Audio Archives: Making sex-ed a crime

On Friday, Wisconsin State Rep. Tamara Grigsby spoke to Alan Colmes about her battle with a district attorney who is threatening to prosecute sex-ed teachers. The discussion was kind of amazing. You can read more about this here, on Alan's website.

It ain't over 'til the fallen lady sings...

Happy Eastertide 2010 (and a few notes about one of my favorite operas)

Audio streaming here.

Massenet's 1873 opera, Marie-Magdeleine, celebrates the pin-up girl (and fallen woman) who was the first witness to the Resurrection. Today, Easter Sunday, is indeed her special day.

Marie-Magdeleine was a hit show, even in the US. (The tunes are excellent: listen here.) But after the First World War, for most of the 20th century, this lovely opera was forgotten. Musical entertainment based on the gospel, huge at one time, went into decline.

Massenet's OTHER opera about a fallen woman, Manon, is more well-known, and ends with a prostitute’s tragic death. Marie-Magdeleine brings better news: Christianity's most famous prostitute, very much alive, announcing the Resurrection.

Enjoy the music - and the good news.

Agony Aunts Then and Now: Available for three more days, free audio

A lively conversation between Irma Kurtz and Simone Bienne. Do have a listen. My jaw drops when Irma talks about a woman of 20 berated by her husband for depriving him of the RIGHT to deflower a virgin!

And I suddenly remember my first grade teacher berating my mom - for committing the unpardonable sin of teaching a child to read. Depriving her of what she saw as her specific duty or right, as a teacher of six-year-olds. A year later, we moved into town because my rents felt that something was a bit off about the school system in this particular suburb.

But I digress. Three days left to listen.

Audio Archives: What's kinky about a recession?

I was going to add this to my archives on December 8, 2009.

But the Tiger Woods scandal interrupted everybody's life - and I totally forgot. Mid-upload, I just got totally distracted by the demands of the scandal machine. And we all know you cannot argue with a machine.

Well, Tiger is less of a burning issue now, but we're still in a recession. Today (surprised?) this interview from February 2009 sounds more current than Tiger's love life, but we knew that was going to happen, didn't we? Listen here.

Wednesday, December 02, 2009

I just discovered that my conversation with Paula Shackleton is now available on the Book Buffet Blog. Here are a few samples from our 20-minute chat.

Part 1: Moll Flanders deserves our attention. "Not a 'worthy' victim. She steals. She abandons her children. Yet she's incredibly likable and you're rooting for her. She's also the creation of a dead white male."

Part 3: Machines or men? How factories look next to sex tourism. "In many countries, factories are incredibly dangerous. You can't negotiate with a machine."

To hear the rest, visit my Book Buffet page.

Judith is a hoot. She talked about the Spitzer look and her own unique approach to parenting. Also, will Facebook put sex workers out of business? And lifestyles of runaway teens. Here's the interview... because Yvonne Dunleavy's one fabulous godmother!

Radio Archives: Washington versus New York

At some point, an audio file on this site took leave of its senses, and now I can't get one of my interviews to play. So I provide it here for my website doctors, and for anyone else who would like to have a listen. The interview starts at 1:14, after the commercials. UPDATE 11/30: THE CORRECT INTERVIEW IS NOW UP HERE, COMMERCIAL FREE.

I spoke to Washington Post radio when Deborah Palfrey was alive and facing federal charges. Click here for the conversation.

This interview aired on Monday, May 7, 2007 on WTWP Radio 1500AM/107.7FM

A few months later, Deborah appeared on the cover of $pread magazine.

Tell Me More

Sex and the workplace
is the opening segment! A roundtable with host Michel Martin, Tracy Quan, Ruth Houston and Jennifer Kearns.

I totally enjoyed dishing about the pros and cons of a work-related affair on NPR. You can listen online or download for your longterm enjoyment. I think we have four unique perspectives here.

The entire show is worth a listen. What's more controversial at work? Hair or sex? For some people, it is all about the hair.

Seventeen minutes on hair, eleven for sex. NPR imitates life in the sex industry!
