The High Low is going on maternity leave - or maturity leave, as Pandora accidentally e-mailed someone this week - for 6 weeks, so we’ve decided to go out with a bang, with an interview with the Oscar nominated actor and producer, Margot Robbie. We discuss I, Tonya, about American figure skater, Tonya Harding, with the Australian A-Lister, how she plans to put women centre stage via her production company, LuckyChap productions and what Hollywood really looks like, post MeToo.

Also this week, Pandora champions the feel-good, feminist Amazon Prime drama about a women’s glossy, The Bold Type (like a ‘woke' How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days) and a brilliant new podcast series produced by Save The Children. If you’re looking for some powerful, real-life story-telling, please give it a listen. Meanwhile, Dolly has weaned herself off Mad Men, in order to discover the Instagram account skewering men’s pointed shoes (Sniper Watch, if you’re interested) and read a new book that promises to reduce your worries and anxieties.

We’ll see you in April!
