On today's show:


Today's special membership drive edition of The Frame is devoted entirely to John Horn's interview with singer/songwriter Liz Phair. She burst onto the scene in 1993 with her debut album, “Exile in Guyville," and became a darling of the indie rock scene. Now she has a new memoir, "Horror Stories," in which she reflects on death, sex, motherhood and misogyny. She talks with John about how being sexually frank in her lyrics was just one part of her identity, but that one thing came to define her.
