Over at NPR, Molly Crabapple discusses her new memoir Drawing Blood, her involvement in Occupy Wall Street, and how she became a political artist:

…for a long time I felt like going to protests was the same as—you know, when people go to church but they don’t really believe in God? But they think, oh, better just hedge my bets. I don’t necessarily think this is going to do any good, but I really ought to do it anyway. It’s the right thing to do.
