703: Pretty Baby, Manslaughter Nightmare, & Boys in Blue


Show Notes

Sarah found out she is a “true summer,” so she can’t wear the look of Gwyneth Paltrow at her trial, so now she’s getting rid of her clothes and embracing her color glow-up. We hear why “silent luxury” is all the rage and ostentation is out. We discuss the Brooke Shields documentary, Pretty Baby, and how she coped with being a child in an adult’s world including provocative roles and nudity at a young age, having an alcoholic mother, and the pressure of Hollywood as a child star. Hear why a woman is in jail for three years because she swore and made a gesture with her arm, and Susie is freaked out. We discuss a popular movie from the 90s that focused on the lead actress’s nudity and didn’t bat an eye at assault from the (male) main character. Susie shares the history of boys wearing blue and girls wearing pink and how medicine, capitalism, and consumerism drove the trend. Finally, we learn about a man who refused to split the cost of medical bills with his partner for the birth of his child, and we are livid.
