Podcast #18 – Susan Marks and a Post-Porky’s University Avenue

neon23The podcast this week is a conversation with Susan Marks, a Minneapolis based documentary filmmaker, author, and pop culture historian. We sat down a week before Christmas in her lovely Powderhorn Park home to talk about University Avenue. Susan was a key part of the recent documentary by Peter Meyers on University Avenue that debuted recently on Twin Cities Public Television. Our conversation covered a lot of ground, including the early history of University, the street’s car culture, and a lot of different aspects of the now-defunct Porky’s drive-in diner which was a long-time staple of University Avenue’s mystique.
