This week's show is all about crime: author Sue Grafton had never tried to write a mystery before “A Is for Alibi,” the first novel in her Kinsey Millhone series. Now that she’s on “X,” she’s getting ready for a well-deserved party. And we hear from Joshua Oppenheimer, director of the documentaries “The Act of Killing” and “The Look of Silence,” two films about a genocide whose perpetrators were surprisingly proud of their work. And one of the world’s most prolific art forgers can’t be prosecuted, because he never accepted a penny for his fakes. (Segments in this week's show aired previously.)
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
