    Rebecca Woolf Was Going To Leave Her Husband, Then He Died

    Rebecca Woolf Was Going To Leave Her Husband, Then He Died

    Rebecca Woolf has done a lot of things before everyone else. She became a mum at 23 years old, had four children by the time she was 29 including twins. And then became a widow at just 37, when her husband Hal died pretty suddenly. But before he got sick unexpectedly, she was planning to leave him…

    Rebecca speaks about the hard stuff like exploring her sexuality and open relationships, stuff that we often don’t allow ourselves to talk about, or even to feel.

    THE END BITS:

    With thanks to Rebecca Woolf. You can buy her book, Rockabye,
    From Wild to Child, here.

    When Fiona Met Hayley

    When Fiona Met Hayley

    This love story starts with one woman sliding into another woman’s DMs. Fiona Falkiner is a model, she was a contestant and then a host on The Biggest Loser and the person who was in her DM’s? That was her now fiancé, Hayley Willis, who is a sports journalist. 

    Hayley was a little bit drunk, scrolling through Instagram after a big night and thought - wow, she’s hot. And now? Well, their love is big, their chemistry is undeniable and their family is growing. 

    From their first date to predatory paparazzi culture, to the birth of their son Hunter, here’s Hayley & Fiona…

    Phoebe Burgess Is Ready To Talk: Part Two

    Phoebe Burgess Is Ready To Talk: Part Two

    For two years, Phoebe Burgess remained pretty silent when it came to the breakup of her marriage. And then her ex-husband went on a reality TV show called SAS Australia. She’d wake up in the morning and read messages from women on Instagram saying they were thinking of her. And that’s when she realised the danger of someone's story being told by someone else. So, she decided to take the power back. And that’s why she’s joining Mia in the studio today for part two of our conversation...

    Phoebe Burgess Is Ready To Talk

    Phoebe Burgess Is Ready To Talk

    If you’d looked at Phoebe Burgess’ Instagram account three or four years ago, chances are you would have seen a happy family smiling back at you. Phoebe; a former magazine journalist, her husband, Sam Burgess; the famous NRL player, and a growing baby bump going on family holidays to Hamilton Island, Fiji, and coastal NSW. They had a beautiful home. Fame. Wealth. It was the ultimate highlight reel. But only a few people knew that those family holidays weren’t exactly what they appeared to be. A tiny handful of individuals in and around the football club were the only ones privy to all the things that had to be kept quiet. But now, Phoebe Burgess has found her voice, and is ready to talk...

    Kate Langbroek Decided To Blow Up Her Life

    Kate Langbroek Decided To Blow Up Her Life

    Over the past two decades, Kate Langbroek's life has changed dramatically. Some of that change has been because of choices she’s made - like having 4 kids in 5 years, or deciding to quit her high profile, massively well-paid radio job alongside Dave “Hughesy” Hughes to move to Italy...in the midst of a global pandemic.

    But other things that have thrown her world into chaos have been things that blindsided her. On this episode of No Filter, she opens up about all of it.

    With thanks to Kate Langbroek.

    The Very Big Friendship of Leigh Sales & Annabel Crabb

    The Very Big Friendship of Leigh Sales & Annabel Crabb

    Mia Freedman often says friendships are forged in the fire of shitty times as well as great ones. And that is the truth of the very strong, sometimes very rude bond between Leigh Sales and Annabel Crabb. They are two of the most admired, respected, successful, and talented journalists in Australia. They’ve won awards, written best-selling books, birthed babies, a hit podcast, a community of Chatters, and now a new book, called Well Hello. 

    They’ve both been on No Filter a number of times separately to talk about various projects but today, Mia wanted them to speak candidly about each other. From the misconceptions of Leigh to Annabel’s hair.

    THE END BITS:

    With thanks to Leigh Sales & Annabel Crabb.

Fascinating and inspiring

I stumbled across these podcasts recently and I am obsessed. They are wonderful, Mia is a great interviewer and she has some fantastic subjects! She has such an amazing way with the interviewees and they clearly love her for it. I’ll remember these podcasts as one of the best things about quarantining and this strange time. I am Northern Irish living in shanghai with 2 young kids , and some of the topics have really hit home. Thank you thank you 🌷
