In this week’s Gabfest, DoubleX editor Hanna Rosin joins 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.  

Noreen Malone is all about la vie à la française this week with the music of yé-yé chanteuse France Gall, as well as the classic novel of an American woman in Paris, The Dud Avocado, by Elaine Dundy.

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
