Episode 40 :: Michelle Shimmy



This week on the podcast, we have Aussie pole babe Michelle Shimmy. On this episode, we talk about how Shimmy transitioned from corporate law to professional pole dancer, what inspired her and her sister, Maddie Sparkle, to create two of the world’s most entertaining pole competitions, her view on feminism and pole dance, her deep love of the pole community, and dealing with haters on social media.
