Separation of Church and State - Sex Education in Public Schools - Consent - with Sally Buxbaum Hunt

April 26th, 2018

00:0000:00

Disclaimer: Yes, we're going to talk about religion today with Sally Hunt, who was recently featured on Fox News. We respect everyone's right to their own beliefs and values, but Angela and I feel it important that a government for the people, by the people, represent all of the people, no matter their creed, gender, or belief system. We do talk about sex for a lot of the episode, but if you wish to skip most of the religious topics, skip ahead to around the 30 minute mark.

 

Our guest today is Sally Buxbaum Hunt, also known as the Passionate Atheist. She was recently featured on Fox News to discuss the separation of church and state. We ask her about that experience, from what happened at the Wentzville City hall to her interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox. We also discuss consent and sex education in public schools. This is actually Sally's second appearance on our show. In her first appearance, we focused mostly on sex education in public schools. You can find that interview here. We hope you enjoy listening to the episode as much as we enjoyed making it.

Truvada and HIV / AIDS / STI Prevention with guest Matthew Swango

March 14th, 2018

00:0000:00

In the 1980's, an HIV diagnosis was equitable to getting a death sentence. No treatments existed and scientists knew very little about the virus. Today, with advances in education and research, it is not only a preventable disease, but treatments exist that make living with the disease much more manageable. Join us today as we also discuss Truvada, the treatment used in "pre-exposure prophylaxis".  Truvada is a pill that patients can take daily to reduce the chance of HIV infection.

 

Some other interesting things we discuss on this episode include how often people actually use condoms, ways that condoms can fail, dangers of lambskin condoms, latex allergies, STI transmission methods other than during penetrative sex, and much more.

Matthew Swango, LMSW. Program Coordinator for Saint Louis Effort for AIDS

Matthew holds a Bachelors of Psychology and a Masters in Social Work. He is a Licensed Master Social Worker who also is a Board Member for Empower Missouri.
