If you have stomach problems or allergies, you probably have a doctor you can call. But if things are not working in the bedroom, who do you call then? What if you lose desire or are having trouble with the mechanics of sexual intimacy? Who would you call then?

Sexual experiences are highly individual, but they’re also something we share (or at least try to) with our partners. And for better or worse, it defines so much of who we are. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet an emergency room doc who has shifted her career to focus on sexual health and longevity. 

Listen & Learn

  • The importance of nitric oxide, and how to promote it
  • New technology including lasers that might be worth considering

You’ve probably noticed the media right now is filled with polarizing voices, rage, and vitriol; but have you noticed that these extreme views are not your own? Have you noticed that hardly anyone you know is truly radical in their views? Most people are reasonable, thoughtful, and concerned. 

On this week’s podcast, I’d like to share my own experiences with courting radical viewpoints, and why they pop right now on social media. I’d also like to address some of the hatemail, critical inquiries, and listener feedback I’ve received.  

Listen & learn: 

  • My own politically flip flopping views 
  • The dire need for critical thinking amidst a sound-bite media frenzy
  • Why listening to people you disagree with might be the most important conversations to have
  • How so-called “hot issues” of the day are not actually popular, they’re simply salacious
  • My (un)safe space hope for the podcast
