The 300th airing of my PRN radio shows, and it’s a stunner. Jeanne Stolzer PhD and I draw a holistic picture of how human evolution relates to understanding good nutrition, successful early child development, the health of mothers, the sources of physical and emotional disorders in later life, and what all this means for psychotherapy and medical treatment. For me, the conversation is a high-water mark in becoming more holistic in my orientation and my career. This is one of the most important interviews for me in my career, part of a turning point in my orientation toward my work in the world. Some of the ideas may seem startling, but giving them a chance may enhance your life, too.

Dr. Mark Schoen, a sex educator and a filmmaker, returned to the program. His website www.SexSmartFilms.com is Netflix of sex education – and a sex educator’s dream come true! The most viewed videos – of the 430 films on the site – are the Sensate Focus Exercises, the Science of Orgasm, the True Story of How Babies are Made, the Science of Attraction, and TRANS (about transgendered folks dealing with discrimination and rejection). Under the Education category on the site is Disability. Dr. Mark has paired with Dr. Mitch Tepper to make the next documentary: “Making Love after War,” and the pilot can be viewed on SSF.

They both will be on the program as they get closer to the conclusion. Tune in for a preview!
