Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Aimee Mullins is an athlete, fashion model and activist who uses whichever of her 12 pair of prosthetic legs is appropriate for the task at hand.

Next, commentator Erika Monroe-Kane reflects on the appeal of driving really fast.

Then, Kate Sekules is the author of The Boxer’s Heart: How I Fell in Love with the Ring, and a former professional boxer. She tells Anne Strainchamps how she got into the sport, why she enjoyed getting really strong, and how she coped with her anger during bouts. She still thinks there’s a lot to admire in women’s boxing.

After that, Melissa Joulwan is the author of Rollergirl: Totally True Tales from the Track. And she ought to know. Joulwan plays for a roller derby team under the name "Melicious." She tells Anne Strainchamps why the sport's enjoying a renaissance, and why most of the players are feminists who enjoy playing with the sexual and warrior imagery.

Following that, Tina Bertoni provides a commentary on what it was like to hunt a bear.

Next, Kim Hiss tells Anne Strainchamps about her first hunt. Kim Hiss is an Associate Editor for Field and Stream Magazine and blogs as Huntress.

And finally, Jennifer Shahade is the author of Chess Bitch: Women in the Ultimate Intellectual Sport. She tells Anne Strainchamps where the title of her book came from. Obviously the word “bitch” occurs throughout this interview but always in reference to the book title. It is never used as profanity. [Broadcast Date: August 3, 2012]
