    More and more young women are opting not to have sex. In today's episode, Holly, Mia and Jessie discuss the celebrity-endorsed female celibacy movement that’s so hot right now. 

    Plus, last week one very problematic famous person took off his shirt and partook in a very public washing away of his sins (in some very dirty water). Inside the rehabilitation of Russell Brand.  

    And, do you need anybody? Probably, yes. Is that a weakness, or a strength? Jessie wants to bust the myth of co-dependency.

My #1 podcast

Thanks ladies for getting me through some mentally tough days. Love to listen to the three of you and have felt very connnected to each of you at times. Mia and her ADHD diagnosis, Jessie’s mental health and all Holly’s socially progressive views and her off the charts empathy. Please keep doing what you do! I know you are being trolled with reviews for not constantly speaking about heavier content but I feel like that was addressed well by you all. Some of us come to you for a little fluff and some escapism. The world is dark enough! Thank you for bringing some sunshine! & thank you Luca for getting subscriber content onto Apple, obsessed!!!

Absolutely atrocious silence on Gaza

You can hear Mia’s eyes roll everytime the genocide in Palestine is brought up. She has no time to even sympathise about the tens of thousands of people who’ve been killed, displaced and/or maimed by Israel. So disappointed that my formerly favourite podcast have all but disappeared from the chat on “what women are talking about” and their founder is centring herself at every opportunity as an excuse not to address the concerns of Mamamia supporters. 🇵🇸 Free Palestine 🇵🇸
