    Bonus: A look back at "Imposter Syndrome Over 40"

    Bonus: A look back at "Imposter Syndrome Over 40"

    Laura is digging up more gems from the archives and this time she is keen to chat about confidence after 40 and imposter syndrome. 

    We both imagined that by the age of 41 we would have all the confidence of Donald Trump but sadly for us, this hasn’t happened. So why do so many women of our age still struggle with a lack of confidence or ‘imposter syndrome’? Where did it all begin? We share our experiences and chat to former architect, life and business coach Ruby Marsh, about how to get over ourselves and defeat our insecurities.

    Off the Cuff - The pro-life debate: but whose life matters?

    You have probably noticed that we LOVE a good old chat about the news, pop culture, what’s happening in our own worlds and how we feel about it all. In this weekly mini series that we’re calling, Off The Cuff, we bring you the top bits of news and life learnings that have caught our attention. Some good, some bad, some downright emotional.

    Enjoy!

    This week:

    We do a deep dive into the leaked document that suggests the US Supreme Court could soon vote to overturn a landmark ruling that grants Americans the constitutional right to an abortion. We share lots of pro choice tweets and opinions that showcase what’s really going on here (clue: the powerful old, rich, white dinosaurs don’t care about babies) and we both have BIG feelings to chat through.

    Bonus: A look back at "Life, do you really have to live your best?"

    Laura is digging up more gems from the Oversubscribed archives, this time she wants to talk about how pandemic life has changed how we view 'living our best lives' Do we care less now than we did in 2019? Listen to find out.

    In this episode, we’re talking about the concept of ‘living your best life’. We want to know whether we really need to live our best lives or if a mediocre one is perfectly fine. We’re also debating whether the pressure to live our best lives is really just causing us anxiety in the pretty good lives we may already have.

Still love tuning in!

I’ve been tuning in from the beginning and I still love listening to you both chat about such a diverse and interesting range of topics. Some serious and some light hearted. All so relatable and current. Bring on season five!!!

Good Content & Also Too Long

I’ll look to see if there are any interesting looking new eps when I’m bored, because the actual style of their coverage gets 5 stars on the interesting scale! If I didn’t have to wait for 6-7 minutes at the beginning of each episode listening to a lot of random stuff unrelated to the topic, I’d subscribe.

I would invite the hosts to decide whether they want to host a news-updatedatey/current-affairs/recommendations type of podcast or a podcast that provides coverage of something going on in the world as in-depth as they possibly can in less than 20 minutes (including advertising time) because they’d do either well.

When they try to mix these two different types of batter together though, the cake doesn’t bake & whatever weird looking concoction that emerges from the oven in it’s place just tastes like just another one of those million other podcasts out there that make me feel more stressed about the (already) incredibly short length of my day.

Relatable, easy listening! You’ll enjoy these podcasts!

Love listening to Alana and Laura, such a breath of fresh air - such relatable topics I feel like I’m sitting down with my girlfriends to chat! Listen to one ladies - you’ll enjoy them!
