37:01 Question of the Week

"I want to know what are the colors for transgender people? Also do you know of any colleges that has Master's Degrees in Gender Studies? I am a male heterosexual crossdresser who wants to work with transgender men and women in the future."
"Could you recommend any books and videos by crossdressers?"
(From: Gennee)

43:45 A popular trend among people of privilege and those whose fear of 'big government' outweighs their concern for the poor, is support for privatization of government services. Latest on the auction block: prisons and schools. Providing arguments against privatization is professor, feminist philosopher and award-winning author Elizabeth Minnich, who talks about her new book The Fox in the Henhouse: How Privatization Threatens Democracy.

NOTE: Elizabeth asked us in a follow-up email to post a correction: she used the wrong name in a point she was making, and meant David Horowitz rather than 'Novak'.
