36:45 We all pretty much take for granted that food comes from a grocery store, and that when we need it, it will be there. But this isn't always so, says Bob Pederson, executive director of Tierra Lucero, a non-profit organization in New Mexico that deals with food security issues. Is our food supply chain safe?

64:11 A listener recently complained that all we ever talk about is successful relationships with persons that transition their gender. We agreed that all sides need to be heard, and put out a call for interviewees. Renee Simousek, coordinator of the Madison Area Transgender Association and moderator of a transsexual support group, answered the call, and joins us to talk about the change in her relationship with her wife since Renee started her transition to living as a woman.
