When Kindness Becomes Clickbait Culture Club.

    • Society & Culture

Hello pals! 
Let’s go. First up, we have a chat about the insane astronomy pics that NASA released this week and a chat about Florence Pugh’s #freethenipple moment. 
Next, Constance Wu returned to public life for the first time in three years, stating that comments she received after posting about her TV show, Fresh Off The Boat, drove her to a suicide attempt. We discuss the weight that people of colour feel when it comes to representation and hear from PEDESTRIAN.TV’s Soaliha Iqbal who wrote a piece titled, Constance Wu Attempted Suicide After The Vicious Backlash She Faced For Wanting To Leave FOTB. 
A Melbourne video has gone viral this week after TikTokker, Harrison Pawluk filmed an older woman without her consent in a supposed act of kindness. We discuss the ethics around these clickbait videos and reference an opinion piece by Virgina Trioli titled, No, women of a 'certain age' don't need your flowers or performative charity, so take your assumptions elsewhere. 
We also reference TikTok accounts Garden State Journal and MelbourneFashion. 
When it comes to recs, Maggie is loving the podcast Maintenance Phase while Jas recommends the novel Sunbathing by Isobel Beech.
Katie Zhou created our cover art & India Raine is our wonderful producer and composer of our jingle. Email us at cultureclubmail@gmail.com, find us on Instagram @cultureclubpod.
See ya next time! xo
