It's not just rapists and pedophiles that get listed on sex-offender registries. Also lumped in are public urinators and consenting teens who are screwed for life! A good and helpful idea has harmed some pretty innocent people, becoming a scarlet letter that doesn't go away. Susie looks at a New York Times article by Julie Bosman that details the problems with the registries.
Then, it's "What's New on Audible". Susie has a great new audiobook to share with you: Body Counts: A Memoir of Politics, Sex, Aids and Survival by Sean Strub, narrated by David Drake, which tells the story of a politics-obsessed college kid who becomes a radical activist in the 1980s AIDS era in New York City. You'll learn about the group ACT UP and the many demonstrations that forced America to deal with the AIDS crisis.
