SIM Ep 762 Pod 218: Witch prickers, wipeouts, and what a lot of tits

Tracy Dawson had a steep learning curve when she was starting out in screenwriting, as she came to realise the same opportunities didn’t exist for her, deemed as “niche” as a woman, as they did for men. This inspired her new book Let Me Be Frank, about women who disguised themselves as men to get what they wanted. She chats to Hannah about the book, defiance, and whether or not “shit” is a swear word.

 

In Jenny Off The Blocks, Jen hits the beach to chat to former world champion Pauline Menczer, about being a trailblazer in women’s surfing, and the new documentary Girls Can’t Surf.

 

In Rated or Dated, Mick’s eyes are hurting, because we’re back in 1992, revisiting the ker-ay-zy bitches of gratuitous tit-tastic Single White Female. Meanwhile, there’s a medley of protests with a dash of human excrement in the Bush Telegraph.
