    This week Olivia speaks to model, actor and writer, Emily Ratajkowski.


    The two discuss the relationship with your body, self-worth through the male gaze, and what it means to be a commodifiable asset - and the nuances that surround being exploited by that asset while capitalising on it. Emily gives an honest and raw insight into the sexual assault she experienced throughout her life, personally and professionally.


    They also discuss how publishing Emily's collection of essays, My Body, was her way of opening the closet door, turning the on the lights and staring the monster in the face.
