We would love for you, our dear listeners, to be part of the Rad Carpet film club, watching along with us and unfurling your own takes via this website and social media, so here’s our viewing schedule as it pertains to the podcast discussions:
Week of 5/15 — Multiple Maniacs (1970), Pink Flamingos (1972)
Week of 5/29 — Female Trouble (1975), Desperate Living (1977)
Keep an eye on this site and on Twitter for more details regarding our May 2017 broadcast schedule, as well as for future curriculum calendar updates.
The second part of our year-by-year 1980s review will be posted at the beginning of May. In the meantime, stay rad!
