    What We Now Know About The Royal Oprah Interview

    What We Now Know About The Royal Oprah Interview

    Australia has a new Deputy Prime Minister. After this morning's National Party leadership spill,  Michael McCormack has been ousted and Barnaby Joyce is back in. So why should you care?

    Plus, we've learned more about what was going on behind the scenes of Meghan and Harry’s Oprah interview. If Prince Charles decides Archie and Lilibet aren’t going to get titles, will it be about modernising the monarchy, or is it a stab at Harry for abandoning royal duties?

    And, it’s official, the way to achieve your health goals is simple... lower your standards.

    What Happens When Mean Girls Grow Up

    What Happens When Mean Girls Grow Up

    Billie Eilish is in hot water this week. The 19-year-old singer has been accused of queer-baiting, racial slurs, and she's being called out for having a problematic new boyfriend. So what's going on, what is the internet saying about it, and what exactly is 'queer-baiting'.

    Plus, do you have an adult bully in your life? If you do, what do you do about it?

    And, our best and worst of the week, including finding joy 'in the moment', and a sentimental Holly.

    The Birth Control Conversation No One Wants To Have

    The Birth Control Conversation No One Wants To Have

    Did you miss the Four Corners special on Scomo and QAnon? We watched it so you don't have to, and we're breaking down the controversial investigation to tell you if you really should be outraged.

    Plus, we need to talk about Lorde's Bum. It's divided us. After the singer dropped her first song in 4 years, Mia thinks it's the single's cover art that everyone is talking about, not the amazing song she wrote. Holly and Jessie think it's a bold and empowered statement. Why can't we look away, and what does it mean? 

    And, what is birth control counselling? A new trial could see pharmacists offer private birth control counselling to young women who turn up wanting to purchase emergency contraception. So how would it actually work? And what has the reaction to it been?

    BONUS: The Kennedy Women: When Jackie Met Jack

    No show today for the public holiday, instead, we wanted to give you an episode of the latest season of Extraordinary Stories. It's the podcast that dives deep on the stories you thought you knew, told by the women who really do, and it's hosted by the producer of Mamamia Out Loud, Emma Gillespie. Extraordinary Stories is available exclusive to MPlus members, head to mamamia.com.au/mplus or download the Mamamia app to find out more 

    -

    In this season of Extraordinary Stories, we’re taking a closer look at the women who married into America’s most influential family, the Kennedy’s. From incredible triumph to unspeakable loss, these women weren’t just on the sidelines of history, they were living it. Whilst it may be their husband’s names inked in modern textbooks, some of the most extraordinary stories of their time belong to the women. Jacqueline Bouvier, Ethel Skakel and Carolyn Bessette. In our first episode, we're starting with the woman whose pink Chanel suit and pillbox hat is imprinted memories around the world. Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis.

    Time’s Up For The "Pervs" Of Australian Swimming

    Time’s Up For The "Pervs" Of Australian Swimming

    Maddie Groves is one of Australia’s best swimmers, so why has she pulled out of Olympic Trials,  and in doing so basically burned her chance to compete at the Olympics? And how has she flipped the tables with a tweet?

    Plus, what is Main Character Syndrome, and do you have it? Are you the main character in your circles or more of a trusty sidekick?

    And, our best and worst of the week, including a BIG announcement from Holly.

    The Anti Self-Care Hero We Need This Week

    The Anti Self-Care Hero We Need This Week

    The Biloela Family. It's the story we can't look away from this week. What is going on, more importantly, why, and how can this be happening in Australia? 

    Plus, two of the shows everyone’s obsessed with at the moment tell us something about the kind of people we want to see on screens at the moment - It’s the rise of the self-care anti-hero. 

    And, does toxic femininity exist? What does it really mean, and how is it impacted by toxic masculinity? Are women raised to hate each other?

The Best

Firstly if it wasn’t for Covid we wouldn’t have this amazing podcast 3 times a week. One of only a few good things to come out of Covid. But also thank god for M Plus because now we get it DAILY. Yaaaaaaassssss 💃🏻💃🏻
