Episode 157: Female Trouble (1974)

Special Guest: Mink Stole

Just in time for International Women's Day, we'll be looking at John Waters's Female Trouble. The 1974 film from the bard of Baltimore stars Divine as Dawn Davenport, a juvenile delinquent who runs into a fashionable crowd that believes crime increases your beauty. Following the birth of Dawn’s daughter, Taffy (played by Mink Stole), her crazy, criminal ways continue to grow thanks to the flash bulbs and mainlining liquid eyeliner. So, get out your cha-cha heels and enjoy our discussion of the film with its star Mink Stole.

Joining us as special guest co-host is Mars One finalist and Detroit area jam maven Juniper Moore.

  1. I am beyond excited to hear this episode! I love John Waters and especially love FEMALE TROUBLE - the first 15 minutes or so represent his finest work to me. And Mink Stole is terrific (I did her kickstarter for her record) so kudos on getting her as a guest - now I better get them cha-cha heels!!!

    1. YES!

      Thanks for stopping by and giving your feedback. Let us know what you think after you listen. Also, share the show with others - help spread the gospel.

      I think you'll dig the Mink interview - so good and great stuff you probably haven't heard before.
