Happy Halloween! This week's spookily fabulous guest is CAITLIN MORAN, who joins us to discuss her new book HOW TO BUILD A GIRL as well as: how many miles of foreskin she's likely witnessed in her years on the planet, her start in the music journalism world, Robbie Coltrane's doability, and how Jimmy Jazz is "eligible".... plus FEMINISM / REVOLUTION STUFF like: why rape needs to be REBRANDED as a penetrative attack, how women need to be able to start their days without thinking of themselves as a problem, what her kids say when they fall down, how culture can do what politics can't in terms of affecting change, and how the makeover scene in her book is different and better than what we are all used to.
Oh- also, Caitlin and Julie are very glad that Margaret Thatcher is dead.
Plus! Alice Cooper and his wonderful concert, the chief demo of this show and why it’s important for them to know that I’m on new meds, Meep/Taylor Swift saturation, the shade thrown at box springs, Chelsea Handler’s great ideas about sexism as it pertains to her own bare breasts, and the winner of the Halloween Costume Contest that we didn't even know was a contest until a genius woman sent in a photo of her dog dressed up as Ann Rule.
