Hello listeners!

I'm on maternity leave right now, but I wanted to share something very cool with you today in lieu of a regular episode. It's an excerpt from Finding Normal: Sex, Love, and Taboo in Our Hyperconnected WorldIt's the brand new book by Alexa Tsoulis-Reay, and it's an up-close tour of people who are using the internet to challenge the boundaries of what's taboo and what it means to be normal.

Each story in Finding Normal intimately immerses the reader in the world of a person who is grappling with a unique set of circumstances relating to sexuality.

If that sounds fascinating to you, you can buy Finding Normal at your local bookstore, Amazon, Bookshop.org, or wherever you get your books.

Also, this might be obvious, but if you're listening out loud with kids or family, you might want to skip to another episode.
