Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock in The Heat (Gemma La Mana)

"Women on a poster is like poison to men because they go, 'Oh, it’s going to be one of those movies'." — Paul Feig

This week in Studio 360, some anxiety about money. The makers of the lady-buddy-cop movie The Heat are feeling the heat to match the success of Bridesmaids, or Hollywood’s women will get sent back to the rom-coms. And an indie-rock veteran puts his reputation on the line to complain publicly about his Pandora royalties; will he become the next Lars Ulrich? Eric Fischl paints the traumas of his childhood in full color, and the band Hem sings an ode to a Superfund site.

Studio 360, Saturday at 2 p.m. on NPR 89.1FM/1550 AM
