Sex, Swears, And Tennis Phenoms

Happy Pride month! Happy June! Happy Friday!

This week we discuss ransomware, Naomi Osaka, and the viral bear-shoving video with Rico Gagliano, host of the MUBI Podcast, and Araceli Gómez-Aldana, a reporter and weekend anchor at WBEZ.

Then, we’re joined by our favorite Orthodox Jewish sex therapist Bat Sheva Marcus, who has a new book out called Sex Points.

And finally, John McWhorter, author of Nine Nasty Words, tells us all about the words we do and don’t dare to say...

P.S. Don’t miss Nerdette’s first ever Virtual Book Society!!! Join us on Tuesday, June 8 at 7pm CST for an evening that’s sure to flesh out your reading list.
