Susie is perplexed today over some strange legislation in the Sunshine State. It seems that although marijuana and bongs are prohibited, it's still okay to get down with a goat, a dog, or any animal you choose. Ouch. Why does Florida permit bestiality? Susie asks what up with the leaders in that state? It's okay to hurt animals in Tallahassee but don't try smoking reefer? Susie finds this hypocrisy hard to understand.Next, in "Tell Me Your Sex Story", we travel (via phone) to Japan to speak with ex-pat and In Bed listener "Mark". Susie wants to know if the sexual culture is really different in Tokyo, and she also gets a lesson on how to talk dirty in Japanese.Finally, in our "Try This at Home" mailbag, Susie answers a letter from a woman who is ashamed to be a cougar.

A fun, inspiring memoir from "the Queen of YouTube" about her journey from anonymity in Florida to massive popularity on the Internet, filled with the unlikeliest of stories that are as poignant as they are hilarious. "Is you okay? Is you good? Cuz I want to know!" Eager to entertain, dedicated to making people laugh, comedian and video superstar GloZell Green is game for any challenge, no matter how silly, gross, or absurd. Her crazy video stunts have propelled her into the ranks of legendary funny ladies such as Ellen DeGeneres, Whoopi Goldberg, Tina Fey, Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball, and Phyllis Diller - and made her an inspiring icon for a new generation. With this funny and liberating book, GloZell uses the stories from her winding journey to unbelievable success to help her fans and young women everywhere navigate the obstacles we all face in life while helping them find the greatness unique to each of them, inside and out. Is You Okay? speaks truth about the elements of life we wrestle with every day - empowerment, love, body image, school, work, family, relationships, failure, success. GloZell introduces some of her most outlandish, funny, and unforgettable video challenges and uses each to explore a serious yet common hurdle. Sharing formative stories and insights from her own life, she encourages young women to learn to love their bodies, break free of their shells, and carve out their own identities. Making the connection between hilarious physical challenges and meaningful personal challenges, GloZell shows that we're all in this together. "Everything isn't just gonna be okay. It doesn't just have to be good," she reminds us. "It can be great (even with a spoonful of pepper in your mouth)." 1. Language: English. Narrator: GloZell Green.

A dentist from New Jersey, marooned at midnight in the Florida swamps, makes the mistake of falling into the clutches of a hilariously depraved family of amateur surgeons devoted to a 17th-century libertine whose discovery of an elixir has kept his evil presence alive for the past three-hundred years. The author wrote this about his novel: I was down in Florida with my family, visiting a zoo that harbors a variety of reptiles and other exotic animals. We were part of a small audience watching a zookeeper demonstrate how to put an alligator to sleep by stroking its up turned belly. Something about that man fondling that alligator amused me so much that it struck me with a revelation: I had just met one of my characters. Not long after that I sat down at my keyboard and began to wonder what kind of voice this embryonic character might have - and what he might want to say. After a while I found myself typing the following sentence: “A sink had fallen on the Komodo monitor and busted up its head pretty bad.” After that sentence appeared, the zookeeper Lemuel Lee Frobey and his Uncle Earl started walking around their family-owned reptile park named Lizard World. I wrote a half dozen pages, but put them aside and tried to forget about them. They just seemed so strange: I couldn’t believe this was the novel my capricious Muse was asking me to write. But after several months, I found that I simply couldn't write anything else. “Take it or leave it,” said the Muse. And so I said, Well, okay, I'll take it. I went back to my pages - and the words started flowing again. That is when the dentist, whose acquaintance I'd made in an earlier little book I'd written, suddenly found himself in this new book, driving down at night into the heart of the Florida swamps. After that I had a number of other hunches. Each one was an idea I found myself so drawn to that I couldn't leave it out. For example, I had long wanted to write about a Poe- 1. Language: English.

Thirty-five-year-old introvert Todd Bryan hasn't really done much with his life, and he's okay with that. Until, at a painfully bad film festival, he meets Amy Husk. She's attractive. She's funny. She's quirky. And...she has an inoperable brain aneurysm and not much time to live. She may not even make it to the long-awaited final episode of Exit Red, the greatest show ever. She convinces him that they should do something crazy and frivolous. And suddenly Todd, a guy who doesn't do spontaneity, is on an insane road trip from Florida to Rhode Island with a woman he barely knows, just to visit a really cool hot dog place. Many things will go wrong. But, hey, many things will go right, too. There's a hook-handed hitchhiker and some property destruction. Maybe some sex. A kumquat will probably be relevant at some point, although not during the sex (if there is any). A laugh-out-loud comedy, a touching love story, and a cross-country adventure, Kumquat is a story about making the most out of the time you've got. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Verner.

You only have 30 days! Tick, tick, tick. That’s about how long it takes for most of us to run out of money after we get downsized, rightsized, laid off, pink-slipped, or otherwise let go from our jobs.So, what would you do? Would you be able to replace your income? Would it be with yet another horrible job or with something you really enjoy? Hi. I’m AJ. Really nice to meet you. And thanks for checking out my book. I won’t bore you with my “rags to riches” story. But let me just tell you how I got from a not-so-good place financially to a really good one, and what’s in that story for you.There really wasn’t a “rags” side to the story. I was never dirt poor. I was born in Ireland, grew up middle class in England, emigrated with my parents to the US (Tampa, Florida, to be exact) at age 14, and lived a pretty decent life. When I was 18, my parents had just enough money for me to take out huge student loans to go to college.I got a nice degree, then an MBA, got lucky and landed a good job in Tampa, with an okay income. Okay, it wasn’t a good job. The work was mind-numbing and pointless, the environment was soul crushing, and my boss was a real “B” who hated me. But, at least, the rent and the student loans were getting paid.Being single at that point, I spent a lot of my free time online (duh). But I was a little different than my peers. I was seriously looking for ways to make some money online, rather than just scrolling through social media.I had enough money to take the free “courses” that people offer you before they try to sell you their expensive courses. Turns out that if you listen carefully, they put some good stuff into those free “courses”. So, I put my new training to work. I started with Amazon, selling “stuff”. What a blast - seriously - buying stuff cheap, marking it up, selling it online, running packages to the post office, and waiting for my profit. I enjoyed having that little business, b 1.

A dark comic masterpiece - the first solo adult novel in more than a decade from the Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times best-selling author Dave Barry. Seth Weinstein knew Tina was way out of his league in pretty much any way you could imagine, which is why it continued to astonish him that he was on the plane now for their destination wedding in Florida. The Groom Posse had already sprung an airport prank on him, and he'd survived it, and if that was the worst of it, everything should be okay. Smooth sailing from now on. Seth has absolutely no idea what he's about to get into. In the next several hours, he and his friends will become embroiled with rioters, Russian gangsters, angry strippers, a pimp as big as the Death Star, a very desperate Haitian refugee on the run with her two children from some very bad men, and an 11-foot albino Burmese python named Blossom. And there're still two days to go before the wedding. As it turns out, it's not smooth sailing, it's more like a trip on the Titanic. And the water below him is getting deeper every minute. By the end, amid gunfire, high-speed chases, and mayhem of the most unimaginable sort, violent men will fall, heroes will rise, and many lives will change. Seth's, not least of all. 1.
