This episode of CherryPop is presented by season 3 of the Starz original series, "The Girlfriend Experience." Season 3 focuses on Iris, a neuroscience major in London. As she begins to explore the world of transactional relationships, Iris quickly learns that her client sessions provide her with a compelling edge in the tech world...and vice versa. 

On this week of CherryPop, Meg is joined by Season 3 creator/writer/director Anja Marquardt (She’s Lost Control), and star, Julia Goldani Telles (The Affair). 

First up, Meg and Anja dive deep into the genesis of desire, and question whether technology has the power to control and create desire. Anja shares her lens as a filmmaker and how she artistically approached the franchise. 

Julia Goldani Telles joins the conversation and shares the collaborative and comfortable space that was created on set to safely explore Iris’ goals. Telles explores the problematic nature of the male gaze, and the refreshing and educational experience she had filming intimate scenes through Anja’s lens.
