June 1988 Teen Life: Geniuses, Breasts & Wheels

Apr 13, 2021, 09:00 AM

The time will soon come (heh) when Sassy can no longer talk about such things, so get your fill (heh heh) of Karen's piece on getting turned on NOW. The issue also tells you everything you need to know about breasts -- or, almost, as Pam informs her moderately horrified co-hosts. Catherine's report on two 11-year-old child geniuses is dark in the moment, and gets darker after she leaves, as you can see in further reporting linked in the show notes. Pam and Tara are enthralled by Elizabeth Mosier's "Wheels," and former Hawaii residents Tara and Dave have some fact-checking notes when On The Road heads to Honolulu. Body Talk and Help get into their usual embarrassing areas (sponges! yeast infections!) before we close out with What He Said about smart girls, siiiiiiigh. JUMP IN to our latest episode!
