Durga Chew-Bose

This week on “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, MTV News' style editor Haley Mlotek joins Rachel Handler to interview writer Durga Chew-Bose.

Durga is the author of the new essay collection Too Much and Not The Mood, and also Haley's good friend — in fact, Haley edited three of the essays that appear in the book, so we go deep on those. We talk to Durga about the strange and bittersweet experience of living alone for the first time, the blissful relief of hiding in a movie theater during the oppressive New York summer, and what it sounds like to fall off a bridge. Later, Durga schools us all about Polly Platt, one of the most influential producers and production designers and screenwriters of the 1970s and 1980s who — by nature of being a woman in '70s Hollywood — was often overshadowed by the men she worked with.
