Episode Eight: Charlotte Shane Knows How To Sell It

The BinderCast is the only podcast exclusively devoted to women and gender non-conforming writers and their careers. In each episode, co-hosts Lux Alptraum and Leigh Stein tackle the essential questions of making it as a writer. Produced by Jennifer Lai.

These days, it’s not enough to just be a good writer. You’ve also got to have a brand, and you need to be something of a savvy marketer to boot. Sex worker turned writer Charlotte Shane knows a thing or two about selling it. In this week’s episode, she talks about why she picked escorting over academia, how sex work gave her the freedom to hone her craft, and why marketing shouldn’t be a dirty word.
