    If you picked up a magazine in the late 80s or early 90s, chances are Alison Brahe Daddo was on it. Her face (and hair) were iconic to a generation of Australian women.

    So what happens when a model grows up, has a family, and turns 50? What happens when her face and body and identity changes? Alison Daddo (nee Brahe) has a lot to say about getting older in a culture obsessed with youth.

    THE END BITS:

    With thanks to Ali Daddo.

    Her book Queen Menopause is available now at all good bookstores.

    What Really Happened To Melissa Caddick?

    What Really Happened To Melissa Caddick?

    Want more with Kate? Find her extra No Filter episode here. 

    When Melissa Caddick went missing in November 2020, Kate McClymont knew that there was more to the story than what was being reported. Kate, the Chief Investigative Reporter at the Sydney Morning Herald, has spent her career breaking news about fraud, corruption, and more. So what looked like a fairly standard missing person’s case to the average person, looked like a lot more to Kate McClymont.

    And when a human foot washed up on a South Coast beach months later? A whole other line of investigation opened into what actually happened to Melissa Caddick.

    Kate is a co-host of a podcast called Liar Liar that’s all about this case, and in her signature forensic style, she’s uncovered a bunch of disturbing, astonishing information about the life and disappearance of a wealthy woman who wasn’t at all what she seemed.

    THE END BITS:

    With thanks to Kate McClymont

    The Untold Story Of Reggie From Big Brother

    The Untold Story Of Reggie From Big Brother

    Australia first fell in love with Reggie Bird in 2003, when she became the third person in Australia to win Big Brother. The whole country knew Reggie’s name. They knew she was married, ran a fish and chip shop in Tasmania, and wore her heart on her sleeve. And that’s why we loved her.

    But a lot has changed in Reggie’s life since 2003. And she’s continued to walk an unexpectedly fine line between public and private life over the past two decades…She’s been so famous she couldn’t work, then she’s HAD to work after getting scammed out of $40,000. She’s been an air hostess, a mum, lost her eyesight, gotten divorced, and now she’s chosen to go BACK on Big Brother. She joins Mia to talk about it all…

    END BITS:

    Support Mamamia here.

    With thanks to Reggie Bird.

    You can watch Reggie on Big Brother, Mon-Wed @ 7.30 pm on Channel 7 and 7plus.

Love but over the split podcasts

I love this podcast but now we have to become a member to listen to more of the stories. Will continue listening but it is disappointing. I was a member previously but found the platform wasn’t good (didn’t continue playing the episodes which is hard when driving)
