Yes, today’s podcast is all about sex. It’s all about getting laid. No, the show is not becoming a porn pod.
Today, we will explore what sex means to a man and a woman who spend a night together between the sheets. You’ll discover that it can mean very different things to each of them.
Our guests are Anne van Leeuwen and Ryan Hollyman, two very talented actors who are currently performing in a play called C’MON, Angie at the Assembly Theatre in Toronto.
This is a smart, compelling, provocative play that confronts the uncomfortable question, “What is sexual consent?” It’s an important and even dangerous question when the people forced to answer it have spent what could be seen as a “wild night in bed.”
This episode will take you on a fascinating journey that will challenge you, make you feel and think differently, and take you on an important inner journey toward the heart of who you are as a man or a woman.
This is some of the territory that the play explores and our guests approach in this episode:
- The nature of true sexual consent
- Can a fun night in bed really be an assault?
- What is rape?
- Do men and women want and expect different things from sex?
- Can a good man be a sexual aggressor?
- Do we need a new vocabulary for men and women to authentically communicate?
C’MON, Angie will take you to places you will want to avoid at the same time that you feel irresistibly drawn to them.
Listen, learn, expand, get angry, and enjoy our intimate conversation about sex.

ANNE & RYAN’S FAVORITE QUOTES
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” – Calvin Coolidge (Anne)
“Live and let live.” – Many people (Ryan)
