Hi Tara, thanks for another interesting discussion. I've read your book and enjoyed your thought pieces and talks with people. It's nice that you have a wide range of topics so we your readers and listeners don't get bogged down in one area. I'm in my late forties with a semi-traditional family (wife works full time and daughters in school) and work successfully in an institutional governmental bureaucratic setting. As a man in this setting, there is a significant power differential between men and women. If a woman accuses me of basically anything untoward, I have little to no standing to dispute that claim. The result, is that, in a non-obvious way, I simply avoid spending time with female co-workers. It's just not worth the risk. Ironically, it has revived the old boys club. I'm too old and settled to speak to the dating scene. Some young dapper fellow or girl will have to chime in on that one. Cheers.

Hi - as a subscriber I am very much missing the transcriptions, the past few have not had them - it was one of the main reasons I support the blog. Please consider restoring them.

Thanks Freddy, the transcripts come out the day after the podcast. You'll be getting one tomorrow for this for sure. If you don't see it, it could be in your junk mail. Have heard a few reports of that happening.
