Oral historian Caren Wilton introduces her new book My Body My Business, a collection of eleven stories told by sex workers from all walks of life. They recount their early years, first encounter with sex work, years in activity. They share intimate stories about their families, partners, dreams and regrets. They also tell tales of tight community feeling and of a world about to disappear - the streets, the clubs, the language.  

Producer Lisa Boudet has a chat with Caren, and overquotes the book. This is the almost full length version - for a shorter one, you can listen to the edited version which played on air during the show.

Period proof underwear is an increasingly popular reusable option for menstruators. The idea is that they fit just like your normal undies, but they can absorb as much of your period as a tampon or pad would. I am Eva is the first New Zealand brand of period proof undies, and they are just about to launch. Mary-Margaret spoke to one of their founders, Kylie Matthews, and she started by asking her how the undies work.
