Biz and Theresa talk about gender identity and our kids this week as Theresa shares some news about her five-year-old.

Lisa walks us through some common misconceptions about gender identity and helps us learn language that can be useful around discussions of gender.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 296: Witnessing the Badger

| 0 comments

Tobyas brings the case against his wife Rachel. Rachel catches and rescues animals in distress and Tobyas would like her to stop. She thinks it’s important to be compassionate. But, he is concerned with the risks involved now that they have a baby. Who's right? Who's wrong?

Click here to see the badger photo Judge John Hodgman and Bailiff Jesse Thorn discussed on this episode.

EVIDENCE

SUBMITTED BY TOBYAS:

Evidence item 1
Tobyas says:
"The CDC states that in order to quickly test for rabies, the suspected animal must be euthanized so it's brain tissue can be used in the testing process. The best way to prolong the life of a wild animal is to leave it alone."

Evidence item 2
Tobyas says:
"This widely shared blogpost features the story of some concerned tourists whose well intentioned actions lead to the euthanization of a baby bison. Their advice for helping a wild animal is to 'Leave it alone.'"

SUBMITTED BY RACHEL:

Thank you to Jessica White for suggesting this week's title! To suggest a title for a future episode, like Judge John Hodgman on Facebook. We regularly put a call for submissions.

The Greatest Generation Ep 103: The Pudding Button (S5E4)

When the glass pinecone that Data’s brother has been hanging around with makes an unwanted reappearance, it dashes Riker’s hope of post-curry coitus. Starfleet is quick to dispatch a rare old lady-scientist to debate everybody about the relative merits of revenge. Is Captain Picard turning into Burke? Who should shampoo Adam’s crotch? Will she turn Data into an even weirder real doll? You don’t need to be an empath to know that this episode is not in its right mind.

Corin Tucker of Sleater-Kinney on The Early Riot Grrrl Scene, Finding Her Voice, and Sleater-Kinney's Return

[r] Sleater-Kinney is one of the most-loved indie bands of the past two decades. The band formed in the latter days of the riot grrrl movement in Olympia, Washington, and found an intense following. They were fierce, and they let their ideas "fill the room".

After recording eight albums and tons of touring, they went on hiatus. The band's members pursued other musical and creative projects, but there was a nagging question -- what would it be like if Sleater-Kinney returned?

In January of 2015, the band released a new record called No Cities to Love. It had been nearly a decade since their last LP.

Corin Tucker, the group's co-founder, joins us to talk about soaking up the punk and riot grrrl scenes of the early 1990s, finding her voice, and why Sleater-Kinney returned.

Tom Arnold Talks About Shaking Off the Bullies and Making His Own Way

Tom Arnold is a real show business survivor. His first big job in Hollywood was as a writer on Roseanne. He ended up married to her. He became a regular on the show and their relationship was tabloid fodder for five years. By the time they broke up in 1994, you couldn't make it through a late night monologue without a Tom Arnold joke.

But Arnold never stopped working, as a character actor, as a sports talk show host, as a stand up comic, and now in his 50s he's a dad for the first time and he's now been a star in Hollywood for thirty years and continues to make headlines. Arnold also continues to perform stand up across the country.

Tom talks with us about growing up in Iowa and fighting bullies, the difficulties of working in Las Vegas, his enduring respect for Roseanne, and the way he's found satisfaction with his work.

The Outshot: MacGruber

Jesse heartily disagrees with A.O. Scott's review of the film version of MacGruber. In short: MacGruber exists, and the world is better for it.
