    Steph's mum makes us all cry ❤️

    In Steph & Laura's catch up today, they revisit something from a few weeks ago where Steph opened up about an insecurity that stemmed from childhood. We hear from Steph's mum about how this made her feel as a parent listening to that episode, and she shares some really beautiful words that got us all emotional.

    Plus, we open our KICMAIL which includes some cheesy pick up lines and what "good evening" and "good night" really means!

    Raising your child to be empowered by their disability - KICBUMP with Hannah Vasicek

    * TRIGGER WARNING: This episode discusses abortion. For support, contact Beyond Blue on 1300 224 636 *

    If you've been a KICPOD listener for a while, you may have heard the unbelievable story of two sisters Rachel & Hannah who escaped attempted human trafficking back in 2016. In today's KICBUMP episode, Hannah shares her incredible story of how her frightening pregnancy diagnoses ended up giving her the beautiful gift of her now 3 year old daughter Vienna.

    During her pregnancy, Hannah's baby was diagnosed with Amniotic Band Sydnrome, and despite doctors suggesting multiple times that she shouldn't follow through with the pregnancy, Hannah stuck to what she knew was right. In this episode, she speaks about what it was like hearing the news that her baby would be born without her right arm, how she came to the decision to go ahead with her pregnancy, and how she wants to raise her daughter to feel empowered rather than limited by her disability.

    Steph confronts Toni Lodge

    Steph confronts Toni Lodge

    You may know the bloody hilarious and wonderful Toni Lodge from being one half of the hugely successful 'Toni & Ryan' podcast. She joins us on today's episode of KICPOD to not only make us nearly wee our pants with laughter, but also to share some incredible wisdom and life lessons she has learnt.

    We speak with Toni about why listening is sometimes better than fixing a problem, why honesty can get you so much further in life than people pleasing, and how to speak to someone who is grieving... but then we also speak to her about arguably just as important stuff like lasering your pubes, semen flavoured lipgloss and the extremely offensive Harry Potter sorting hat Toni gave Steph! And oh boy she wasn't happy.

    If you'd like more of Toni Lodge, check out her book 'I Don't Need Therapy', and of course her amazing podcast 'Toni & Ryan' on Spotify.

    "An Autism diagnoses is not devastating" - KICBUMP with Em Rusciano

    "An Autism diagnoses is not devastating" - KICBUMP with Em Rusciano

    Em Rusciano wears just about every hat - she's a comedian, podcast host, writer, TV presenter, singer and former radio host, but on top of all of that she's also a mum of 3. All of her children happen to be neurodiverse, and she herself was recently diagnosed with ADHD and Autism.

    Em has shockingly faced public criticism for opening up about her diagnosis, with people claiming that it's for attention. In today's episode, we discuss why this is ludicrous and why we should be normalising the topic, helping mums of neurodiverse children feel more supported and also feel more comfortable getting tested themselves.

    For more of Em Rusciano, check out her podcast Emsolation.

Ok but not great

I use to enjoy this podcast but lately it’s been a little boring and find myself mind wandering and not really listening.

Gone downhill

I used to love this pod, but since their transition to Listnr it is so different and I really am sad at how much it’s changed!
The podcast titles are now super click-baity and sound like Daily Mail articles 🫠 I’d be genuinely curious to know if Steph and Laura are happy with how things have changed, because the direction the pod has gone in feels quite different to the brand they’ve been building for so long!
The interviews with guests are so short now as well, it feels so jarring when they wrap up the interviews after barely any chat!
I hope someone at KIC reads all the chat about how people don’t like the new format - I’d be so happy to have things revised back to be more like the old format
