Podcast cover

Steph Claire Smith is well-known for her presence on Instagram, but how has her approach to the platform changed as her following has boomed? We get her onto the show to ask her about the finite details of a social media presence that demands engagement of young girls.PLUS! Sylvia Jeffreys called out Woman's Day this week for posting lies about her relationship, so how in the world do they get away with publishing utter lies? In the wake of Rebel Wilson's case struggling on appeal, we go deep on why tabloids can get away with lying. And, of course, the flammable state of Posh and Becks' marriage: What in the world is going on?You can watch the Media Watch video here on how magazines doctor images, and the piece on Broadly from a woman who once worked in women's magazines.As always, you're so welcome to join the conversation in our Facebook group!
