Womens Magazine – October 5, 2015

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is here again – and corporate-sponsored pink ribbons still don’t provide women’s health care.  We listen to a portion of my interview with Karuna Jagger of Breast Cancer Action about what’s wrong with the whole concept of a breast cancer awareness.

Then I speak in depth with Cecile Pineda, whose new book, Apology to a Whale: Words to Mend a World, takes on linguistics, anthropology and the question of why some humans try to destroy the world we live in, when no other animal does.  Cecile will be reading in Berkeley next Saturday at a benefit for Western States Legal Foundation.

Star Trek LiveAnd the Drag Kings present Star Trek Live: Mudd’s Women at SF’s Oasis.  It’s a raucous good time, especially for those who love Star Trek.  I speak with director/actor Laurie Bushman and famed William Shatner impersonator Leigh Crowe.
