    Meet Nick

    Meet Nick

    Hey Outlouders!

    It’s Holly dropping in your ears to tell you about our exciting dating podcast, Eligible.

    We all know that dating apps can be deceiving. You’re swiping left and right at someone’s picture but you actually don’t know what the person is really like.

    That’s why we came up with the idea of getting to know the person by hearing their voice before you see their picture. 

    This is the very first episode of Eligible and we’re kicking off the world’s first podcast dating show with our first single, Nick.

    Here's a little bit about him...

    Age: 26

    Occupation: Primary school teacher

    Top three things he wants from a relationship: Intimacy, fun, holidays

    How he describes himself:  Genuine, deep thinking, relaxed, empathetic

    Best quality: Kind

    Worst quality: Stubborn

    What he hopes to get out of this experience: I hope to meet people that have a genuine interest in what they’ve heard about me and are open to a meaningful connection.

    If you’d like to get to know Nick better, head to www.mamamia.com.au/eligible, enter the code word you heard in the episode and you'll get access to Nick’s details and photo.

    This episode is brought to you by Fantastic Furniture, the perfect place to find the heart of your home.

    HOW DOES THE SHOW WORK?

    Every Friday our host, Rachel Corbett, sits down with an eligible single to have the awkward first date for you so you can get a sense of whether this person is worth your time.  She'll also do the reference checks by calling up a few of the women in the eligible single's life to find out what they're really like.

    At the end of each episode, if you like what you hear, we'll give you a secret code you can enter at mamamia.com.au/eligible so you can see what your new love interest looks like and how to contact them. 

    The rest is up to cupid!

    Caroline Flack And Who's To Blame

    Caroline Flack And Who's To Blame

    Mikhaela Peterson recently announced that her father, author Jordan Peterson, who is known for taking issue with political correctness and condemning feminism is recovering from addiction to tranquillisers and a near-death experience. So does the fact that Peterson’s life is not in order, negate all his advice? 

    Also, “I’m waiting for him to propose” and “I don’t want to pressure him”  are phrases we hear women say in heterosexual relationships. So Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg has asked, why are women still struggling to take charge when it comes to marriage and dating? 

    Plus, the world is in shock after former Love Island UK host Caroline Flack died by suicide on February 15th. Caroline has been no stranger to the incessant bullying fuelled by tabloid culture, so who is to blame for Caroline’s death?

    If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, get help immediately.  Call Lifeline at 13 11 14.

    The Female Sex Scene We Never Thought We'd See

    The Female Sex Scene We Never Thought We'd See

    In a recent tweet, Bettina Arndt shared a poster from Griffith University’s dating manual which highlights a person’s right to say no to sex. In her words, she claimed that the manual encourages women to be “uncaring demanding bitches”. Despite her undisputed anti-feminist sentiment, the tweet made us ask, is Griffith University’s dating manual more partial towards women?

    Also, vulvas and orgasms on Gwyneth Paltrow’s third episode of the Netflix series ‘the goop lab’ has got us all wondering, is female sexuality witnessing a big cultural moment? 

    Plus, our Quicky producer Melanie Tait tweeted a post asking, is it silly to gift a mum a facial or massage without organising for someone to look after her kids? We discuss.

    Weinstein’s Lawyer Just Told Us What She Really Thinks

    Weinstein’s Lawyer Just Told Us What She Really Thinks

    Not surprisingly, the ratings for this year’s Academy Awards were at an all-time low. Joaquin Phoenix’s veganism speech felt a tad bit preachy to some and we’re asking, why is it that almost every Oscar acceptance speech has to adopt some sort of a political or ‘woke’ tone to make it memorable?

    Also, more than 90 women have accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault. Donna Rotunno is Harvey’s female defense lawyer and her interview with the New York Times's Meghan Toohey has got everyone (including us) talking. What lies in the mind of Weinstein’s female defender?

    Plus, an ad was banned from screening during the Oscars that showed the reality of what happens to a woman’s body after she has a baby. Was it really all that shocking? We discuss.

    Taylor Swift And The "Annoying Woman" Syndrome

    Taylor Swift And The "Annoying Woman" Syndrome

    Swifties are buzzing because Taylor Swift’s documentary ‘Miss Americana’ is now out but her haters have called it a contrived attempt to self-victimise. So we’re wondering, what is the “annoying woman syndrome” and does Taylor Swift have it?

    Also, do you use “as previously discussed” and “I’m balancing a lot this week” when emailing someone at work? If so, you could be considered passive aggressive but do we really know what these phrases mean? 

    Plus, are you an alarm snoozer? Is meditation a part of your morning ritual? What about laying your work clothes out the night before? Jessie, Mia, and Holly talk: morning routines.

    The J. Lo And Shakira Debate That Split The Podcast

    The J. Lo And Shakira Debate That Split The Podcast

    Holly’s back so a dip into the royal family is almost inescapable. In a TV interview this week, Meghan Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle, said that he will talk to the media every 30 days until his daughter calls him back. Should media outlets be held accountable for playing a role in fueling family feuds? 

    Also, Richard Di Natale; the doctor turned Greens leader, announced his retirement from politics, saying that he wants to spend more time with his young sons, Luca and Ben, and wife Lucy. So should we worry about how our politician’s schedules impact their lives and families?

    Plus, the American Superbowl halftime show aired on Sunday and it is full of implicit political messaging, a call for cultural diversity, and booty shaking. But was J. Lo and Shakira’s performance empowering or depressing?

Customer Reviews

Autefrum2 ,

I love that we don’t always agree

I am a pretty devoted listener these days but took awhile to warm to the series. I love the diversity of topics discussed and I particularly like that I rarely agree with much of what is said.... keep it the curious woman’s podcast with the odd bit of pop culture to keep me connected to the younger folk.

TALB2019 ,

UGHHH

Please stop talking about taylor swift ughhhh
can we have some substance

RSTAAC ,

Happy!!!

I just wanted to say that I am so happy Holly is back!
She brings such a warm vibe to to show :)
