Pussypedia Book Launch:
Zoe Mendelson in Conversation
with Molly Webster

Journalist and author Zoe Mendelson joins in conversation with Radiolab’s Molly Webster to discuss Mendelson's new book "Pussypedia".

Written by the creators of the popular website, this illustrated book on the pussy is based on "extensive reviews of peer-reviewed science that address old myths, confusing inconsistencies, and the influence of gender narratives on scientific research––always in simple, joyful language."

Enjoy beats from DJ Riobamba in the garden before and after the conversation. Books available for purchase at the event and a book signing following the conversation.
