Episode Description

In the first half hour, Patricia interviews Martha Hall Kelly on her debut novel, Lilac Girls, a New York Times bestseller. This story is about the unsung hero of the Holocaust, Caroline Ferriday and her unwavering perseverance that ultimately brought thirty-five former prisoners of Ravensbrück, to the United States for rehabilitation by 1959. They were a group of young Polish Catholic female prisoners. Nicknamed the Rabbits, they were forced to hop on crutches when Nazi doctors mutilated their legs testing the efficacy of sulfa drugs. In the second half hour, Patricia interviews Dr. Barb DePree, a gynecologist specializing in midlife women's health and author of, 'Yes You Can: Dr. Barb’s Recipe for Lifelong Intimacy'. She discusses sound medical advice that empower women to remain as sexually active as they wish for as long as they choose and will share real stories of her patients and the challenges they have faced, not only with menopause but other health conditions as well.
