Janelle Monae joins host David Dye

June is Pride Month, and to celebrate, each week we are revisiting sessions with some of the many LGBTQ+ artists that have been on the show. This week, we look back to 2010, when Janelle Monae visited the show to discuss her then new album, The ArchAndroid. Hear an interview and performance from the multi-talented visionary Janelle Monae.
