Episode 1028 - Eve Ensler
When Marc read Eve Enslerâ€™s new book The Apology, he knew he had to speak with her right away. Not just because it was a harrowing, beautifully written, courageous book, but because Marc believes the book fully reveals the geometry of toxic masculinity. Eve and Marc have an emotional conversation about why she needed to change the narrative of being the victim to her fatherâ€™s perpetrator and how she constructed an apology from her deceased father to achieve that goal. They also discuss The Vagina Monologues, the importance of art in social change, and why Eve believes cancer was the best thing that ever happened to her.Â This episode is sponsored by the Mailchimp podcast The Jump, Manscaped, and Stamps.com.
