Hellooooo! Happy Thursday, lovely Shameless listeners!
Today we're sitting down with Abbie Chatfield - the 24-year-old runner up on this year's season of The Bachelor. We wouldn't hop on a plane to Brisbane for just any Bachelor contestant; but we did for Abbie because we think her time in the public eye has been fascinating. Abbie is considered one of the most controversial Bachelor contestants in history for one, curious reason: Abbie likes talking about sex.
In this chat, we talk a lot about shame: why and how the media deploys it against women and the unique power in rejecting it.
