Tea Time with Mel and Jay, Ep. 7: Review of Netflix’s Pole Dancing Documentary “Strip Down, Rise Up”

Tea Time with Mel and Jay is a podcast where Melody and Jackie review anything and everything sports production related; whether that be sports reality TV, sports movies, sports documentaries, or a sports series!

Welcome to Episode 7 of Tea Time! OK, so trigger warning, on this episode of the pod we reviewed the Netflix documentary “Strip Down, Rise Up”. We figured this would be PERFECT for highlighting women’s empowerment during Women’s History Month, which lasts through March. Essentially we thought this doc was about the athleticism of the women (and few men) that pole dance. The core strength, the leg strength, WOW.

But this was not the case. The feature went deep into the trauma of a group of women in particular that joined a 6 month long pole dancing class, and it was HEAVY to put it lightly. Jay was very uncomfortable, Mel was a little less affected, but nonetheless we were not very impressed.

Listen to see our champagne flute rating and to hear our virtual guests; we had Olympic Gymnast Aly Raisman and Real Housewife of Salt Lake City Whitney Rose!

Despite the more serious subject matter, we STILL HAD A BLAST AND MADE IT FUN (of course)!
