Relations With ‘That Woman’ — Bill Clinton, Monica Lewinsky and the benefit of hindsight

Hooked, Hitched & Hung Up with Brittany Hockley and Laura Byrne

May 17 2022 • 40 mins

Remember that time the whole world scapegoated a 20-something-year-old intern but not her very married, much older, very presidential secret lover?

You might sort of know what happened between former US President Bill Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky. But the story’s taken on mythical status over the years, blurring the memories of those who watched it unfold on TV, and making it a confusing mess for those who didn’t.

Britt and Laura take you into an understaffed White House where the interns are working late, and the world is wondering about the inappropriate actions of the President. Why did Monica have to hand her blue Gap dress over to the FBI? How did they get together in the first place? And how different does the whole love affair look with the benefit of hindsight, in a post-Me-Too world?
