The last month has really flown by. I feel like I was just writing last month’s media recommendations. Yet, I’m unsure exactly what I’ve done since then. It hasn’t been writing reviews.
Nor did I watch anything to include in this month’s recommendations. I’ve been reading — but no books I haven’t already mentioned. I did listen to some fantastic podcasts this month, however.
- UnErased: The History of Conversion Therapy in America is a project in part by Jad Abumrad of Radiolab fame. The four-part series looks into the history of gay conversion therapy. It’s intense and enlightening.
- The Waves, formerly known as DoubleX Gabfest, recently did a show: The “Why Is No One Having Sex Anymore?” Edition where they talk about an article in the Atlantic about the so-called sex recession. I shared this article myself on Twitter and in fact recommend my readers check it out as well as the podcast.
- I had no idea The Science of Sex podcast is back for its second season. There was a URL change, and the old feed didn’t update. I was checking frequently to find nothing. Imagine my surprise and delight to realize that it’s back and there were several episodes for me to watch. Episode 40, How Sex Affects Your Immune System, was chock-full of science about a topic (and some related ones) that I’d never considered before.
- Sunny and Ken talked to Stella Harris about communication in sex and relationships on their American Sex podcast. I previously mentioned something she’d said in the episode that impacted me. The interview definitely piqued my interest in Ms. Harris’ book about sexual communication, so I’m going to try to get my hands on that.
I’ll hopefully return next month with a few more book recommendations and the list won’t be quite so short. This also means a couple of upcoming book reviews!
In the meantime, I put out a call on Twitter for more podcast recommendations. I’m familiar with about a dozen, several of which I regularly listen to, but I’d love to know what my readers are listening to and why they think I might enjoy it.
