Is it possible to achieve the things that the Sexual Revolution wants? Or is it just a bid for power? What is the history of the theories, and where do these ideas come from?

(October 1, 2019) Dr J is once again a guest on Ave Maria Radio's "Catholic Connection," where she's speaking with host Teresa Tomeo about current events in culture and politics.

So we're trying a new content stream--more of a news-y video program. Dr J gets to meet a lot of cool people in her line of work, and we'd like to introduce some of them (as many as possible, honestly) to you. This is the audio of our first episode's interview with guest Brandon Showalter. Dr J has his bio, and then we're off and running, and they'll be discussing transgenderism. Brandon's a reporter for the Christian Post, and this is one of his beats, so he's written an incredible number of articles on the subject. The list of links in the show notes is long but well worth reading. Just a warning: the video of this episode has some graphic pictures. The audio will have a couple of graphic descriptions in it.
