In a show that's all in the family, filmmaker Maya Forbes and her sister China Forbes (of Pink Martini fame) chat about Maya's autobiographical film, Infinitely Polar Bear, Luke talks family values in a surprisingly poignant discussion with Portland juggalo Dusty Ramone, and Blitzen Trapper plays tunes from their newest record All Across This Land before leaving on tour...all across this land.

Maya Forbes
An Emmy-nominated writer and producer (The Larry Sanders Show), Forbes wrote and directed Infinitely Polar Bear, an autobiographical film about growing up in Cambridge, MA with her sister China (of the band Pink Martini) and her bipolar father. The film stars Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana.

China Forbes
The lead singer for Pink Martini and a solo singer, China wrote the song The Northern Line for the Infinitely Polar Bear soundtrack.

Blitzen Trapper
Joining the show right before leaving on a nationwide, 33-stop tour, this experimental country/folk/pop ensemble is now releasing their eighth album, VII on Vagrant Records.
