The Latest Podcast Featuring Homoeroticism, Goth Music & Dr. Mütter’s Marvels, Available Now!

Effervescent author Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz talks about an era where all medical operations, no matter how brutal or invasive, were performed on patients who were wide awake and screaming. She interweaves an eye-opening portrait of nineteenth-century medicine with the riveting biography of a man once described as the “P. T. Barnum of the surgery room”  in her new book, Dr. Mutter’s Marvels: A True Tale of Intrigue and Innovation at the Dawn of Modern MedicineYou’ll hear all about the brilliant and eccentric medical innovator who revolutionized American surgery and founded the country’s most famous museum of medical oddities.

No matter how many States ponderously legalize same-sex marriage or celebrated news anchors and sports stars come out, the depiction of two men embracing will cause immediate gasps of surprise. Should we presume then, that heterosexual male fantasies continues to dominate and guide mass media output? Images of woman on woman action are showing all over the media recently, yet male homoerotica is conspicuous by its absence. Three experts join Norman B to discuss “Who’s Afraid Of Homoeroticism?” Jesse Bering, associate professor and author of Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of UsRachel Hills, author of the forthcoming, “The Sex Myth” and Anise K. Strong, assistant professor of history who has published articles on Spartacus, HBO’s “Rome” and an upcoming article on the representation of rape in modern historical television dramas.

A listener who proudly announces she is a “Genuine Goth!” selects the quintessential Goth band, Bauhaus and their cut, Boys for this week’s Hit That Never Was.
