    The Epidemic Of Broken Friendships

    The Epidemic Of Broken Friendships

    Families are falling out on social media and there are friends going quiet in the group chat, as the divide between the vaccinated and unvaccinated widens. As we approach Christmas, is it possible to bridge these gaps, can friendships broken in the pandemic be repaired? 

    Dating apps have people describing their interests as “dismantling the patriarchy” and “eating the rich”. But what does that… really mean? 

    And a very candid conversation about picnics.

    The Performative Hot Mums Of Instagram

    The Performative Hot Mums Of Instagram

    Everyone has become momentarily obsessed with two ridiculously conventionally attractive women - Megan Fox and Kourtney Kardashian. This week they revealed they're starring in a new campaign for Kim K’s very successful underwear brand, Skimms. Are they defying our puritanical and repressed notions of what a MOTHER should be? What does their Skimms photoshoot tell us about performed sexuality and the male gaze? 

    Plus, have you seen the hashtag #75Hard doing the rounds? What is it, why is it toxic, and how are we rebelling against it?

    And… our best and worst of the week, including the story of a young Sydney man called Nicholas Drummond, and the 'next big thing'.

    Riots And Earthquakes And Covid, Oh My

    Riots and earthquakes and covid, oh my. Melbourne, you’re having a very extra week. We're attempting to unpack and explain the recent riots in the city of Melbourne. Are the tradies really to blame?

    Plus, as more and more artists identify as non-binary, where does that leave the very binary categories of awards shows?

    And, a very personal question about what you do in the shower...

    The Gabby Petito Disappearance Unpacked

    The Gabby Petito Disappearance Unpacked

    It’s the story that could be the plot of a movie, but at its center is a 22-year-old woman named Gabby Petitro, whose remains have just been found. Should we be careful about obsessing over true crime stories in real-time?

    Plus, there’s a new movement on Instagram that helps you pretend you’ve been to places you haven’t been and done things you haven’t done. Is this leveling the playing field, or just a big con?  

    And, today many places are celebrating the return of a troubled sporting legend to the spotlight - but is it way too soon to forget what he did?

Love the podcast

Thoroughly enjoy listening to three intelligent, engaging and warm women discuss a broad range of topics. It’s similar to conversations I have with my close family and friends…..genuine, open and respectful. Thank you and keep up the amazing work.

Bonus ep just an ad

I think you should be more transparent when a bonus episode is an ad I just listened to the nine perfect strangers one and you could tell by the voices it was an advertorial very morning tv

MoneyBirdie ,

This show was making me stupid

Ahhh I fully expected Mama Mia to be another tedious woke platform... and unfortunately, ultimately, I was right.

If you’re looking for interesting, rational, heterodox discussion - this is not the place for you.

Infatuation with the politics of identity isn’t edgy - it’s just adding to a noisy, divided world. See ya later ladies 👋
