Publisher's Summary

Free-market conservatives are actively strategizing on shutting down the government, based on fighting birth control. What's their end game? Susie is fascinated by these Republican lawmakers and has wondered why they are so adamant about getting their way. Reading from Amanda Marcotte's article in The Guardian, Susie covers the major points that make the right wingers so upset with Planned Parenthood's clientele. It has to do with being angry at people who are low-income, female, unmarried, and having kids.
Next, Susie looks at a blog written by psychotherapist Marty Klein, who writes about the dirty little secret of couples counseling. "If the public knew how little most therapists learn about sexuality, they's be stunned," he writes. And these are the "experts" giving advice when a couple's sex life goes to pieces.
Finally, it's "What's New on Audible". Susie's pick for best audiobook this week is Women, by Chloe Caldwell, narrated by Lauren Fortgang. This is a confessional novella about a straight girl who falls hard for an older butch woman. Susie loves it!
