Join Sex and Politics-Arts for a very special show held in honor of women's history month and VDay. Listen as author Nava Renek, and hosts Phill Rosenberg and Yvonne Juris went toe-to-toe to tackle the issue of female objectification, as well as engaged in a discussion on genderized art, and breaking the glass ceiling in the arts. We also had film Major Judy Kenny in studio. Judy graced us with some her light hearted humor. Judy also provided some unique insight into film production, and her journey to both resist and learn from a male dominated field. Finally, to close our show dedicated to women and women's issues we were treated with a surprise rendition of "I Was There," which is a moving portrayal of the pain and awe of childbirth from The Vagina Monologues. I Was There was performed by Yvonne's lovely mother, Jeannie Juris, whose rendition brought the show to a profoundly eloquent, and wonderfully estrogenical close.

An Unlikely Duo
with guests Phil Nerges and Vic Ruggiero
Join Sex & Politics Fridays as we interview former Iraq contractor and author Phil Nerges and his collaborating partner, musician Vic Ruggiero. Together, they created the album "Don't Feed the Cats in Iraq." On the show, we talk in-depth about private contractors, the place of literature in war, and why you're not supposed to feed the cats in Iraq.
Writer Phil Nerges
Phil Nerges worked as a quality inspector of services provided to the Army in the Iraq war zone for 20 months between 2004 and 2007. After returning home in 2007, 57 year-old Nerges felt disconnected and uncertain as to whether he wanted to take another overseas contracting position. Choosing instead to take a sabbatical to write, he found his way to the vaudeville scene in Greenwich Village and a musical partnership with Vic Ruggiero. His book of short stories Don't Feed the Cats in Iraq, is a companion to the album of the same name. You can learn more about Phil at dustsong.com.
Musician Vic Ruggiero
Vic Ruggiero is a musician and songwriter from New York City, known best as a member of the band The Slackers. While looking for solo material, he found himself paired with Phil Nerges, and an unlikely, but wonderful, partnership was formed. Ruggiero wrote and arranged the music on their album Don't Feed the Cats in Iraq.
Also joining us on this episode is Kathleen Stansell with the Daily Dumpster Dive. Listen closely as she gives her delicious recipe for Vegan Pumpkin Pie!
