In celebration of Spokane Public Radio's 40th Anniversary, we present this episode from the archives, "Auntie's Voices: Nancy Roth Interviews Julia Sweeney," which originally aired in the 1990s.

The comedienne Julia Sweeney is back in her hometown this week. One of her main reasons for coming back to Spokane is to perform her one-woman monologue, “Julia Sweeney: Older and Wider.” That’s Friday evening at the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox. But she’s also here to visit her mother and see old friends. On Tuesday, she went back to her alma mater, Gonzaga Prep, to talk with students about her career and to teach them about improvisational comedy.
