Episode #398 — June 10, 2014

Oh my god, people! Prepare yourselves for an EPIC rant about Dan's run-in with some very angry transexuals. A man has learned that his father was sadistic, abusive and cruel. The caller is in to S&M. Does this mean he is destined to be just like his reprehensible father? A woman is offered a "free" trip to the Caribbean. But the trip is so NOT free, as the offer came from a work superior who clearly wants to fuck her and has to sign off on her upcoming promotion. Should she buy a new bikini? On the Magnum, Dan and Global Health & Medicine Dr. Jared Baeten talk about the pros and cons of using Truvada for HIV prevention. And more.
