Bitch Radio: Shortstacks, Fame + Fortune, and Reply Girls
As you may have noticed, Bitch Radio has been on a brief hiatus. Have no fear though, feast your ears on another episode of Shortstacks, a collaboration with our friends from Audio Smut!
This episode takes a closer look at the internet backlash against the "reply girls" of YouTube. Here's what Audio Smut has to say:
Bitch magazine's latest issue explores our society's changing notions of fame and fortune. In this short, we deconstruct the hype around "reply girls." Reply girls are women on Youtube who reply to trending videos with a thumbnail image of their breasts as a way to capitalize on the high view counts. The internet backlash is appalling, and the rhetoric in the media skirts what the issue is: run-of-the-mill spam. We look into how and why this is happening.
A special thanks to our guest experts Tony and Eric (@eric_neuman) along with all the amazing YouTubers out there on the internet!
