Inquiry welcomes ED SANDERS, co-founder of the legendary band The Fugs, founder of the Peace Eye Bookstore, writer and filmmaker. His new book, FUG YOU: AN INFORMAL HISTORY OF THE PEACE-EYE BOOKSTORE, THE F**K YOU PRESS, THE FUGS AND COUNTERCULTURE IN THE LOWER EAST SIDE is a personal alternative history of the decade of the Sixties. Tune in tonight and find out about the “mimeograph revolution”, the concept of a “total assault on culture” and of course, how The Fugs were formed.

What is it that makes you feel disgust? Sour milk? Vomit? A disembodied cadaver? Certain bodily fluids? The feeling of disgust is universal but what sets off that feeling of repulsion varies from culture to culture. For instance, many Brits find the smell and flavor of wintergreen horrible, yet Icelanders find putrid fermented Greenland Shark a gourmet delight. Tonight on Inquiry, we welcome back RACHEL HERZ, teacher at Brown University and an expert on the psychology of smell and emotion. Her new book is THAT’S DISGUSTING! UNRAVELING THE MYSTERIES OF REPULSION. Tune in tonight and learn how feeling of disgust change with age, why some people find disgusting things enjoyable and learn about the very complex relationship between disgust and empathy.
