    Endless Parenting

    Endless Parenting

    Kids are living with their parents for longer. This is a fact that has Amanda and Anita questioning the amount of communication and guidance parents should provide to their children as they enter young adulthood. Once upon a time it was just an occasional call from a pay phone to let each other know you're still alive. Now, it is a constant stream of calls and texts. So, is there any harm in keeping your children close? Or should parental wisdom be put to as much use as possible...

    It's Never A Waste To Be Kind

    It's Never A Waste To Be Kind

    Amanda and Anita recently walked past a young woman who seemed to be upset. This got them thinking about what the best protocol is in situations like these. Should you approach a stranger to ask if they are alright? What if they are offended or just want a moment to themselves? From 'The Angel Of The Gap', to the invasion of privacy, and Anita's approach to offering her friendship and support - there are many lessons to be learned when it comes to offering kindness...

    The Rise Of Tradwife Influencers

    The Rise Of Tradwife Influencers

    If you’ve come across ‘Tradwife’ content on your social media feeds, you’re not the only one. These picture-perfect videos of women presenting as idealised visions of domestic wives are spreading far and wide. While the videos themselves may not be directly harmful or sinister, Amanda and Anita discuss what Tradwife content might signal. Is this what young women want? Why are so many men watching these videos? Where are our algorithms taking us?

    Is It Time To Reclaim 'Karen'?

    Is It Time To Reclaim 'Karen'?

    Two topics have enraged Amanda and Anita recently: Pronatalism, and the idea of a 'Karen'. In this episode they unpack both. The former is a belief that reproductive rates need to be increased, and the latter is the generic brand the internet uses to describe entitled middle aged women. What kind of paths could Pronatalism lead to? Is calling someone a 'Karen' just another way of silencing women's voices? Much to think about in this episode...

    To Gossip or Not To Gossip

    To Gossip or Not To Gossip

    TikTok rabbit holes can lead to strange, and sometimes insightful places. This week Amanda shares one particular video that got her thinking about gossip. It has become a dirty word - but should we give it more credit? Can it be positive and even productive? Or should a coin be put in a jar every time we talk about someone else?
    Where does that line get drawn...

    Fast Fashion Is Out, Sustainable Fashion Is In

    While Anita hems a pair of Amanda's pants for her, they talk about sustainable fashion. The fashion industry is a massive contributor to global carbon emissions, with fast fashion companies lowering prices and churning out micro-trends like there's no tomorrow. From picking up a needle and thread, capsule wardrobes, and going shopping in your own wardrobe - This episode discusses becoming consumers who look for quality over quantity...

Best chat

Considered, deep conversation; a pleasure to hear Amanda and Anita. Beautifully articulated, minus any trace of inflection and vocal fry. A listening pleasure. More, please!

Top podcast, but one deficit: last episode was sponsored by a gambling company. Why??? How incongruent and inappropriate and wrong.

Great podcast

I always look forward to hearing this.

Two impressive women with wonderful perspectives and insight.

Love the podcast A squared! Just listened to the ‘Upstream’ episode and while it’s truly awful to keep hearing about the terrible violence perpetrated against women, it was heartening to hear Anita’s deep insights into what can and should be done to support change. You’re both such impressive women with a beautiful friendship. Thank you for sharing some of that with us. I also loved the glimmer about Logan - I could picture the scene and can understand how Anita felt that way - delightful! I also shared with a colleague that working with her is my ongoing ‘glimmer’ as it’s such a positive, lovely sentiment. Thanks, gals!
