In this week’s Gabfest, DoubleX editor Hanna Rosin joins nymag.com staff writer Noreen Malone and Slate editorial assistant Laura Anderson to discuss new research on sibling rivalry, the controversial legacy of the sexual revolution, and a study showing that women can get orgasms from exercise, especially core work.
The DoubleX "coffee talk" endorsements:
Hanna Rosin recommends reconnecting with the past via The Redbook, by Deborah Copaken Kogan, a novel about the 20-year college reunion of a group of once-close friends.
Laura Anderson (who authors Slate’s scrumptious cooking column “You’re Doing it Wrong”) suggests pleasing your palate with Tom Scocca’s macaroni and cheese recipe. And if you’re looking for a musical pairing, check out Kate Bush’s tasty album The Kick Inside.
