Kojo Nnamdi interview

Laurie Anderson was the guest at the Kojo Nnamdi Show on American University Radio WAMU on July 15, 2010. She talked about her first 'artistic' job (i. e. teaching Egyptian art history and making up the gaps in her memory by freeform storytelling), swinging between politics and poetry, the evolution of 'Homeland' from live performance into studio album, audio drag, playing and getting booed MontrĂ©al Jazz Festival, and then she was answering various listeners' questions posed via telephone and the show's online forum, for example providing us with a how-to on making a proper drum suit. Yay!!! And thanks for answering my question, Laurie. :)
