For the 2014 Stuff Mom Never Told You Summer Book Extravaganza, Cristen and Caroline explore the massively popular world of YA fiction and its enduring appeal into adulthood.

Summer Book Club: Erotica

It may come as a surprise to some, but "50 Shades of Grey" isn't all that taboo. In this Summer Short, Cristen and Caroline discuss several classic erotica titles and whether BDSM themes are bad for women.

What are the most commonly banned books? In this episode, Cristen and Caroline read between the (banned) lines of history, from a legal timeline of book banning to the primary reasons books are banned in the first place: sex, language and the occult.
