High Low with EmRata

EmRata / Sony Music Entertainment

Hi, I’m EmRata, aka Emily Ratajkowski. Maybe you know me from my work as an actress or model, or maybe you’ve read my bestselling book, My Body. I’m interested in marrying everything high and low-brow by talking about pop culture and happenings that may seem frivolous in a way that raises big questions. On this podcast, I’ll be talking about everything from politics, philosophy, and feminism to sex, TikTok, and relationships. Every Tuesday, I’ll host intimate conversations with special guests, including celebs, incredible authors, close friends, and people I admire. In the week’s second episode, I’ll talk about whatever’s happening in the world and what it’s making me think about, including anecdotes, personal opinions, and, ideally, some thought-provoking questions. Finally, you can subscribe to a third exclusive episode each week where you get to be part of the show. I’ll go through your comments and answer your DMs. My hope is that this series will be a place where you can come to have fun and take part in thoughtful discourse. High Low with EmRata is a Sony Music Entertainment and Bitch Era Media production. Subscribe to ‘High Low: Talk Back’ for exclusive extra episodes every week.

Our Editor's Take

Most people might know the host of the podcast High Low with EmRata from her modeling career. Emily Ratajkowski was only 14 when she signed her contract with Ford Models. Later, she became a familiar face thanks to her appearance in the 2013 music video for “Blurred Lines.” From there, she acted in films such as Gone Girl, We Are Your Friends, and I Feel Pretty. These appearances made her face even more recognizable. But her personality and opinions remained pretty much unknown.

In a 2020 essay, “Buying Myself Back,” Ratajkowski shared her struggles with stardom. She explained how being famous for her physical appearance instead of her thoughts was dehumanizing. That essay led to her writing the book My Body, a New York Times best seller. Finally, the process cultivated with her starting the podcast High Low with EmRata. The model was finally finding her voice and expressing her views like never before.

The podcast is part intimate celebrity interviews and part monologues. The host does not only talk about her experience as a woman in Hollywood. Instead, she brings up issues that occupy women's minds worldwide. It's a natural continuation of Ratajkowski's book, with topics such as empowerment, ageism, and women's health. As Ratajkowski notes in her popular TikTok videos, she's at a stage in her life where she wants to express anger. The host feels that so much of the female experience is prone to fetishization. But anger is the one thing that's impossible to sexualize, and she feels women should express it more.

In her talks with stars like Amber Rose and Alex Cooper, the host gets deeper into gender identity. In the episodes she hosts alone, she focuses on one topic bothering her. Ratajkowski never censors her views, as unpopular as they might be. High Low with EmRata shows a different side to this celebrity.
