This week on Arts & Seizures, hosts Mike and Judy welcome Michael Lee Nirenberg, Director of the Documentary Back Issues: The Hustler Magazine Story to the program. Talking about his close relationship with the magazine, his father was one of the original art directors in the 1970's and 1980's. Michael goes on to explain the background of the magazine with Larry Flint as well as its importance in the country's culture. More than just a pornographic publication, the magazine ended up being a beacon for the First Amendment. In the last few minutes of the show, Michael also shares plans for his new project regarding the subcultural history of computer hacking. Tune in for a charged show! This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.

"I realized that it (Hustler Magazine) was much more of a social force than I thought it was, and the way people look at it is that it's just pictures of naked women, but the social commentary was really severe and over the top." [8:29]

This week on What Doesn't Kill You, Katy Keiffer chats with Patrick Martins about his book, The Carnivore's Manifesto: Eating Well, Eating Responsibly, and Eating Meat. The book features fifty ways to be an enlightened carnivore, while taking better care of our planet and ourselves. We have evolved as meat eaters, proclaims Patrick Martins, and it's futile to deny it. But, given the destructive forces of the fast-food industry and factory farming, we need to make smart, informed choices about the food we eat and where it comes from. In 50 short chapters, Martins cuts through organize zealotry and the misleading jargon of food labeling to outline realistic steps everyone can take to be part of the sustainable-food movement.

"If there's a truth out there - that truth applies to everybody whether you're rich or poor, black or white. The elitism argument [in food] demeans poor people." [13:00]

"We need more farms producing more food for more Americans. That's one of the goals of this book." [16:00]
