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!

History is a lot dirtier than you think. Salacious History is a podcast that explores moments in history that were shaped by sex, romance, and people who were generally down to clown.

Using sex and related topics as a jumping-off point, Sarah Duncan presents a cheeky yet factual glimpse into historical moments and figures that may have been a little too racy for your high school history class.
