Episode 202 of 730 episodes

Kim Gordon co-founded Sonic Youth with Thurston Moore. When their marriage broke up in 2011, so did the band. Gordon talks about rebuilding her life, writing her memoir, 'Girl in a Band,' and her new band Body/Head. The Vimeo web series 'High Maintenance' centers on a pot dealer who bikes around Brooklyn delivering to clients. Creators Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair say they drew on their experiences and friends' generosity to make the show. Ken Tucker reviews Nora Jane Struthers' album 'Wake,' and David Bianculli checks out the Tina Fey's Netflix series 'The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' and 'American Crime.'
