Thinking Aloud
A Look at Garry Troudeau's Doonesbury
BYU scholar Kerry Soper rejoins us for another conversation on cartooning and caricature, but this time he's brought his new book, Garry Trudeau: Doonesbury and the Aesthetics of Satire. "I've always thought that my main contribution to the comics page," says Garry Trudeau, "was that I made it safe for bad drawing." Soper is here, in part, to explain how a very bad cartoonist can be such a very good cartoonist as we talk about the social importance of Garry Trudeau. —Original airdate: 9/25/2008
