Ep03 – Gloria Steinem Goes Undercover

Featured

Gloria Steinem Goes Undercover

This week, Sarah recounts the occasion in 1963 when journalist Gloria Steinem went undercover as a Playboy Bunny at the famous New York City Playboy Club. Between the long hours, harsh demerit system, and sleazy clientele, it was an experience that Gloria would not soon forget. Gloria translated her Playboy Bunny experience into one of the most famous pieces of undercover journalism ever written. Grab your satin bunny ears and your 3-inch heels – it’s time for some rampant misogyny!

In our pilot episode, Sarah digs into the story behind one of the most beloved, and some would say the sexiest, Presidents of the United States: John F. Kennedy. She discusses JFK’s unfortunate male role models, the many women he seduced, and a series of burning questions: Why couldn’t he keep his pants on? Did his wife Jackie know what was happening? And how the HELL did the public not know about all of his indiscretions? All these questions will be answered when you tune in!
