    Welcome To Hell: Fahey Younger

    Welcome To Hell: Fahey Younger

    Nelly remembered another friend of ours who’s very useful. Fahey Younger who used to be a famously weird comedian in a duo called Miss Itchy, now she’s a secretly weird real estate advocate. She has lots a words of comfort and good advice for renters and mortgage payers alike. So many kinds of Hell.

    Welcome To Hell: Steve Ellen

    Welcome To Hell: Steve Ellen

    We’re back in homeschooling hell at our place, so I’m sharing my office with my two kids, which might be why Nelly Thomas brought us a real live psychiatrist!


    He’s not even just a psychiatrist, he is many, many things. His name is Steve Ellen, but we can call him Professor Steve Ellen if we want to. You might’ve seen him on TV or heard him on the radio or bought his excellent book called Mental, which he wrote with comedian Catherine Deveney.

    Welcome To Hell: Helen Thorn

    Welcome To Hell: Helen Thorn

    The Scummy Mummies are comedy duo Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn. They’re based in London, but Helen’s quite Australian, and she joined Nelly and I to tell us how her lockdown’s going, given that she’s been at it about a month longer than us.
    She’s also got an extra degree of difficulty, in the form of a little relationship fracas that happened at the worst possible moment.


    Nelly and I will be having Friday night drinks from 6pm live on youtube, again this week, on the Australian True crime podcast channel, and this week we’ll be joined by a registered psychiatrist. That was Nelly’s idea.
    Is it an intervention?
    Don’t know, you’ll have to join us to see.

WFH crazy lady ,

Loving lockdown with you ladies

Love your work ladies especially the cackles of laughter. Love your honesty about everything. I can so relate to you (that’s a worry!) Was lying in bed with earphones in listening to you and woke my hubby up due to me cracking up laughing.

Vic Charlie Bee ,

Audio an issue

Great interviews and content but the audio needs a lot of work. At times it’s very hard to follow due the the voice fluctuations.

Wanitax ,
