    83 - Apocalypse

    83 - Apocalypse

    It seems like every generation in this country has had their own unique fear of some coming apocalypse. Be it nuclear war, EMPs, disease, religious dooms, communists, or zombies, there seems to have never been a shortage of ways to keep us distracted and afraid. We discuss a few of these fear mongering and money making tactics and then, just for fun, talk a bit about what we might do should the end of days actually occur.

    82 - Sexual Normalcy

    Why are some sexual behaviors normal to us and others taught to be horrible or shameful? Why are some accepted in society while others perceived as taboo? We talk about how society defines for us our sexual behaviors and how such definition is and has been different in different places and times. We also talk about a very unique tribe of people that have some extraordinary and shocking practices for teaching the sexual nature of there culture to their offspring.

    81 - American Internment Camps

    81 - American Internment Camps

    During World War II millions of people all over the world were ripped from their homes and placed by force into internment camps. We usually only hear about the Jewish internment camps in Germany, but actually there were internment camps everywhere including right here in the United States. In this episode we are going to focus on the Japanese-American internment camps that relocated well over 100,000 people of Japanese decent for years during the war. We were very fortunate to meet a couple of wonderful ladies who actually lived through these times and were kind enough to sit down and tell us their story. We really hope you enjoy this piece of American history that most of us were suspiciously not taught about in school. It's an important part of this country's history that ought to be remembered!

    80 - Sex - Art vs Porn

    80 - Sex - Art vs Porn

    In another addition to our series on Sex, we ponder the gray area between art and pornography and how that line has thinned and skewed over the last few decades. These changes have greatly affected how we see sex and how it ties into various mediums of art. What used to pass for an R rating is now PG-13 in movies for example. Have we made these decisions or were they made for us by the powers that be? And how does one go about deciding which is which?
