When we heard that E. Jean Carroll—the same E. Jean behind *Elle*'s long-running advice column, Ask E.

But when we heard it was all in search of an answer to the very specific question "what do we need men for?" we just couldn't wait. This episode, we talk through E.

It's truly a ride. Find a full transcription of the episode, and a link to E. Jean's book, here:
