Wendy Sheridan, Mary McGinley, and Robin Renée talk women’s sexuality on this week’s episode – from Freud’s miscasting of the female orgasm to the liberation of pleasure by pro-sex feminists, personal discoveries of pleasure-enhancing household objects, and much more. Wendy shares a list of reasons women could be institutionalized in the late 1800s and Mary recommends The Birth of Pleasure by Carol Gilligan. Robin tries to talk about Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus and gets the title ass backwards before singing the praises of Betty Dodson.
Opening conversations take on a more somber tone, as the news includes an Alabama editor who called on the Ku Klux Klan to “ride again” in Washington, DC and the decision on what to do when a juror dies after an opinion is rendered but before it becomes official. The Mueller investigation isn’t dead yet, however, and seems to be moving along despite rumors of its imminent end. Reasons to celebrate this week: National Women’s Day (March 8th), Worship of Tools Day (March 11th), and the birthdays of Kiki Dee, Wanda Sykes, Micky Dolenz, Bow Wow, and James Taylor. Robin remembers singer Christina Grimmie who died in a murder/suicide in 2016 and Wendy honors her father, the late Ira Schwartz. In the Why is this Awesome? segment, Robin raves about Joe Jackson and his recent show at the Scottish Rite Auditorium.
