Hustler: Porn, Politics, and Progress? Michael Lee Nirenberg in Interview

In People of Shambhala’s latest podcast, we speak with independent movie director Michael Lee Nirenberg about his Back Issues: The Hustler Magazine Story. The controversial documentary, exploring the curious characters and anarchy behind the rise of the porn magazine, was released in the USA in 2013, and last week (May 26) — through Solo Media — in the United Kingdom, where it is now available on View On Demand.

Among the subjects covered are:

Hustler‘s anti-corporate ads (attacking cigarettes and alcohol companies, among others)
Hustler‘s First Amendment battle
The shooting of Hustler owner and publisher Larry Flynt
Hustler‘s “Punk” attitude
Porn and politics
Porn and copyright in the internet age
