Interview with a legend

Comedian Phill Jupitus secures a rare interview Garry Trudeau, the reclusive creator of the Doonesbury cartoon. LISTEN HERE

This programme was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Tuesday 7 October, 2008.

American political cartoonists; An endangered species., down from 200 to barely 80 in the last few decades. Save this art form, write your local newspaper editor and tell them that you not only want them to carry editorial cartoons, but you think they should have their own local cartoonist. Don't let them die out the same way the polar bears are!

Anyone who really cares about me will at least buy me a copy of the new Trudeau biography, 'Garry Trudeau: Doonesbury and the Aesthetics of Satire' for Christmas, pleeeease?!
