Reality at Last
Finally a pod cast that deals with issues of sexual health honestly and with a sense of humor, and isn't afraid to take on the wing nuts. And because of this pod cast on iTunes I found RH Reality Check.org -- bonus!
Great take on sexual politics, informative, and funny!
This is one of the few podcasts I still keep up with in my busy schedule. It provides a good, honest, thoughtful perspective and is quite often funny.
Informative, well-researched, timely, and witty
Amanda's weekly podcast is essential listening for anyone who wants to keep up with the current state of reproductive rights. She features guests who are experts in their fields, provides brief but illuminating updates on the politics of sexuality and reproduction, and delivers her podcasts with the perfect balance of sincere concern and mordant wit.
