Join Sex and Politics, this week we had Paolo Cremedis give us an update on the push for marriage equality and attempts to repeal legislation in opposition to marriage equality, such as the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and Proposition 8 in California. Brooklyn College’s Coordinator and Director of the Children’s Studies program PhD Gertrude Lenzer joined us via telephone for a discussion about the precarious situation of the Children’s Studies program due to its lack of faculty, and the College’s apparent reluctance to continue to support the program with no explanation. Our new senior producer Dan Kinch closed out our show with an update on the Bradley Manning case, including Icelandic parliament member (and Wikileaks contributor) Birgitta Jonsdottir’s diplomatic visit to the US to support Manning.

Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue
Join Sex and Politics as we explore the efficacy of dog-saves. Does it really make sense to spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on saving a few stray dogs, when people across the U.S. are jobless, homeless, and can't afford health care? Sara Cross, founder of the Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, has more than a few things to say about this. Whether you love dogs or hate 'em, this is an interesting commentary on the social fabric and values of America.
