Want to hear something that sounds like it's from the sci-fi world rather than the Kansas legislature? There is a bill up for consideration that would require all females to report if they have had a miscarriage. Susie is shaking her head and wonders how the War on Women can get much stranger. Originally designed to help families get closure and receive a death certificate, it now seems like a way to blame women for not being fertile enough.
Next, Susie reads from an article posted on The Daily Beast about how Hollywood creates realistic sex scenes. Examining the sex in movies, from the recent Nymphomaniac: Vol 1 to classics such as Caligula, the truth comes out: stunt workers are having the sex. With special effects, the movie industry can make it seem like A-list stars are actually doing it, but no, says Susie - it's done by doubles who work in porn films.
Finally, in our "What's New on Audible" segment, Susie previews an audiobook that isn't about sex, but rather about a gamer who has changed the world. The book is Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus "Notch" Persson and the Game That Changed Everything, by Linus Larsson and Daniel Goldberg, translated by Jennifer Hawkins. Susie loves this book and wants you to hear a sample.
