On episode 2 of Mixed Media: Dallas author Sarah Hepola talks about her forthcoming memoir, Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forgetincluding growing up in the Park Cities without a Gucci handbag, her "love letters" to beer and her struggles to find her voice as a woman and writer. 

Then, Dallas Morning News staff writer Dr. Seema Yasmin discusses her new story on vaginal rejuvenation and the increasing trend of  "intimate" plastic surgery for women. Is it just another cosmetic option or an example of how society and the media are preying on women's insecurities? 

Finally, grab the popcorn, Chris Vognar previews the latest crop of summer movies and rants about Hollywood's continued fixation on sequels and reboots. (Don't miss the hosts reenacting the new trailer for Jurassic World.)  

And as always, the show ends with guests and hosts touting something they love right now, which this week includes two Dallas restaurants (Stock & Barrel and Cafe Momentum), the 1948 radio play Sorry, Wrong Number inspired by John Hermann's essay in The New York Times Magazine, unlikely author Nell Zink's book The Wallcreeper and two new Dead Head books, Deal and So Many Roads

Also, there's this, but you'll just have to listen.
