Bill Mauldin on Willie and Joe

Here's an undated audio interview with Bill Mauldin. Sounds like he's on the other end of a phone conversation. The Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist talks about who exactly Willie and Joe were (or at least what a "shrink" told him after the war), and how he got heat from the brass for having beards on his characters.

I love how he described the shrink as "he's one of these guys who likes to talk to people in living rooms, you know?"
