Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin has divided critics and audiences, but it looks like all is going according to plan. ‘If it causes an argument between a husband and a wife, it’s done its job,” Glazer tells Studio 360’s Kurt Andersen.

Mission accomplished: Kurt and his wife disagreed about it all the way home from a screening.

Listen to Studio 360’s interview with Glazer:

Sarah Jessica Parker was the guest host for Leonard Lopate this week! 
She talked to Ashley Bouder and Sara Mearns, principal dancers with the New York City Ballet, about the demands and rewards  of dancing. (Did you know that SJP is a former ballet dancer?)
One time back in 2010, Christopher Walken filled in for Leonard Lopate as guest host. It was a riot.

As the governor of Texas, Ann Richards (pictured left here) appointed more women, openly gay people, and people of color than all of her predecessors combined. We talked to her daughter Cecile Richards today about the legacy her mother left and about the new HBO documentary, ALL ABOUT ANN.
