    Introducing: Harsh Reality - The Story of Miriam Rivera

    Introducing: Harsh Reality - The Story of Miriam Rivera

    It was supposed to be a reality show with a twist. In a sun-drenched villa in Ibiza, six hot guys compete for a cash prize and for the love of the beautiful and mysterious Miriam. It’s meant to be her big break: the moment she becomes the superstar she was born to be. But this is the era of “cruel reality TV” and the show producers have a different goal: they want to surprise the men with the fact that Miriam is trans. A new six-episode investigative series from Wondery, the makers of The Shrink Next Door and The Apology Line, and from Novel, HARSH REALITY is the story about love, lies, reality TV and a woman before her time: Miriam Rivera. Written by Agnes Borinsky and hosted by Trace Lysette.

    What to Listen to Next: Operator

    During the 1-900 number craze of the Nineties, one company provided the vast majority of phone sex. American Telnet was an empire founded by the man who called himself “The Telephone Pimp.” He ran the company “like General Motors” and got filthy rich doing it. But for the (mostly) women who answered the calls and delivered fantasies 24-7, it was a different story. The powerful stigma against sex work was always lurking just beneath the surface, until it threatened to tear apart the whole company. Hosted by Tina Horn (Why Are People Into That?), OPERATOR is an eight-part series about big ambitions, Shakespearean-level corporate backstabbing, men and women at the cutting edge of a technological revolution...and on the front lines of a sexual one.

Love having podcasts ,

Fox Lake

Had to chuckle over detective’s concerns about digging into Joe’s background because it might be embarrassing to family, etc, but police sure don’t worry about that when a cop kills a black person, do they? Almost made me want to stop listening right then.

No race analysis at all

I enjoyed this podcast for awhile and it’s well put together but I couldn’t complete listening to season 1 because I’m astounded by the resources spent on investigating the deaths of white men in contrast to when Black men are killed by police and Indigenous women go missing. Wondering if the producers will have any analysis on that at all but it seems about white that they haven’t mentioned it.

The detectives were annoying

The story is put together okay, and slightly interesting. But stopped listening to the last two episodes. Not because they wanted you to pay, but because the story became annoying. There was just too much focused on how appalled cops and detectives were that someone could even commit a crime. Found it annoying that the cops took emotional offence to someone who broke the law. Didn’t like the message it was sending about people who control the law, but can not understand and accept reality of people who go through struggles. Spoiler alert**** the cop commits suicide after stealing $80,000 of cash over 8 or so years from the detachment he worked in. The cop was slowly trying to pay it back but the detectives covering his case took so much emotional offence to this cops behaviour. Yes he broke the law, but come on, why is there so much focus on how upset the detectives got over this. It just makes them seem incompetent and not at all understanding, that they get so caught up in the idea that a fellow cop could break the law
