Listen to Alex Casey, Leonie Hayden and Michele A’Court tackle the past month in women, news and popular culture, with thanks to our friends at The Women’s Bookshop.
This month on On the Rag, we are reunited in the bowels of Mediaworks for another hour of shrill women’s chat. Alex and Leonie unpack their first experience being on the proper television, Michele takes full credit for Neve Te Aroha’s name and the whole gang rejoice over some very nice baby news. We look at how the media handled the birth of our prime minister’s baby, from Mark Richardson’s eye roll to the lame pink mastheads in the papers.
Beyond that, we make some extremely embarrassing confessions, try to dissect the genius of Hannah Gadsby’s comedy special Nanette and take a long hard look at Melania Trump’s ‘I Don’t Care’ jacket. Head to our Facebook page for a chance to win Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World by Kate Pankhurst, and for further Book Club suggestions please enjoy The Women’s Bookshop bestsellers for June.
