To celebrate the release of BUST's brand new April/May 2017 issue (on stands now!) we've released a special bonus episode of our Poptarts podcast in which managing editor Emily Rems reads one extra excellent feature story from the magazine.

In "Great Expectations" by Marisa Crawford, the author examines 30 years of abortion on film, from Dirty Dancing to Grandma.


To access the episode, just click on over the Poptarts page on iTunes. And while you're there, please rate and review the show. It really helps us get the word out.
