Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, Episode 72: If I Claim To Care About People

Things get a little earnest this week, with discussions on trans* portrayals and separating artists from their actions.

Transgender rights and portrayal issues abound in pop culture recently, so Pete and Bill take some time to discuss some things. Later, the conversation turns to the subject of Woody Allen, R. Kelly et al and whether it's possible to separate a person's art from their personal (potentially horrible) deeds.
