Podcast Episode 4: Jackie, A Girl’s Best Friend

This week we were celebrating the international day of friendship by thinking about how Jackie magazine was a friend to girls in the 1970s. From Cathy and Claire’s advice, to stories about friendships turned sour, Jackie was both a friend, and providing models of friendship to its readers. Listen to us talking about magazines, friendship and “threesomes” (not that kind!) in our penultimate episode of #FiveMinFem

The Jackie features we discuss in this episode are posted below, as well as a transcript at the bottom. You can read more about our internship adventures on the LJMU Special Collections and Archive blog, and follow us on twitter @FemorabiliaLJMU for daily updates on the treasures of the Femorabilia archive. Enjoy!
