28:39 Question of the Week

"What is current research telling us about the future possibilities for reproduction in the TS [transsexual] woman? Are we going to be able to look forward to living the life of a normal "nurturing" mother any time soon? Is it possible that we may be able to not only carry a child to birth, but conceive it as well, as naturally as genetic women do? Do you have any information or know where we could find this stuff out?"
(From: Jennifer)

39:38 Evelien's Diary, entry 20: "Gay Pride"

Evelien's website:

45:16 Support for Cindy Sheehan's vigil in Crawford, Texas, comes from many quarters, including the feminist and GLBT communities. Our guest, Jodie Evans, is a co-founder of an antiwar organization called Code Pink: Women for Peace. She has been campaigning with Cindy Sheehan in Texas, and has also made five trips to Iraq where she has learned first-hand about both the conduct, and the effects of, the United States' military operation there. Join us for an energizing interview with an insightful and effective activist.

Jodie Evans has been a community, social and political organizer for the last 30 years, on issues encompassing human, civil and women's rights, as well as environmental protection. She is the author of "Twilight of Empire: Responses to Occupation" (journal entries from her trips to Iraq ) and co editor with Medea Benjamin of "Stop the Next War Now".
