It’s back!!

I loved this show the first time around and was sad when it ended without explanation. Now it’s mysteriously reappeared, same format and just as much fun as before. Thank you ladies for cheering up my brutal lockdown.

This dumb woman loves it

I love this podcast and am so glad it’s back! (I was obsessively checking for months). The gals are so funny and warm and riff off one another so well. The goofy humour they use GETS me and makes me feel like I’m hanging out with my own pals. Its one of the few podcasts that regularly makes me laugh out loud.

The content is quirky and engaging and full of fun facts you can casually drop into pub chat to make yourself seem like an well-educated and fascinating woman of the world. Also shout-out to the excellent music they use. My absolute fave podcast.
