    Is Our Community Ready for Its Me Too?

    Is Our Community Ready for Its Me Too?

    Welcome (back) to the Not Carrie Bradshaw podcast! I’m trying a new format combining my podcast and YouTube channel, so bear with me! In this videocast (did I just make that up?) I’m discussing how some of your favorite high-end designer clothing is really made, and Nivea’s recent interview with Kandi. Nivea shared some really traumatic life events that happened during her career which lead me to question if we as a community will ever be ready to have our own reckoning with sexual assault and abuse.

    Pretty Privilege and Pick Me's

    Pretty Privilege and Pick Me's

    Welcome (back) to the Not Carrie Bradshaw podcast! In this episode, Jess is defining the term "Pick Me" and (bravely) asking some questions about pretty privilege. How do we define beauty? What do we owe each other in terms of desirability? Can we interrogate such a subjective topic without biases? We want to hear from you about your relationship with beauty. If you're interested in being interviewed for Jess's research project on beauty and pretty privilege, send us an email at prettyprojectqanda@gmail.com
