Hello and welcome to The Cheer Up Luv Podcast, with me your host, Eliza Hatch. This is a podcast based on the photo series Cheer Up Luv, which is a campaign I started in 2017, dedicated to retelling stories of sexual harassment.

In this podcast, I will be interviewing a number or artists, activists and creatives about their work, and discussing your submitted stories of sexual harassment, with the aim of dismantling myths and challenging some of the things that have become normalised in our day to day lives.

    The Cheer Up Luv Podcast: Faye Wei Wei

    The Cheer Up Luv Podcast: Faye Wei Wei

    Hello and welcome to the Cheer Up Luv Podcast, hosted by Eliza Hatch.  This week I am having a really candid talk with a very special friend of  mine, the incredibly talented artist Faye Wei Wei. I have known Faye  since we were about 13, when we used to hang out in dodgy skate parks  and drink panda pops (throwback). These days, I often walk into magazine  shops just to flick through and see how many publications I can find  her in. I am constantly amazed by how successful she has become, and how  incredibly beautiful her paintings are. In this episode, we speak about  the importance of role models, sexism in the art industry, reductive  stereotypes, and shame. To follow the brilliant work Faye is doing,  check out her Instagram here: @fayeweiwei

    *Trigger Warning* We will be discussing themes surrounding racial harassment, and towards the end of the episode we will read out an experience of sexual harassment.

    The Cheer Up Luv Podcast : Good Lad Initiative

    Hello and welcome to the Cheer Up Luv Podcast hosted by Eliza Hatch!

    In today's episode I'm speaking to Dr Dan Guinness, who is the dircetor of the Good Lad Initiative. This is an initiative which dedicates itself to promoting positive masculity, and in my opinon, are an example of an organisation who are actively doing the work! Good Lad Initiative specialises in helping men and boys with positive and equal relationships, and in this ep we speak about the "grey area", toxic masculinity, the chase, and how to be an active bystander. 

    *Trigger Warning*

    We will be reading out a submitted story of sexual harassment at the end of the show to discuss.

    The Cheer Up Luv Podcast: 100 Women I Know

    The Cheer Up Luv Podcast: 100 Women I Know

    Hello and welcome to this week’s episode of the Cheer Up Luv Podcast hosted by Eliza Hatch!

    Today I am speaking to two truly inspiring women, Phoebe Montague and Maiya Michelle from 100 Women I Know. I met these two at an event a few years ago, and have been eagerly following the incredible work they have been doing ever since, as it's a cause thats very close to my heart.

    *Trigger Warning*

    In this episode we explore themes surrounding rape, sexual violence, victim blaming, internalised shame, sharing trauma and holding space for each other. If you think it might be too triggering, then this might not be the episode for you. However, If you think you are in a place where you can handle these topics today, I would love to encourage you to tune in, as its a really important discussion to have. And ultimately, the work that Maiya, Phoebe and everyone from 100 Women I Know are doing is definitely worth listening to!

    We will also be reading out a submitted story of sexual harassment at the end of the show.
