Cattitude - Episode 118 PETA Warns of Cat Overpopulation Crisis and Offers Solutions
Play • 21 min
Most people love their dogs, yet it is estimated that more than 6 million cats and dogs enter U.S. shelters every year. That staggering statistic isn’t likely to change until we stop these animals from producing more litters than there are home to go around, when other, equally wonderful cats are already here, in shelters, hoping someone will take them home.

Lisa Lange, senior vice president of communications for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) will discuss the importance of addressing the pressing overpopulation crisis and share what steps can be taken to improve the quality of life for the animals who improve ours.

Sex Work w/ Irene Merrow - Ep. 167
According to Irene Merrow (Betches, Vice), sex work is a lot like comedy. And as someone who performs both, she would know! Learn all about the struggle of being a sex worker during a pandemic and the reality of trying to earn a living on OnlyFans. We also talk about the misguided policies that put sex workers out of work and in danger's way. Plus, you'll learn about Melody's new career ambitions that she shares for the first time. Will she join the ranks of funny queer ladies with a NSFW camera roll? Before we get to the sexy stuff, we gush about the new Netflix series featuring the most dykonic New Yorker that we can't get enough of. And, Carolyn checks in with Melody to make sure she doesn't risk getting red-pilled. Finally, we end with a listener question that might spawn ten related listener questions. But we read it anyway because we love our U-Haulers and want you to get out of your heads and into your beds. -Get extra content, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Who you gonna call? Mythbusters!
This season on Hormonal we’ve learned a lot about birth control. From the origin of the pill, to how side effects can be beneficial, to the history and future of Reproductive Justice. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t more to learn, especially when it comes to those pesky myths that just never seem to completely disappear. This week on the Hormonal podcast, we are assembling a super squad of science-backed Mythbusters. They’re ready to tackle questions from real users like you. On the mythbusting squad we’re welcoming back Dr. Lynae Brayboy, Clue’s Chief Medical Officer–and also joining us is Amanda Shea, Clue’s Head of Science, and Dr. Hajnalka Hejja, Clue’s Science Lead for Product. "It feels like it's constantly being reinforced that we should have an exactly 28-day cycle that comes at the exact day we expect, month after month after month. And then it's completely not true." For more information on today’s episode visit helloclue.com/hormonal. And to find out how to support the work here at Clue, go to Clue.Plus.
