Today we have a spicy topic—the art and history of the Pinup Girl. I’m joined by the remarkable Maria Elena Buszek and together we talk about her journey to and through Art History school as a minority, the rise of the pinup girl in popular culture, and feminism from her perspective.

Her recent publications include the books Pin-Up Grrrls: Feminism, Sexuality, Popular Culture and Extra/ordinary: Craft and contemporary art.
