    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).

    #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.

Such a brilliant podcast!

I love this podcast so much, always puts me in a great mood and I can relate to that girls so much, one of the best podcasts I have listened to!! Love all the topics you talk about please don’t ever stop making this amazing podcast ❤️😂🎉

Undeclared product placements?

If you’re going to advertise a product or a company, say for example Iceland, it’s a requirement to declare this explicitly rather than read off a script unnnounces as if thei was your closely held view. It sounds forced, and put me off listening further, as it’s clearly not from the heart but to make a bit of cash.

I love this

Fringe of it always lifts my mood whenever I’m feeling down, I love their humour, honesty and how they’re un-afraid to just be themselves. Tuning in each week feels like a genuine comfort and escape, and I recommend it to everyone! Well done Charlotte and Liv 💓
