53:48 Question of the Week

"Why isn't facial hair removal covered by insurance? I need this to be complete and hope to go for SRS someday. It stinks not being able to work anymore. I wish someone would pass a bill so trans persons could get facial hair removal, and other medical needs, covered by Medicare, Medicaid and insurance for people that have started this process. This is a must for someone like me. I feel it is not cosmetic for a transperson when they need this done."
(From: Rachel)

62:59 Book cover, 'Flashback' Here's a startling fact: more Vietnam veterans have committed suicide than died in the war itself. The culprit: post-traumatic stress. One Vietnam War widow whose late husband suffered from PTSD and eventually committed suicide, Penny Coleman, has written a book entitled "Flashback: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Suicide and the Lessons of War". In it, she unveils the story of the many soldiers who face such extreme internal conflicts long after the fighting is over that they suffer horrible mental breakdown and become uncounted casualties of war.

93:09 Book cover, 'Conquest' Although much of our culture has lost its connection with ancient wisdom, it's not too late to re-establish a link. Andrea Smith, Native American scholar and activist, co-founder of Incite! Women of Color Against Violence and the Boarding School Healing Project, presents an inspiring perspective on activism against gendered violence. Her book "Conquest: Sexual Violence and American Indian Genocide" reveals the connections between different forms of violence perpetrated by the state and by society at large, and documents their impact on Native women.
