48:07 Question of the Week

"Why is the term 'Queer' used when in the dictionary that term means 'Strange'? I am transgendered and I would prefer the term 'Unique'. Thanks and keep up the work."
(From: Cindy)

57:20 United for a Fair Economy's Betsy Leondar Wright talks about their latest publication, a book titled "The Color of Wealth: The Story behind the U.S. Racial Wealth Divide". Written by a racially diverse team, it reveals economic practices that enforce wealth disparity across racial lines. Among the culprits: government wealth-building programs that benefit white Americans while excluding non-whites.

A long time economic justice organizer and researcher, Betsy is director of communications at United for a Fair Economy. She is the author of "Class Matters: Cross Class alliance Building for Middle Class Activists", & co-author of the United for a Fair Economy report "The State of the Dream 2005: Disowned in the Ownership Society," and co-editor of "The Wealth Inequality Reader".

95:18 To most transgender folks, Virginia Prince is well-known as the irascible icon who started the first-ever support group for crossdressers. But most of us know little of her life. For the first time, now, we have the opportunity to read her life's story, thanks to Richard F. Docter, who joins us to talk about his biography of Virginia titled, "Man to Woman: the transgender journey of Virginia Prince."

Dr. Docter, as he is affectionately called by many in the transgender community, is the author of "Transvestites and Transsexuals", a popular book published by Plenum Press in 1988. In addition to his biography of Virginia Prince, he has also just completed a biography of Christine Jorgensen which will be in bookstores later this year.
