Ned goes back to East Rock Coffee, the no-electronics café, where he connects with David Reed, who received his PhD at the University of Toronto in New Testament Studies, and is a post-doc at Yale in Religious Studies. A serious, yet sometimes lighthearted conversation ensues about the history of sex in early Christianity.
David's first book is currently "in press." Here's an article he wrote last year: http://www.dsausa.org/eye_of_the_beholder_religion_liberty_and_violence
