On The Rag: October Edition

November 7, 2016
Every month host Alex Casey is joined by comedian/writer Michele A’Court and Mana magazine editor Leonie Hayden to discuss what happened in the world of women over the preceding four weeks. Better late than never, they return with help from their brand spanking new sponsors BON tampons

This month, our three raggers reflect on what feels like a flaming month from hell including Paul Henry's take on titties, Max Key's twisted idea of "real men" and how New World screwed up in a big way. If that wasn't enough, Wonder Woman has made it to the UN and Bono won the woman of the year. Oh, and Trump.

Thankfully, it's not all bad news. We are stoked to announce that On the Rag is now sponsored by the Kiwi legends at BON tampons. To all our beautiful bleeding listeners, please check them out for 100% New Zealand, 100% organic tampons delivered directly to your door – it's about the coolest tip we can ever offer you.
