    The Gabby Petito Disappearance Unpacked

    The Gabby Petito Disappearance Unpacked

    It’s the story that could be the plot of a movie, but at its center is a 22-year-old woman named Gabby Petitro, whose remains have just been found. Should we be careful about obsessing over true crime stories in real-time?

    Plus, there’s a new movement on Instagram that helps you pretend you’ve been to places you haven’t been and done things you haven’t done. Is this leveling the playing field, or just a big con?  

    And, today many places are celebrating the return of a troubled sporting legend to the spotlight - but is it way too soon to forget what he did?

    Freedom Guilt And The Bennifer Question

    Freedom Guilt And The Bennifer Question

    You might’ve seen pictures of packed beaches across Sydney over the weekend, and you’d be forgiven for thinking they could’ve been taken before lockdown. It's highlighted an all too familiar divide between those who can, and those who cannot, depending on where they live. But this isn’t a scene only locked down Sydneysiders are familiar with. The weekend's 'beach shaming' speaks to how we’ve all enjoyed different privileges at different stages over the past 18 months, and how freedom has never been linear as we learn to live with Covid.

    Plus, people are having a lot of feelings about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s official red carpet reunion. Why?

    And why is talking about exercise so very… uncomfortable?

Love the podcast

Thoroughly enjoy listening to three intelligent, engaging and warm women discuss a broad range of topics. It’s similar to conversations I have with my close family and friends…..genuine, open and respectful. Thank you and keep up the amazing work.

Won’t listen again.

I tried this podcast for the first time today and within 20 minutes I was put off the podcast completely. It was the episode about Gabby Patito’s murder case. I felt the episode was a little tone deaf. It seemed like big ramble about the fact that perhaps Gabby was found so quickly was due to her being young white and attractive. I thought this was ridiculous. I mean there may be some truth but I felt the episode was tone deaf. Another host was saying that they thought the case was a hoax at first to get media attention. Something about that fact that a young 22 year old women’s body just being found the day before and the host still bringing up this idea that she’d thought it was a hoax just didn’t sit right with me. I won’t be listening again.

Not diverse enough - eco chamber of privilege

I enjoy listening to this podcast but I think maybe you need to add an extra host from a more diverse background. Although you disagree on some stuff, I think because you’re all of a similar demographic it might stop you from discussing some topics in depth. An alternative to getting a permanent new co-host, might be inviting a relevant temporary guest relating to certain topics. A good example is Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR Side note: stop talking about the royals. Don’t wire your brain to focus on the negative, I listen to this podcast weekly and enjoy it. Just mentioning a couple of things that I think would make it better.
