[Episode #11] American Circumcision: An interview with filmmaker Brendon Marotta
Play • 1 hr 8 min

The routine practice of circumcision on baby boys in the United States has become a cultural norm whose benefit and purpose is seldom questioned. Citing sanitation and health benefits to the upholding of ancient religious beliefs, proponents of the practice defend it's necessity. But for those who oppose the practice, a different story emerges. Through their eyes we are shown a practice that is not supported by scientific fact but rather held up by outdated and often misinformed moral and cultural beliefs, raising questions about human rights, the right to pleasure, and the role of consent.  Join me today as I interview documentary filmmaker Brendon Marotta about his groundbreaking documentary American Circumcision where you will hear the shocking facts about this practice, what female circumcision has to do with male circumcision, and the path towards individual and collective healing. Then decide for yourself where you stand on this important issue.
