This is the weekly podcast for Mother Jones. Sara Ziff began her career as a top runway model when she was just 14 years old. For a decade, she worked for designers like Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs. Now, Ziff and her partner Ole Schell made a documentary on what modeling is really like backstage. The two of them spoke with assistant editor Jen Phillips about how models are exploited, what it’s like to be on a billboard in Times Square, and about being detained by armed guards for trying to film at a Hollywood party.
