Writer Soraya Roberts On Jordan Catalano And Tippi Hedren

This week on “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Hazel Cills and Rachel Handler co-host the show with Soraya Roberts, longform culture writer and author of In My Humble Opinion: My So-Called Life, a book about the best show that has ever existed on this doomed planet. We spend a not-inconsequential amount of time debating whether or not Jordan Catalano is the ideal human mate, then talk about Tippi Hedren's new accusations against Alfred Hitchcock and how they illuminate what it means to be a powerful man's "muse." Later, we solve a Lady Problem for Kelsey, whose boss wants her to smile more.
