Politics, feminism, sex, TikTok. These four topics will form the heart of Emily Ratajkowski’s new podcast High Low with Emrata. Doubtless Cockburn speaks for everyone when he says: praise the gods, a podcast about feminism is just what the market is missing.
The new Sony-produced series will consist of two episodes per week. One will see the model and swimwear entrepreneur sit down for intimate conversations with special guests. Perhaps she’ll diverge from the Meghan Markle playbook and actually let her guests speak. The second will have Ratajkowski’s own commentary on current events. Cockburn is sure you’re just as excited as him to hear what the model has to say about the Electoral Count Act of 1887 and ballot harvesting.
The thirty-one-year-old supermodel recently declared that she was in her “bitch era” on TikTok, where she uses her substantial following to air her feminist takes and thoughts on toxic masculinity. This comes as no surprise to Cockburn: Ratajkowski recently filed for divorce from her husband of four years Sebastian Bear-McClard, after allegations that he was a “serial cheater.”
Anyway, the latest example of Emily’s TikTok polemicizing is too good not to share. While weighing in on the discourse surrounding Blonde, the controversial Marilyn Monroe biopic based on Joyce Carol Oates’s novel, Ratajkowski condemned the “fetishization of female pain,” before going on to vividly describe her plans to fight back against society’s obsession with female suffering. All well and good… until Ratajkowski later admitted she had not even seen the movie. Why not judge a book by its cover, right?
Cockburn feels that celebrity podcasts would add more value to the broadcasting world if their hosts start by sticking to what they know. For instance, wouldn’t Em’s podcast perform better from a video element? Cockburn has a feeling that would make audiences more likely to tune in…
