A Conversation with Professor Whitney Strub About Right-wing Sex Panics, Newark, and Film

Professor Whitney Strub is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is an Associate Professor and Director of Women's and Gender Studies at Newark College of Arts & Sciences and University College-Newark. Whitney is also author of the books Perversion for Profit: The Politics of Pornography as well as The Rise of the New Right and Obscenity Rules: Roth v. United States and the Long Struggle over Sexual Expression.

In this week's episode of the podcast, Whitney and Chauncey discuss Right-wing moral panics and toilet obsessions, local film culture and Newark, porn and sexuality, traveling down Route One and stopping at adult bookstores, the great film Cruising, and the politics of sexuality, gender, and race. 

During this week's podcast, Chauncey updates folks on his travels, tells a story about his 12 hour trip from Chicago to New Haven, encountering a white racist Trumpthuglican TSA agent, and his mother's eccentricities. Chauncey also makes some predictions about Monday's presidential debate between Trump and Clinton and offers some comments about police thuggery in Tulsa and Charlotte.
