    It’s been a rollercoaster week for Australian women with an outcry about our safety after the Westfield Bondi Junction tragedy was paired with the relief after the long-awaited verdict, the Bruce Lehrmann defamation case. We unpack.

    Plus, is it hot in here? Why so many women are deep in romantasy novels involving faeries (yep... that's how the books are spelling it) and some very sexy scenes. Claire Murphy shares a sultry taste of what you're missing out on.

    And, Em Ratajkowski is empowering women to change the narrative of divorce, by turning their engagement rings into a new piece of jewellery. So who does the jewellery "belongs to" and what other women have done post divorce?

    Australians are grieving the unthinkable acts that took place at Westfield Bondi Junction over the weekend. We discuss why this feels so close to home for so many of us. 

    Plus, the verdict's in for Bruce Lehrmann's defamation case. But what's really at the heart of today's news is the ongoing pursuit of justice for Lisa Wilkinson and Brittany Higgins.

    And, on a lighter note, Clare Stephens has gone deep into the chaotic rebranding of former Dance Moms star Jojo Siwa, or rather the "CFO of gay pop". Confused? Don't worry we'll fill you in.

    Quiet On Set: The Kids Are Not Ok

    Quiet On Set: The Kids Are Not Ok

    Subscribe to Mamamia

    Revelations from the new docuseries Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV, are making many millennials and Gen Zs re-think their favourite childhood shows. From the bizarre and uncomfortable sexual innuendos... to Drake Bell's heartbreakingly raw story of sexual abuse, we unpack this important documentary. 

    Plus, Jessie dives into the surprising reasons why so many people are not having kids anymore.

    And, a disaster Friday morning, a story about a childhood home and the little treat that turned into a little chore... it's our best and worst of the week.

Sophiefran ,

Great listen but

I love this pod and listen to every ep, but when either Holly, Mia or Jesse are away I feel as though the podcast should just be done with the two regular hosts instead of putting someone else into the mix as it doesn’t flow as well and is not as enjoyable to listen to.

Disappointed with the new Friday show

I mostly listen to mamamia to hear the day’s top news stories as I think the hosts do a wonderful job at recapping major events.

HOWEVER, I am disappointed to hear that Friday’s episode is no longer news content driven & instead an “exciting new deep dive” aka. just another prerecorded gap filler like Tuesday & Thursday. I understand it might not be practical to record an episode & upload on a Friday afternoon at the end of a work week, but now only 2 out of the 5 episode days are actually worth listening to IMO. Would love to see the original format return

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Holly you are so articulate and cut through the waffle.
