Ronan Farrow’s on the Line

On this week’s episode of the Waves, Christina, June, Marcia, and Nichole discuss former congresswoman Katie Hill’s resignation and revenge porn. Then, they break down the successes and failures of the new television show on female desire, Mrs. Fletcher. Finally, the panel is joined by Ronan Farrow to chat about his recent book, Catch and Kill, and the systemic sexism he highlighted in his intensive—and often dangerous—reporting on Harvey Weinstein.
