Launching July 13, 2019!
Brought to you by:
TIRED OF THE LIES AND THE SPIN perpetuated in the media, in our universities and in Hollywood? Does today's relentless gender propaganda make you feel as if you’re going mad? If so, get ready to hear hard-hitting truths about men, women, sex, dating, marriage and family that will make you cry out “Yes! Finally someone tells the truth!”
In her signature no-nonsense style, author and columnist Suzanne Venker goes where few dare to tread: into shark-infested feminist waters, where left-wing women drown in victimhood and try to get other women to do the same by insisting they’re oppressed by the patriarchy.
Enough! says Venker. It’s time for Americans to have the voice they need to reject the propaganda and to help keep their relationships and families strong.
The Suzanne Venker Show brings a wealth of wisdom from authors, educators, psychologists and others who aren’t afraid to admit what the culture won’t. And we have one main goal: to help you and the people you love feel secure in your beliefs about what you know is right and confident in your desire to speak your mind.
1. Hard Truths We Need to Hear: A Conversation with Dr. Laura Schlessinger
Original Air Date: July 13, 2019
Dr. Laura Schlessinger is the author of 13 New York Times bestsellers and is one of the most popular talk show hosts in radio history. She offers no-nonsense advice infused with a strong sense of ethics, accountability, and personal responsibility. In 2018 Dr. Laura was named to the National Radio Hall of Fame. https://www.drlaura.com/
We live at a time where people are no longer free to tell truths that anyone with common sense knows, yet at the same time America’s values and priorities are completely out of whack. That’s where Dr. Laura comes in. There are very few high-profile people who have the courage, the chutzpah and the moral fortitude to encourage people to “do the right thing.” There are very few high-profile people in who will say, without backing down later, what needs to said about men and women, sex and love, children and families. Things that are profoundly true but considered blasphemous to admit. Dr. Laura fills that void. We'll talk with Dr. Laura about her 40-year career helping marriages and families stay on track.
2. Dare to Be a Different Kind of Parent: A Conversation with Gia Valenti
Original Air Date: July 20, 2019
Gia Valenti is the Founder of Learn with Moxie, a curriculum that offers programs to get kids out of our screen-addicted world and back to the practice of simply TALKING. As a speech pathologist, 25-year professional thespian, and sales executive, Gia knows the importance of strong communication skills. As a mother, she has seen firsthand the negative influence technology and social media can have on the real-life connections our children are making and is committed to combating the effects technology has on our youth. https://www.learnwithmoxie.com/
One of the things that makes Gia unique is that she approaches parenting the way she does life: fiercely independently. Gia knows that it's critical to go against the grain today if you want to be successful in life and in love. "Many people who make big waves and stir it up aren’t always agreed with. Stick to your guns, go with your gut, and fight the fight." That's the conversation we'll have with Gia. In addition, you'll learn how to raise your kids in a tech-limited household.
3. Feminism Unfiltered: A Conversation with Mona Charen
Original Air Date: July 27, 2019
Mona Charen is an author and a syndicated columnist who’s been writing an award-winning conservative opinion column for 30 years. In 1984, Mona joined the White House staff, serving first as Nancy Reagan’s speechwriter and later as Associate Director of the Office of Public Liaison. She spent six years as a regular commentator on CNN’s Capital Gang and has served as a judge of the Pulitzer Prizes. http://www.monacharen.com/
For years Americans have been taught to believe that feminism is about equal rights for women. But in fact that seemingly benign concept is not at all what feminism is about. My guest today explains how this destructive ideology has ultimately destroyed the happiness of women, men and families.
Mona is the author of three books: Useful Idiots and Do-Gooders, both of which are New York Times bestsellers, and Sex Matters: How Modern Feminism Lost Touch with Science, Love and Common Sense. Today on the show I talk with Mona about where feminism and the sexual revolution went wrong, as well as the price we’ve paid for denying the differences between the sexes—such as family breakdown, declining female happiness, and aimlessness among men.
4. Toxic Hollywood: A Conversation with Tina Marie Griffin
Original Air Date: Aug 3, 2019
For over two decades, former actress and pop culture expert Tina Griffin has built a reputation as a leading media expert.

We'll also talk with Erica about why it's so hard to discuss this issue with mainstream media and how important it is for women and families to seek out the information they need in order to make good decisions about work and family.
6. Why the Feminist Life Script Makes Most Women Miserable: A Conversation with Joy Pullman

American men aren’t dropping out because they're stuck in arrested development, notes Helen Smith in her book Men on Strike. They're acting rationally in response to the lack of incentives society offers them to be responsible fathers, husbands and providers. In addition, men are going on strike, either consciously or unconsciously, because they do not want to be injured by the myriad of laws, attitudes and hostility against them for the crime of happening to be male in the twenty-first century.

Original Air Date: September 7, 2019
Shawn T. Smith, PsyD. is a clinical psychologist in Denver, Colorado and the author of five psychology books. https://docsmith.com/

Smith about how men can allow the right women into their lives and keep the wrong ones at a safe distance.

Does your blood boil when children are expected to conform to the lifestyle of adults because you understand, possibly firsthand, how hard that is on kids? And are you tired of a culture that frames adults as victims when we all know that kids are the ones who have to pay the price? We're going to talk with Katy Faust about her organization Them Before Us, which exists in order to advance social policies that encourage adults to actively respect the rights of children rather than expecting children to sacrifice their fundamental rights for the sake of adult desires. Them Before Us is comprised of ordinary adults who are committed to putting the needs of children at the forefront of the battle surrounding the very foundation of our society: marriage and family.

Our culture is obsessed with happiness, but what if there's a more fulfilling path?

What the culture says works in love and relationships flies in the face of science, common sense and experience. Andre Paradis will dismantle the madness and help men and women learn the importance of complementary energy dynamics in marriage and relationships, while paying special attention to how men think.
15. The Irrefutable Nature of Sex Differences: A Conversation with John M. Townsend, Ph.D.
Original Air Date: Oct 19, 2019
John M. Townsend, Ph.D., is Professor of Anthropology at Syracuse University and an expert on the evolutionary roots of sex differences. He has authored countless articles, as well as the book What Women Want--What Men Want (Oxford University Press), and has appeared on many national television and radio talk shows.
Anyone who argues that we're born with no predispositions whatsoever, and that men and women would act exactly the same if society didn't teach them to act differently, is ignoring a mountain of evidence from the major scientific disciplines. As human beings, we’ve inherited certain predispositions from our evolutionary past. The idea that sex differences are socially constructed may be the politically correct view, but it is based on ideology and wishful thinking rather than on empirical evidence. Biological and cultural studies show–very clearly—that biology matters.
