It’s always fascinating to be a small piece of an enormous work, such as This is Reading. For months, you hear bits and bobs about the grand scheme but focus only on your tiny piece. This past weekend, we saw it all come together at Franklin Street Station.
This fourth episode in the Civilians’ “Sex Variants” podcast series — recorded live at Joe’s Pub in NYC — concludes our look at the work of pioneering sex researcher Dr. George W. Henry. Throughout the series, Trey Lyford portrays Dr. Henry. Here, Max Vernon sings a song he wrote based on one of Dr. Henry’s subjects, Nedra McClyde portrays a vaudeville comedian who participated in the study, and Marykate O’Neil sings a song that Jill Sobule wrote called “Odd Girl Out.”
Many thanks to everyone involved in this project, including contributors Ian Daniel, Joel Glassman, Amina Henry, Leicester Landon, and Benjamin Viertel.
