688: Baywatch Body, Breastfeeding Debate, & Disability Fetish


Show Notes

Susie breaks down the Pam Anderson documentary (produced and directed by our buddy, Ryan White) and the ways she represents the dynamic between men and women culturally. The documentary looks at Pam as a sex symbol, cultural icon, and reflection of gender dynamics in the West. Sarah shares a shocking story about a Baywatch actor who insulted her at a club many years ago. We hear about a woman who was ordered to stop breastfeeding so her ex-husband could maintain equal custody, and we debate whether the judge did the right thing. Sarah explains how women can wield their motherhood as a way to leverage power. Susie talks about a woman in a wheelchair who wants social media platforms to do more to protect her from people with a “disability fetish,” and we discuss why we think she’s being unrealistic about life online. We learn about the “millennial pause” and “Gen Z shake” and why different generations behave differently online. Plus, we hear the history of digital Easter eggs and how they make people feel superior.
