Rosalie Gilbert calls in from Australia to chat about her new book,
The intimate lives of medieval women were complex, to say the least. They loved and lost, hoped and schemed, were lifted up and cast down. They were hopeful and lovelorn. Some had it forced upon them, others made aphrodisiacs and dressed for success. Some were chaste and some were lusty.
Rosalie chats with us about the food, the clothes, the rules, and the general ins and outs of sex during medieval times. Its a small peak at a very revealing book.

Andrew Maynard is our first ever return guest, as he calls in to chat about his upcoming book Future Rising: A Journey from the Past to the Edge of Tomorrow.
Dr. Maynard, who is a professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society at ASU, provides a highly original perspective on our relationship with the future. Humanity has gained the ability not only to imagine the future, but to design and engineer it. And yet, we so often struggle to come to terms with what this means and the responsibility that comes with this ability.
How do we build this future responsibly? How do we learn from the past? How do we give everyone a voice in the conversation? Will we ever get a working lightsaber? This are just a few of the questions we cover.

Dr. Frank Faranda talks about his new book The Fear Paradox: How Our Obsession with Feeling Secure Imprisons Our Minds and Shapes Our Lives.
For years, Dr. Frank Faranda studied a state of fearfulness in his patients―an evolutionary state that relentlessly drove them toward avoidance, alienation, hypercriticism, hyper-control, and eventually, depression and anxiety. He began to wonder what they were afraid of, and how embedded these fears might be in contemporary society. This book aims to break us free from what he found.
