Guest host Molly Ringwald sits in for Kurt Andersen this week. She interviews author Lauren Groff, whose novel “Fates and Furies” tells the story of a marriage twice — once from each spouse’s perspective. And boy, their versions do diverge. Then, we hear a live performance from the cabaret legends Kiki and Herb, the characters brought to life by Justin Vivian Bond and Kenny Mellman. They’ve been on hiatus for almost a decade, but they haven’t mellowed a bit.
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.
