    Introducing Restart: The Moment Madeleine West Realised Her Relationship Was Over

    Introducing Restart: The Moment Madeleine West Realised Her Relationship Was Over

    How do you start your life over again? We've launched a new show with Madeleine West and we want you to hear it. If you like it, make sure to subscribe to Restart wherever you get your podcasts.

    From the outside, Madeleine West had it all. A successful acting career, six beautiful kids, a life in Melbourne and a marriage of 15 years. Until a conversation about placemats made her question, 'Is this really what I want?'.

    It was in this moment that, Madeleine West chose to press 'Restart' on her life. It was hard- really hard in fact. So has it all been worth it?

    On the first episode of Restart, Madeleine explores something almost half of all Australian adults will go through at some point in their lives: divorce. Madeleine speaks to Divorce Coach & Legal and Separation Strategist (and divorcee) Nikki Parkinson, about the reality of a separation.

    PLUS has a truly heartbreaking and hilarious chat with comedian and podcast host Helen Thorne, who marriage became immediately unraveled after she found a love note in her husbands jacket pocket...that wasn't from her.

    No stone will be left unturned as Madeleine West explores what it is really like to restart your life.

    Introducing What I Eat When...

    Introducing What I Eat When...

    We're dropping into your feed to share an awesome episode of our new podcast, What I Eat When, with you: https://omny.fm/shows/what-i-eat-when/playlists/what-i-eat-when 

    What do you eat when... you're alone? You're homesick? You're celebrating?

    What you eat when says a lot about you, about your culture, your taste, your family, and what matters to you. Food is so much more than just fuel, it’s an excuse to express who we are and what connects us.

    What I Eat When is a Mamamia podcast that’s all about meals, moments, and memories. And on our first episode host Silvia Colloca is joined by self-confessed 'Crap Housewife' Jessica Rowe. 

    So what does Jess eat when she's on holiday? Or when she's pregnant?

    And why does she match her hats with the dinner she's making? 

    Although she doesn't like cooking, as she explains to Silvia, she still likes eating. And food holds a lot of memories for her. As you're about to find out...

    How To Handle Toxic Relatives

    How To Handle Toxic Relatives

    It seems everyone has a horror story of a relative who ruins family functions and leaves them feeling uncomfortable. But those family ties make it hard to walk away. We don’t get to choose our families – but we CAN choose how we respond. Chocked full of listener experiences and sage advice from Therapist Cynthia Morton on how to deal with the drama, this episode of The Well is for everyone who’s ever cried out ‘I can’t believe I’m related to them!’.

    Show notes

    The Well is hosted by author and columnist Rebecca Sparrow and Triple M Breakfast Host Robin Bailey.

    This show was produced by Ruth De Glas.

    When Did We All Become So Rude?

    When Did We All Become So Rude?

    Are we losing the art of listening? Is our addiction to our smart phones and social media making us rude? Why is it so hard to RSVP? Be on time? Or just say thank you? Whether you're at home at the dinner table, or out in the big bad world on public transport, we need a masterclass in etiquette for adults. So mind your P's’s and Q’s people - it's time to reclaim the lost art of manners.

    Lessons Of The Dying

    Lessons Of The Dying

    Life is short. Far too short for many. Don’t wait for something to bring you to your knees to remind you that each day is precious. Now is the time to learn the lessons of the dying and make joy in our lives a priority, right here, right now. In this very special episode of The Well we remember dear friends who have passed and the lessons that they have shared with us that will live forever. It might be too exhausting to live everyday as if it’s your last but what if there was a simple trick you could do every time you’re at a traffic light that could change your life? Why is it so important to take just 5 mins today to think about your own funeral? And why we should never, ever take aging for granted…

Love your podcast

Thoroughly enjoy listening to your discussions, tips and advice. Especially love your honesty and the real life experiences that you share.

Do your due diligence

I noticed you hosted Cynthia Morton, self-titled “Therapist”, who I can’t seem to find any qualifications for. Her own Linked In profile does not list any qualifications which would allow her to practice ethically as a therapist in Australia. She does not seem to be, for example, a registered psychologist, psychiatrist or qualified counsellor.

Amazing!

MIA FREEDMAN! Please for the love of all that is holy! Bring back THE WELL! 💕💕💕👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
