    14 Years of Very Loose Women

    Very Loose Women started on student radio in 2006. In 2013 it started on Resonance and has since had a growing number of participant producers and has experimented with format too. The original 4 presenters, as well as three of the current producers, share their thoughts on what the show is and has been.


    Show idea by Anna Rose. Edit and music by Leo.


    We are so proud of what we've created and thankful to ResonanceFM for welcoming us into their space.
    We will still be podcasting though more sporadically.

Love this show

The girls are funny, insightful, and just generally fun to listen to. I feel like I’ve just joined a coffee shop conversation they’re so relaxed. I always learn something having a listen, and love how open and free they are with what they talk about. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun listen.

Intelligent and playful!

Really love this show and find it extremely comforting to listen to. Hosts also have great chemistry and cover a wide array of topics. Have also discovered great guests and artists who are lesser known on other platforms but well worth following!

VLW fan #1 ,

Excellent

No other presenters are so open on air or have such a rapport. Feminist and funny without being exclusively aimed at men, all my guy friends love it too. Fun music, impressive guests - you feel like they’re friends straight away. Another great example of ResonanceFM’s brilliant output.
