Sexual Abuse Against Women on America's College Campuses // 

Katherine asks why is this happening? She points to an immoral and depraved culture on campuses and in society, then uses Harvard's own horrible "sex week" to show the shocking contrast. Holden chapel is one of the oldest buildings on the Harvard campus. It was used during "Sex Week" to hold a sex toy raffle. How would the original students at Harvard in the 1740s who worshipped in the chapel feel to know how it was being used today?

“It is estimated that one in five women on college campuses has been sexually assaulted during their time there—one in five.” — President Barack Obama

Josh Golin // Hello Barbie // CCFC: Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood // 

Say Hell No to "Hello Barbie"!


Josh joins Katherine to discuss the horrible new "Hello Barbie" doll that records kids' conversations and sends them directly to Mattel. Josh's organization, Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, has launched a campaign to discourage parents from buying the doll. Among many reasons to boycott the doll are privacy problems with with having a device record and transmit children's conversations to external parties, conditioning girls to believe inanimate objects can hear them and believe machines can be their "friends," allowing corporate entities to speak marketing and other potentially harmful messages directly to kids, and more.  Katherine encourages listeners to boycott the doll, tell their friends not to buy it, get on the CCFC mailing list, and support their efforts with a tax-deductible donation.
