From the trope of feminist 'bra-burning' to how uncomfortable underwires can be, to the way breasts are used to sell ethical causes.

(Another note: This was first broadcast and recorded some time before, when the Marriage Plebiscite was yet to be blocked in Parliament and was very much on everyone's lips. The above technical issues meant that we could not bring it to you before now.)
