Nick Waterhouse, the Los Angeles-based musician who has cultivated a ’50s and ’60s inspired sound, joins Kurt Andersen to perform live and talk about his influences and his self-titled fourth album. For our latest installment of Guilty Pleasures, the writer and “This American Life” producer Bim Adewunmi explains how the “Sweet Valley High” series is kind of preposterous and over-the-top — but completely intoxicating to her. And producer Lauren Hansen explains how a reverence for Leonard Cohen runs in her family, and how a group of artists are honoring Cohen’s memory in a new exhibit at the Jewish Museum.
