Susie starts off today's show by discussing the hacked Ashley Madison website, which offers discreet affairs for married people. The site has come under fire, but not just for the hack. When their database of confidential users was leaked, more interesting data surfaced as well. It looks like the site's whole service was a scam.
Next, Susie found a great article about sugar daddies (and mommies) by Taffy Brodesser-Akner in GQ. It's a darkly humorous look at why some young women and men don't mind being the trophy on display. They escort, hang out, and have sex without any emotional strings, seeing it as making good money. Critics cry foul because of the sugar daddies' power and control, but who's gaming whom?
Finally, it's "What's New on Audible". Susie's pick of the week is an audiobook that's part biography and part cultural history: The Creation of Anne Boleyn: A Look at England's Most Notorious Queen. Written by Susan Bordo and narrated by Barbara Rosenblat, this is a reconstruction of Anne's life and an illuminating look at her cultural afterlife. Was she a martyr or a raven-haired seductress?
