Episode 91: Alana Massey on the Cult of Celebrity & Being a Winona Vs a Gwyneth

Listen to Alana Massey and Payton Costell Turner HERE.

This week we bring you writer and cultural critic Alana Massey whose book of essays All The Lives I Want: Essays About My Best Friends Who Happen to be Strangers examines celebrity womanhood and how it shapes our lives. I enlisted the help of Payton Costell Turner, a multi-disciplinary artist, co-founder of the design studio Flat Vernacular and co-founder GAL (Girls at Library) to co-host this evocative discussion. This conversation was recorded live at the Wythe Hotel as part of the work x work ON AIR series, a pop up live streaming radio lounge that explores creativity and storytelling.

Please let us know what you think about this show @litupshow on Instagram and Twitter.
