SIM Ep 906 Pod 277: Killing Jack, Helen’s story and too much ballet

In playwright Sadie Hasler’s new thriller, Killing Jack, she explores women reclaiming the streets today, while honouring the lives of Polly, Annie, Elizabeth, Catherine and Mary Jane – the women killed by Jack the Ripper. She chats to our Mick about family trees, class and privilege, difficult conversations, and why she’s not having Jack the Ripper in her Jack the Ripper play. 

Jen chats to director Rosie Morris, whose documentary short, My Blonde GF, tells the story of Helen Mort, a woman whose life was turned upside down when she discovered she'd been the victim of deepfake pornography. They also talk about the deep-rooted misogyny that runs alongside image-based sexual assault, and why we need to think about what we post online.

And it’s ballet a-go-go in this week’s Rated or Dated as Mick and Hannah watch Powell and Pressburger 1948 classic The Red Shoes
