It’s A Brand Nude Day!

Jul 3, 2020

We’re all naked under our clothes. It’s when we take them off that things could get complicated.

I didn't want to be clothesminded, so in 2012 I did something that I had never done before. I took off all my clothes and spent time at Solair, a nudist resort in Woodstock, Connecticut, all in the name of radio. Then, I revisited the resort a few years later to go skinnydipping with four members of one family to find out what the nudist lifestyle means to their hearts, minds, and of course, bodies.

This hour, you'll also hear from the American Association for Nude Recreation about what they're recommending to be safe as resorts reopen during the pandemic.

Finally, if you’re famous for taking photos of thousands of people, naked together in a public place, how do you keep that tradition going during quarantine? Spencer Tunick tells me about his first world-wide project, "Stay Apart Together".
