    And, our best and worst of the week… ranging from midnight dashes to Mia’s house, friend reunions, and Abba medleys

    Lisa Wilkinson’s Exit & ‘Targeted Toxicity’

    Lisa Wilkinson’s Exit & ‘Targeted Toxicity’

    Subscribe to Mamamia

    Lisa Wilkinson has announced she's leaving The Project. What does it tell us about 'targeted toxicity' and the extra job women in the public eye unwittingly sign up for?

    Plus, David Beckham, Robbie Williams, and why a comedian is shredding $10,000 over the very controversial football world cup.  And, is leisure time inherently sexist? The double standard when it comes to 'me time' that's got Jessie riled up.

    Trump Is Running Again And Nobody Panic

    Trump Is Running Again And Nobody Panic

    Subscribe to Mamamia

    It's official. Donald Trump is back. The former U.S President has announced his intention to run for the Republican party candidacy for the 2024 election. Some of us are freaking out, but Mia thinks she can reassure us. 

    Plus, a millennial icon has declared ‘aging is fully in’, and painted her hair grey to do it. So is it empowering, or insulting?   And, the latest innovations in artificial intelligence have us wondering if you could ‘fake’ a digital interaction with a lost loved one, would you? Should you?

    The Casting Decision That’s Killed The Crown

    The Casting Decision That’s Killed The Crown

    Vote for Mamamia Out Loud as Listeners' Choice in the Australian Podcast Awards

    What happens to the people we canceled during the pandemic? An article reminding us about a prominent anti-vaxxer has left us wondering.  Plus, the latest on-screen portrayal of Prince Charles has sparked a chaotic theory about the relationship between the royals and Netflix juggernaut, The Crown.  And… what refusing to adopt new technologies in the workplace really says about you. Subscribe to Mamamia

    The End Bits:

    Read Holly's article about Dominic West.


    This week, we were all momentarily distracted by an old-fashioned celebrity cheating scandal.

    RECOMMENDATIONS: Mia wants you to listen to have a marriage sabbatical (or at least listen to The Quicky to learn the ins and outs).

Insightful | Real | Brilliant |Honest | Roar

Thank you Jesse, Hollie & Mia for the delivery of your discussions - not only insightful but so in touch with modern woman and all the labels we place on ourselves. I look forward to walking with you in my ears and often nodding in agreement, laughing or crying. Keep up your wonderful work & thank you for keeping it real.

Love this podcast

Best accompaniment to my commute. Really always appreciate all their points of view - feels like I’m in the car nattering away with friends. Keep up the good work ladies!

CRZITMAN ,

So many better ways to waste your time!

Extreme bias, mind numbing, one sided discussion usually angled at how men are to blame for everything that’s wrong with the world. Rather listen to a school teacher drag their nails up and down a blackboard all day.
