Faber is launching a podcast series to accompany comedian Sara Pascoe’s new book Sex Power Money.
The book, out on 29th August, sees Pascoe explore the biology behind sex and masculinity, the history of sexual representation and the way all human interactions are underwritten by wealth.
An eight-episode podcast of the same name, launching on 12th August, will see her conduct in-depth interviews with people who have experience around sex work, stripping and porn.
Guests include author Hallie Rubenhold, sex workers Charlotte Rose and Eliza Harper, comedian Sophie Duker, sexual and reproductive health expert Dr Annabel Sowemimo and pornographic film director Dr Anna Arrowsmith.
Niriksha Bharadia, producer of the podcast and senior marketing executive at Faber, said: “Sara's brilliant book covers a vast range of interesting ideas around traditionally taboo subjects. Launching the podcast allows further exploration and discussion of these important issues with a variety of guests. We hope listeners will gain deeper insight into the social and political aspects of sex work, stripping and porn."
Pascoe added: “These podcasts contain the most interesting and enlightening conversations I’ve ever had in my life - I really hope listeners find them interesting too. And they’re a great accompaniment to the book.”
The weekly podcast will be available on iTunes, Spotify and Audioboom.
Pascoe will discuss her new book with Deborah Frances-White at Southbank Centre on 8th September.
