Great exposé

Definitely affirmed all the reasons why I never encouraged my daughter to be seduced by the brand. Well researched and presented. I was a gasp at some of the truths.

Interesting

This was a good look into the seedy side of a huge brand. It’s sad to think of the pain behind the glamour and important to know that the physic of these models is something they even struggle with, it’s not natural. An important listen for teenage girls aspiring to the unattainable.

Athlete61 ,

Detailed and diverges into the Epstein side

Well put together and very listenable. There aren’t really any huge revelations about the brand / Les Wexner more than you would expect from a big lingerie retailer. It was interesting to hear about the link between the founder and Epstein. Seems a lot of teens were fed into the ugly web that he created.
