"I haven't changed," John Waters tells Stephen Schaefer. "The American public has gotten a better sense of humor." Hear more on this and A Dirty Shame, Waters' movie about a Baltimore neighborhood that becomes a battleground between a gang of sex addicts and a bunch of "neuters." Listen close as the director speaks of the realities of financing and casting, how Broadway's adaptations of his movies work for him ("Hairspray gave me a passive income for the first time in my life"), and how Hollywood found its way into his traveling retrospective, John Waters: Change of Life.
