Welcome to The Overshare with Gemma Atkinson. In each episode Gemma takes on a different topic ranging from the shocking to the hilarious to the tear jerking. Gemma and her guests share open and honest experiences and you’ll hear some of the most jaw dropping stories. In each episode Gemma’s joined by an expert who helps us make sense of some of the curve balls life can throw. This is not for young ears! Expect explicit content in Gemma’s debut podcast series; The Overshare. Come and join us.
What's a bit unconventional about YOU?
What is it about you that makes you and your life a little bit different to others? We asked and you delivered… from home tutoring, to a couple of mums ditching their other halves for each other, to the shock the guests to one Wedding got… it all features, as we speak to those who go against the norm.
In this episode we use a different voice for Melanie's story.
When your FIRST date was your LAST date!
These aren’t just bad first dates these are horrific moments in anyone’s life! Forget bad manners and poor punctuality we’re talking impromptu nakedness and bringing out the baby oil! There's high shock factor in this Overshare.
Everything’s as it should be, you think you’ve got a handle on life and it’s all on course… then, out of the blue you’re hit with a huge curve ball. That’s what this episode is all about. Gemma’s joined by people who all had their life suddenly interrupted, from rare illnesses to dramatic exits to re locations and the discovery your marriage wasn’t as it seemed.
In some episodes of The Overshare we change names to protect those connected to our Over sharers.
My Other Half was THAT useless during My Labour!
Prepare to be astonished at just how rubbish some birth partners can be! However bad you may have had it, ask yourself how you’d feel if your other half went for a round of golf whilst you were in labour! There’s also an appearance from Gorka Marquez, who between tip runs chats about his performance during Gemma’s labours.
When Parenting Goes Wrong...!
Calling all Parents and those who have ever been responsible for a child…! This one’s for you; to let you know we’re all in the same boat… we’re all winging it from waking up to bedtime and everyone in this episode will prove that, there are mishaps and mess ups a plenty.
Coping with Grief
Gemma lost her Dad at a very young age and has often wondered if we all cope with Grief in the same way. In this episode of The Overshare we hear from people who have all suffered very different kinds of grief and are at a point where they can now share the toughest times of their life. Thank you so much to our guests in this Overshare for opening up to help others.
Gemma is so down to earth, great to hear podcasts about real life. Been a total life saver for me, struggling with Grief so the podcast on Grief was so helpful. Makes you laugh and Cry.. look forward to episodes each week..
Fabulous listen, heartwarming, heartbreaking, funny, informative, inspiring and just a bloody joy!
Drive to work therapy ☺️
Love this new podcast, I listen to it driving to work and I have laughed and cried.
The latest episode about grief really helped as we lost our sister suddenly in 2020 and it is good to hear other people’s stories and Gemma’s experiences herself about how they coped and how they’re living with grief.
I follow Gemma on Instagram and find that she is so relatable and real so I was very happy when I discovered the new podcast. 😊
