In plain sight: the women who shared their Pavement stories, in their own words

In this podcast companion to the Spinoff investigation into the NZ magazine Pavement, two of the women at the centre of the story speak with Noelle McCarthy about their experiences.

Today the Spinoff published a story, five months in the making, which details multiple claims of predatory behaviour by men who owned and worked for Pavement, the magazine that once defined New Zealand youth culture.

Two of the women who shared their stories here speak with co-author Noelle McCarthy about what happened to them as teenagers and how those experiences affected them in the years that followed.
