    Emily Ratajkowski's Body

    Emily Ratajkowski's Body

    For model Emily Ratajkowski, there's a blurred line between empowerment and objectification. Coming up in the world of modeling, a harrowing experience with a photographer provided an early education in power dynamics, shame and what it means to be the object of desire. Her essay on that experience for The Cut went viral last year. Now, she's expanded on the ideas in that piece in a new memoir called "My Body." The Cut's executive producer Hanna Rosin talked to Emily about starring in an infamous music video, growing up with a woman's body and taking control of how that body was viewed as an adult.

Interesting, but…

I like this podcast, the topics are interesting and short enough to listen in one sitting. But there’s one thing that makes me reach for the pause button as fast as I can—vocal fry. I would love to, in the nicest way possible, just suggest to some of the reporters to have some awareness of the podcast as an audio medium and to try to speak in a normal, unaffected way.

Why bother being nice? Again?

Didn’t this come out already in March of 2021? Love the episode, but I’m just confused..

Immature

I’m not sure what happened to this podcast in the past 1-2 years but it has gone downhill. Hosts cultivating self absorbed, bratty narratives laced with annoying vocal fry. Yuck. Unsubscribing today.
