Salt Lake City, UT – The writer and journalist Mary Roach says that it took science a long time to get up the nerve to study human sexuality. Even then much of that research went on behind closed doors in laboratories, Alfred Kinsey's attic and yes, brothels. Roach has written a new book called "Bonk" and she joins Doug to talk about the physiology of sex and about the stigmas that have made studying it so difficult. (Rebroadcast)

On Wednesday, Doug talks with Trimble about the complicated tensions between owning land and building on it, and what it means for America's Western landscape.

Sirota examines whether the populist uprising he sees on both the left and the right will transform into a full-fledged revolt - a prospect that terrifies Washington and Wall Street. He joins Jenny Brundin Tuesday to talk about his book, The Uprising.
