Podcast #103 – Freethought and Pornography

We interview David Bertolino, writer and producer of The Deep Throat Sex Scandal, a new off-Broadway play now showing at NYC’s Bleecker Street Theater.  The 1972 film Deep Throat was not only a cultural milestone for American culture; it was also the center of a federal trial that affected our right to free speech to this very day.

For more about the play, visit DeepThroatThePlay.com.

For those (of majority age) interested in exploring this topic, Deep Throat is available on DVD, as is the excellent documentary Inside Deep Throat.

Also, check out the Sep/Oct 2010 issue of The Humanist, featuring an interview with former porn star, atheist, and free speech advocate Nina Hartley, and the essay “Shifting Positions: Humanist Perspectives on Pornography” by Melissa Bollman.

Opening clip from Martinibomb’s “The Love God” from the album Wakka Chikka Wakka Chikka: Porn Music for the Masses Volume 1.
