Bitch Radio: Shortstacks, the Bio-Chemistry of Gender

shortstacks logoHere’s the latest Shortstacks podcast from our friends at Audio Smut!

In this shortstack, we look at the bio-chemistry of gender. Pop science consistently refers to estrogen and testosterone as the sources of masculine and feminine traits. Do high testosterone levels cause more stereotypically male behavior? Does estrogen generate a surplus of emotion? We speak with Dr. Cary Costello and a friend of ours doing hormone treatment to unpack the stereotypes and get at the heart of the issue.

More actual biochemistry

You need to describe more in detail about these and OTHER hormones related to the human body. Perhaps being slightly more professional... Why all the swearing?
