Biz and Theresa explore the confusing moment when things go well. How is it possible when we know it will all melt down? Well, doesn’t it always melt down and don’t we want to be be proven right that we can’t do anything nice? UHG! Be it play dates, travel, staying up late or any other set of circumstances that usually go wrong with kids, maybe we should embrace the amazing feeling of the worst not happening. Plus Biz gets a Thanksgiving surprise, Theresa has a dream and we welcome back actor, director, screenwriter Kay Cannon to talk about her new movie Blockers and being cool with teens having sex.

For our final show of #MaxFunDrive 2016 we decided to pander and devote an entire show to sex. So we're asking what pop culture turns us on? What films, TV, books or music first made us burn with desire? And what are our favorite sex scenes?

With Guy Branum, Wynter Mitchell, Oliver Wang and Margaret Wappler.

That’s My Jam:
Wynter Mitchell - Know Me From by Stormzy
Oliver Wang - I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl by Nina Simone
Margaret Wappler - Brazil by Declan McKenna
Guy Branum - Here You Come Again by Dolly Parton

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.

You can let us know what you think of Pop Rocket and suggest topics in our Facebook group or via @PopRocket on Twitter.

We continue our journey into The Sound of Young America's vast audio archive with this program from The Sound of Young America Classics.

On this week's show Dirty Mind we're joined by guests Blowfly - the legendary, dirtiest R&B legend of all time and author Legs Mc Neil.

Blowfly is best known for his 60's and 70's raps mostly about sex. The name Blowfly came from his grandmother, who overheard him as a child singing "Do the Twist" as "Suck My Dick", and said "You is nastier than a blowfly." We talk with Blowfly about his childhood; his break into dirty R&B rapping and hear a few of his famous songs including "Ugly People".

We also talk to Legs McNeil, author of the book "The Other Hollywood: The Oral History of the Porn Film Industry."
Best known for his 1997 book "Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk", Legs talks about everything from sandwiches to his inside dealings with the porn industry.

Podthoughts by Ian Brill: "The Savage Love Podcast"

| 1 comment


Journalist Ian Brill is offering us a weekly review from the world of podcasting -- "Podthoughts." This week, he examines The Savage Love Podcast, from the Seattle alternative newspaper The Stranger. The program's host, Dan Savage, was once a guest on The Sound of Young America: here's the MP3.

Dan Savage can’t seem to go twenty seconds into his podcast without dropping a few expletives. It’s a bit jarring, but there’s no point in getting offended. In a typical episode, Savage answers four or five pre-recorded calls that seek his opinions on strap-on dildos, rape fantasies, vagina destined Splenda and any other number of matters far more extreme than the simple utterance of expletives. If you’re offended by that sort of content, you probably won’t get anything out of Savage Love. That’s a shame, because there’s a lot of get out of it.

Savage is clearly committed to educating the world on a subject we all deal but rarely talk about directly: S-E-X. The lack of communication about sex between so many people leads to a lot of dysfunctions. Savage brings it all out in the open so people can start living happier lives.

Occasionally Savage will call someone back to get a better handle on the subject. Those times Savage proves himself as being the empathic soul his listeners needs. Even though it’s the stranger fetishes that get the most attention (Splenda? In the vagina?) most of the problems Savage is given concern arguments between lovers and misinformation on certain medical issues.

Not that Savage always plays the Dr. Ruth-like gentle sage when he’s helping out his callers. He’s not afraid to call one an asshole if it’s warranted, and in some cases it certainly is. Thankfully, though, most of the time Savage needs only to be thoughtful and informative to fix the problems he’s given.

Savage has a similarly low tolerance for BS. Many times the calls he gets are from people who have more worries than they have actual problems. In the June 12th edition, a very sexually open mother is concerned her daughters’ sex lives may be too “vanilla.” Savage phrases his advice simply: “back the fuck off.” I really appreciated this. Savage could be like so many other advice columnists and just create a culture distress and confessions that are blown way out of proportion. Instead he’s able to put these people’s situations into perspective and tell them what’s really going on.

People still come to Savage for advice, perhaps because they know he’s going to be straight with them. He’s also one of the few people in the public sphere whose counsel comes from a sex-positive point-of-view. Savage’s personality, a beautifully paradoxical mix of wise and exasperated, is always entertaining. It’s the reason why I’ve found Savage Love one of the most addictive podcasts around.
