A conversation around the ethics of the contraceptive pill. Joined by The Debrief's Deputy Editor Victoria Spratt and freelance journalist Bwalya Newton, we unpick the pill's mental and physical side effects, synthetic hormones, anxiety, depression, libido loss, why so few of us question its proliferation, and why women need more protection from blanket prescriptions.
Three days ahead of the US Election we invited Broadly’s UK editor, Zing Tsjeng and Guardian journalist Tess Reidy to discuss if the vote for Hillary was a vote for a lesser evil or a larger good and what it might mean to have a female president of the USA.
For this episode we invited Polyester editor, Ione Gamble, photographer Maisie Willoughby and presenter Cora Delaney in to discuss the politics of the young female nude online. From the selfie, to the sponsored post, the Kardashians and Harley Weir we attempted to touch on some of the pros and cons of more female nudity online.
We invited journalist Lucy Hancock and photographer Shanei Brown into the NTS studio to discuss stalking. We touched on Lily Allen’s experiences with a stalker the police refused to take seriously whilst discussing our own experiences and the impact social media is having on all our bad snooping behaviours.
