Featured on the October 13th, 2022 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:
- Legendary auteur John Waters seems to have retired from making movies...so he made his latest project Liarmouth a novel. It's a "feel-bad romance", one that may in fact bring him out of retirement to direct - if the mood strikes. John Waters will be in Tucson on October 15th at the Fox Tucson Theatre.

- Bill Plympton has been making cartoons for adults since the early 1970s, filled with political and social observations, and his own brand of comedy. Plympton is a guest of honor at the upcoming Film Fest Tucson, running October 13 - 15th in downtown Tucson. Plympton has assembled a showcase of new shorts especially for the Film Fest Tucson audience, to be shown on Friday at 8 p.m. at the AC Hotel Tucson Downtown.
