A good documentary film by Elena Rossini (2015), adapted to radio by KD.

It's about the damage--social, physical, and psychological--wrought by the huge and profitable "beauty" industry.

This week's installment explores the "skinny" ideal and the diet industry ...Photoshopping models to make them still skinnier ... images of men's beauty ... the sexualization of children, especially young girls ... the connections between the beauty business and the porn business ... and how to fight back.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "Yum-Yum Tree") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
One of this film's virtues is its international scope. Throughout the world, the bad effects of the beauty business are remarkably similar--but the regional variations are very interesting. The focus shifts among. Boston, Paris, Milan, Beirut, Mumbai, and Tokyo. Another virtue: the film focuses not only on women but also on men--the industry's latest target.

This installment of New World Notes is available also--in MP3 and other formats--on The Internet Archive ( The page with the download links is here:
