Jaws - The 40th Anniversary

Jaws-movie-poster.jpg

In this second hour of Midday Friday - more reaction to today's historic Supreme Court ruling on same sex marriage. We speak with Martha Ertman, an expert in family law at the University of Maryland School of Law whose book recounting her own same sex marriage has just been published.

We'll speak to her about what decision will mean for families, and how it will affect family law.  Plus, it's the 40th anniversary of the first summer blockbuster - Jaws.  Midday film critics Chris Reed and Linda DeLibro join us for a look back to 1975 at Steven Spielberg's legendary thriller and pop culture phenomenon.

Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
