Episode 679Nov 24, 2019Extremely Appealing Men
It was when I was at NBC Radio in New York one Thanksgiving long ago, that I realized that men can be considered "saintly" for several reasons. And we are given next to no credit for that. Therefore I started the "Men Are Saints" campaign. This podcast explains my perhaps..."unusual" reasoning.

Episode 677Nov 10, 2019Curvey Cursive
There are curves and there are CURVES. And some ladies have both. Some of the girls in Sr. Mary Knucklebuster's class had the nerve to grow curves before I was ready to try to handle that. But they also put curves down on paper. It's Estrogen at work I think. Guys don't do that. Except for doctors and pharmacists, guys print. Print is Strong. Simple. Like guys. Females are fancy and curvy. This podcast explains that Estrogen difference.

Episode 674Oct 20, 2019Nothing Happened
Non binery is finery for some folks, but woman & man is my plan. Does that make me a feminist? I don't know. One of the greatest feminist statements I've ever heard was said by someone who identified as a woman. Gloria Steinman. She said, "A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle." Another comment about the general feeling among feminists at the time was, "If we can put one man on the moon why can't we put all of them there." I had a feminist author as a guest to talk about her book on my NBC radio talk show one night. There was a news cast on the air before my show, and the NBC Newsman had his NEWS voice going to the point where I was almost surprised that he didn't get returning fog horn whistles answering from ships in the East River. My guest almost fell on the floor laughing. I said, "What's so funny?" She said "I'm wondering how he would sound in bed with a woman saying, "I love you."
Episode 673Oct 13, 2019Great Opening Lines
"I may not be a genie, but maybe I can make your dreams come true." "I'm not really this tall. I'm just sitting on my wallet...my dear." "Your eyes are as blue as the water in my toilet...my dear." "My dear always makes a statement sound so beautifully...sleazy. But the best opening line of all is just..."Ribbit." This podcast explains why.
Episode 672Oct 06, 2019Hugs Heal
This podcast claims that Hugs heal. You know how good a good hug feels. When you're down, and somebody comes along, puts a couple of warm arms around you, and gives you a squeeze and a smile...you start to want to smile right back...and you really mean that returning smile, no matter how down you just felt. It's a natural reaction. And GIVING somebody a hug is a great way to share some of the smile that you feel happy-ing inside you.
Check out what happens in a baseball dugout when somebody hits a walk off grand slam home run. In fact, according to a just released Carnegie Mellon University study, a twenty second hug actually reduces the harmful, physical effects of stress, including its impact on your blood pressure and heart rate. That's because prolonged hugging releases oxytocin, which is a powerful feel good hormone in the brain.
Hugs heal. And right now maybe we all need some hugging. There are some therapists who claim to be hugging experts. When somebody claims he's an expert, a big Dong goes off in my head. Look at the word. Ex means that something that was, isn't any more. An ex husband for example. And pert is something that could be called "Cute" by people who can use that word better than I can. So when you put the ex together with the pert, you get something that was...but no longer...is...cute. Wonderful.
