Just before Seattle Pride Fest, The Stranger columnist and all-around provocateur Dan Savage weighs in on love, sex, marriage, LGBT rights, politics—and anything else that comes up in conversation with Ari Shapiro, NPR’s White House correspondent. From Romney’s 2012 bid for the presidency (Shapiro tailed him for a year for NPR) to DOMA and The Supremes and Sandy Hook, everything is fair game for these two journalists. Savage, author of American Savage, has had a loyal (and local) audience for years, thanks to his syndicated sex-advice column “Savage Love,” but since the incredible success of It Gets Better, his profile has skyrocketed—as has his influence. Presented by Trouble Productions.
