Episode 7 - Nina Hartley

You may think you know Nina Hartley intimately, but did she come to your house and drink tea and talk about her childhood dreams? Not likely, suckah! But you don’t have to take my word for it that she’s as bright and charming as she is gorgeous, you can listen in for yourself to Episode 7, in which Nina comes to the man cave to talk about feminism, growing up in Berkeley, bad marriages, good sex and why she doesn’t masturbate on airplanes. We learned stuff! You will, too!

Julien comes by the man cave to talk about his utterly riveting film, The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia, rife with shoot-outs, robberies, gas-huffing , drug dealing, pill popping, murders, and tap dancing.
