Compared to What: The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank

Sunday, April 27, 2014

WNYC

Compared To What: The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank is a rare and intimate peek into the life of Barney Frank, the quick-witted, cantankerous, and first openly gay Congressman in the United States. On the verge of his retirement, Frank reflects on his 40 years in office and the role his own homosexuality played in his campaigns for social justice.

A flawless example of when the personal meets the political, with incredible “bare all” access, this documentary reveals Frank as one of the most sharp-tongued, entertaining, and lionhearted politicians of our time.

Hear a conversation with Barney Frank and Alec Baldwin about the politics of Washington, Barney’s life and career, and what he plans to do in his retirement.
