R.J. Smith profiles the Godfather of Soul, James Brown

R.J. Smith is a former senior editor at Los Angeles Magazine and a music journalist who's written for the Village Voice and Spin. For his latest project, he took on the task of profiling the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Smith's extensive biography, The One: The Life and Music of James Brown, follows the musician from his childhood, raised in a whorehouse, wearing burlap sack underwear, to stardom, and then to reinvention.

James Brown was a hugely influential musician and performer, known for hits like "I Got You (I Feel Good)" and "Get Up (I Feel Like a Sex Machine)," and he was one of the driving forces behind the creation and popularity of funk music. But he was also much more than that -- a tenacious businessman who ran his finances into the ground, a man of messy and confusing political alliances, and a hardliner on drug abuse (who eventually fell to his own drug addictions).

Why didn’t Brown’s politics fit neatly into a particular mindset? And why, unlike nearly all of his black contemporaries, did he endorse Nixon? What drew crowds of screaming fans to his performances? And how did he survive the rise of disco? Smith's book delves into Brown's storied and complicated life and music career of six decades, as well as his effects on pop music, politics, and race relations in 20th century America. This interview previously aired July 24, 2012.

Paul F. Tompkins, Andy Zaltzman, Cameron Esposito and Nadia Kamil join host Jesse Thorn and special guest Craig Brown for the pop-culture quiz show where land laws do not apply.

There’s a lot of harking back to the Olympics, talk of various celeb's "outside the beltway" credentials and do you know which film features "Dennis Quaid as Steve Martin as Bill Clinton"?

Plus British Satirist Craig Brown calls in to talk about his new book which is either called One on One if you’re British or Hello Goodbye Hello: A Circle of 101 Remarkable Meetings if you’re American.
