    Episode 171: Fashion Special with Does My Bum Look 40 and Style Mum

    What is a buffet dress, and why do we all need one? How can the Power of Three rule transform our wardrobe? Is leopard print over? Answering all these questions are Instagram superstars Kat Farmer and Pascale Banks, aka @doesmybumlook40 and @style_mum! 
    We talk all things fashion, from predictions for what this year’s Zara spotty dress will be to our favourite jogging bottoms. Plus we find out which essential items it’s worth investing in. 


    Then it’s time for mum chat. Pascale talks about parenting twin boys, and Kat shares her experience of dealing with autism and Asperger’s syndrome. We get some tips on coping with the teenage years, and there’s a Heated Debate about how to manage homework.

    Episode 170: Comedy, Gay Parenting and IVF with Jen Brister

    Episode 170: Comedy, Gay Parenting and IVF with Jen Brister

    It's an eventful episode this week as we chat to hilarious comedian Jen Brister, and accidentally lock her in Ellie's lounge. 


    Listen to Jen chat about being a gay parent and mum of twins, while becoming increasingly desperate for a piss. Will we be rescued in time, or will Jen be forced to wee in Ellie's son's fireman's bucket? Tune in to find out and enjoy some exciting cameos. Do listen right to the end for a surprising twist.


    Jen tells us what it's like to have babies with another lady, and how you decide who gets to be (has to be?) the pregnant one. We also find out why choosing sperm with your partner is even harder than deciding what to watch on Netflix. 


    Later on, Jen shares the most honest advice about kids and sleep we've ever heard. Ellie and Helen try to explain what Match Attax is, and to guide Jen through her kids starting school. Predictably they fail on both counts. 


    Jen's brilliant book, The Other Mother, is out now. Follow her @jenbrister and visit her website jenbrister.co.uk.

    Episode 169: Kate Thornton Special

    Episode 169: Kate Thornton Special

    Our guest for this episode is the legendary Kate Thornton! She tells us all about her amazing career - from editing Smash Hits at the age of 21 and hosting the X-Factor to producing her fantastic podcast, White Wine Question Time. 


    We also cover some tricky topics, such as: how much pressure should we put on our kids to work hard at school? What's the best way to cope when you're a neat freak and your partner is messy? And how do you deal with a blister on your nubbin? Kate Thornton has the answer to all these burning questions and more. 


    There's also a bit of serious chat, as Helen discusses her recent trip to Australia, and we talk about the work of the brilliant charity Practical Action. They are working to turn the tables on climate change in North Darfur. Donate before 9 March and your gift will be matched by the UK government - so it will go twice as far. Find out more at practicalaction.org.


    As usual, it quickly descends back into filth and nonsense, and we finish with some Scummy Mummy Confessions. 


    The excellent White Wine Question Time is available now, wherever you get your podcasts. Follow Kate on Instagram @thekatethornton, or on Twitter @k8_thornton.

    Episode 168: Jane Garvey and Fi Glover - Fortunately Special

    We are honoured to have two absolute legends as our guests for this episode - Jane Garvey and Fi Glover, off of Radio 4! 


    They tell us about their award-winning podcast, Fortunately. We get some advice on raising teenagers, including how honest we should be with kids about our own teenage years, and how to handle them going off to university. 


    Then there's a whole load of chat about everything from the anti-vaccination movement and Bergerac, to interviewing Rolf Harris and whether you can get pregnant standing up. Helen reveals the unlikely song she had played at her wedding, and Ellie teaches Fi and Jane a new word for pornography. 


    You can download the brilliant Fortunately podcast from the BBC, or wherever you get your podcasts. Follow Jane on Twitter @janegarvey1; Fi is @fifiglover.

    Episode 166: Christmas 2019 with the usual idiots

    Episode 166: Christmas 2019 with the usual idiots

    It's Chriiiiiiist Mas! And that means it's time for Nurse Jessie and Steve Hill to join us once again for some daft old festive nonsense. 


    As is tradition, we discuss whether the snowman actually does bring the snow, wish Linda a happy birthday, and review some ham. We talk about our highlights of the year, including getting breathalysed and pissing in a pub car park. 


    There is a Christmas message from Ellie's Dad, Jessie does a festive joke, and Steve Hill reveals his patented technique for farting in a van. Why they won't let us on Radio 4 we just don't know. We have a new game, It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Crispmas, plus - by popular demand - there's a special Christmas edition of The Accent Game. 


    Many thanks to our sponsor for this episode - Michael Buble Perfume! Splash some of this on and if you ever meet Michael Buble in real life, he will instantly fall in love with you, potentially. Buy his fragrant wares from theperfumeshop.com. #MBFrangrances #theperfumeshop @michaelbubleperfume @theperfumeshop
