Great Topic

Decent enough if a bit over produced, but fascinating subject so I will continue to listen. The host is fine. I like the interviews and clips played. I find myself wanting the episodes to be a bit longer!

First few ep were I formative.. then it got kind of annoying listening to things that “made her” need the attention of men. I understand there is psychological things behind trama and her upbringing but one person said at the beginning said if she didn’t want to go with you she wouldn’t and if she did she did. Then later they made her out to be begging or searching for approval from men. I’ll stick to the theory that yeah she had a rough upbringing yes but maybe she used the men equally to what they used her for.. shoot we still talk about her now.. and that’s what makes her fascinating..

JUDGEY JUDGERS

Almost all the interview subjects are 100% sure of her psychology and it’s super basic and judgmental. Then we have her interviews in her voice which are fantastic and she tells the truth “I wanted to be an artist... An actress... I had a 3 dimensional sexual power”. It could have benefited from more of Marilyn and less judgey judgers who label MM and dismiss her as an artist. Calling her fame and power hungry and promiscuous. Stuck in a bubble and gives the spotlight to all the wrong people. IN MY OPINION people. That’s what you say. You sound too sure of everything around you and it’s cringey. The great and gentle MM really could get more responsible journalists/ psychologists/ and artists being interviewed on her behalf...
