Rank #1: Does CBD deserve the hype?

Podcast cover
Read more

CBD is everywhere: You can buy CBD olive oil, CBD mascara, CBD supplements for your dog- even CBD tampons! Some swear it alleviates everything from insomnia to chronic pain, anxiety and depression. But is it everything it’s cracked up to be? Or is it just the latest fad? Katie weeds out CBD fact from fiction with a little help from Kristen Bell, a CBD devotee, Rob Rosenheck, co-founder of Hollywood’s favorite CBD brand, and Dr. Yasmin Hurd, the country’s leading CBD researcher. She even samples some CBD products—for science!—and shares her thoughts about the experience.

Rank #2: Is violent porn changing us?

Podcast cover
Read more

Are you holding a smartphone or sitting down at your laptop right now? If so, you’re just a few clicks away from free, hardcore pornography. There are no explicit content warnings, and no age verifications to make you think twice about clicking "play”—which means kids as young as 9 and 10 are being exposed to sex for the first time via sites like PornHub. But what happens when porn becomes a form of sex education? On this special preview episode of Next Question with Katie Couric, Katie talks to a young woman who believes porn led to her boyfriend’s scary behavior during sex, and gets real teens to open up about their experiences with porn. Later, she sits down with anti-porn activist Dr. Gail Dines and sex educator Al Vernacchio to tackle how parents can counteract the alarming messages their kids may be absorbing—not just about sex, but about consent, gender equality, and what a healthy relationship actually looks like.
