Shoot­ing Erin Molan and Rebecca Mad­dern for our cover was fun. We kind of wanted to ask them to go for a wine af­ter­wards, be­cause they’re the amus­ing, grounded, pos­i­tive, hard-work­ing women ev­ery­one should have as friends. We laughed about the on­line troll who told Erin her toes were ugly (they’re not, FYI troll) and it’s easy to see why she’s had to de­velop a thick skin. In do­ing so, she has helped to change the land­scape of women in me­dia. Erin made it eas­ier for Bec to break into the scene, and now each of them are mak­ing a male-dom­i­nated world much more ap­peal­ing to a whole new au­di­ence. Read about them on page 4. My other fave reads are about peo­ple be­ing paid $15 an hour to con­tract malaria (p.8), and why your hang­over re­ally does get worse as you age (p.10).
