    Jack Black And The Joke That Ended A Tour

    Jack Black And The Joke That Ended A Tour

    Subscribe to Mamamia
    A bad-taste joke and calls for deportation. We discuss the backlash after Jack Black's band mate from Tenacious D made a joke about Donald Trump's attempted assassination. Is it reaction warranted or an overreaction? 
    Plus, Violet Affleck for President. We unpack why everyone’s talking about Ben Affleck and Jen Garner's oldest daughter.  
    And, if you don’t watch out these women will be your bosses - the TikTok trend that’s somehow connected Holly, Mia & Jessie with Andrew Tate (yes.. you read that correctly).

    SUBSCRIBER: The Royal Rumour That's Been Scrubbed From The Internet

    There's a royal gossip story that has been scrubbed from the internet but the speculation and rumours that Prince William had an affair was once a hot headline for many U.K. press outlets. 

    In this royal episode, Holly explains who the Marchioness of Cholmondeley is (plus how to say it and what that title even means), how the rumoured scandal began, and why all of a sudden there is almost no trace of the rumours on the internet.

    Are you feeling rundown? Tired? Burnt out? Are you feeling like you’re hanging by your last nerve and like you might lose it if one more person asks you for something? Welcome to the Mid Year Means, we're here to tell you all about it. 
    Plus… three things to watch over the weekend including a very irritating but hypnotic walk down memory lane, an international game show and a doco that comes with a million little wriggly sperm. 
    And… a recipe literally anyone (including Jessie and Mia) could make, a brain with holes in it and Jessie's epic weekend (again). It's our best and worst of the week.

    SUBSCRIBER: We're Desperate To Talk About A Family Affair

    Age-gap relationships are having a moment in Hollywood rom coms, and the latest film people can't stop talking about is A Family Affair.

    In this episode, we unpack what we really thought of the film that stars Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman, from the good, the bad and the insufferable moments. Plus, we discuss the power of films written by women, for the female fantasy (ground-breaking).

Aliciadenis ,

Candid conversations, banter and respectful disagreements. A great concept!!

I absolutely love this podcast! With three incredible women from diverse age groups and stages of life, this show offers a refreshing and insightful perspective on a broad range of topics. The tagline, "what women are actually talking about," couldn't be more fitting. Each episode is a rich tapestry of conversations that are not only informative but also deeply engaging. I appreciate how the hosts tackle various subjects with authenticity and depth. Even when I don't always agree with their views, I find myself better informed and more prepared to engage in meaningful conversations with people from all walks of life. Their discussions cover everything from current events and cultural trends to personal growth and professional development, all with a unique and relatable touch. The dynamic between the hosts is fantastic. Their differing perspectives bring a well-rounded and comprehensive take on each topic. It's like having a seat at the table with friends who are intelligent, witty, and genuinely passionate about the issues they discuss. This podcast has become an essential part of my routine, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to broaden their horizons and engage with what women are truly talking about today. Keep up the amazing work!

Gone down hill

Out of touch and hypocritical. I’m a longtime listener and I’m struggling to get through episodes. Get in touch with people outside of your bubble.

Represents a certain type of woman

I like the podcast and some of the deeper topics. But I often feel they are just so privileged - with amazingly supportive families and partners - that their opinions often lack any insight into how tough life can really be for other women. So I often come away feeling bad about myself or like I’m not represented and I don’t like that! You will like mamamia podcasts if you’re a married (or coupled) heterosexual homeowner woman.
