On the Rag - Wellness

Web (Full Length Episode) – 2020

In this episode of web series On the Rag (a colloquial expression for menstruation) the panel — consisting of journalists Alex Casey and Leonie Hayden and writer/comedian Michèle A'Court — delves into the highly lucrative, seriously dubious, 'wellness industry' flourishing on platforms like Instagram. The hosts discuss their own attempts at 'self care' including crystals and fad diets, and actor Brynley Stent parodies an online influencer whose exhaustive and expensive 'morning routine' lasts until evening. A'Court chats to Rose Stewart from NZ Family Planning who encourages women to 'make friends' with their vagina. 

A green smoothie a day doth not keep global chaos away.
– Host Alex Casey on the hype surrounding the 'wellness' industry
