    The Start of Quarantales, A Normal People U-Turn and Isolation Hair Cuts

    The Start of Quarantales, A Normal People U-Turn and Isolation Hair Cuts

    With a week of Covid confusion, we are back with some (hilarious) Quarantales (from screaming neighbours to Blackbird Omens), a follow up of that Normal People conversation, a conversation about '90s films (and if we can get past some problematic aspects) as well as discussing the important topic of... are fringe trims the new foreplay? Plus THE DISCOVERY OF SAUSAGE ROLLS (kind of).

    Things we spoke about:

    #56 Self Isolation Kicking In, A Craft Addiction & A Meg Ryan Marathon

    This week self isolation finally kicks in, and we had to avoid not renaming the podcast 'The Cheek of It'. All grumbles aside, we're thrown into Easter weekend nattering (and June's over-indulgent egg hunt), our new favourite (and least favourite) rom-coms, Michael NOT Martin Sheen, the great pickle shortage of 2020, Charlotte's new crafting passion and a very special Betty Magazine charity relaunch. Thank you so much for tuning in, and as always- we hope you're staying safe and looking after each other.

Calming & Warm!

I got into this podcast a little bit late, but binged through it! I would look forward to playing it while in my art studio, In a weird way it comforted my anxiety and helped me focus with positive toned background noise! The hostesses chemistry is lovely and heart felt. Thank you so much! Wish it had continued!

Relatable and Fun

I really like the conversational tone, the relatable topics addressed and the overall positive vibes. Even after a short time this podcast is already creating community and friendships. Definitely would recommend!

LP450 ,

Lovely but too quiet!

I really enjoy this podcast and the topics are so interesting! Only trouble is that even with my volume all the way up I strain to hear what they’re saying. I guess it makes me listen harder??
