Gritty Pretty Radio

Australian-based beauty publication Gritty Pretty has recently started a podcast!

Are you addicted to pop culture and celeb news like we are? If you’re not already hooked on the Shameless podcast, it’s “a podcast for smart people who love dumb stuff”—their words, not ours! Hosted by Melbourne-based freelance journalists Michelle and Zara, Shameless covers all the latest pop culture and celebrity news, diving a little deeper than the tabloids do—they examine what things mean in a broader cultural, political, and feminist sense. And they do it all while making you giggle to yourself on the train (or is that just us?)
