A Pop-Culture special feat. Rob Kardashian with author Elizabeth Day

It's our second author special this week, with journalist and author, Elizabeth Day. Elizabeth's brilliant 4th book, The Party, comes out on 13th July and has whiffs of the Patrick Melrose novels, by Edward St Aubyn. Pandora and Dolly talk privilege and poshness and quiz Elizabeth, who is an esteemed interviewer, on her favourite ever celebrity interview (Clint Eastwood) and her worst (Rob Lowe.)

Also in this week's episode: Rob Kardashian's misogynistic social media meltdown and his restraining order from ex-fiancée Blac Chyna (and why shaming women with their bodies is a far from defunct trope) plus Harper Beckham's birthday party, hosted by one of Dolly's favourite royals.
