    1 – Not Without Our... Mother

    Thank you for listening to Episode 1 of Not Without My Sister, which we have tentatively titled, 'Not Without Our... Mother?' This episode is dedicated to, and focuses on, our Mother, who, for all of her Irish Mammyisms, has her own individual quirks and foibles which make her – we think – just interesting enough to dedicate an hour-long podcast episode to. We hope you enjoy it :)If you have any topic suggestions, or subjects you'd like us to chat about, please do let us know!

    3 – On Holiday Romances (or Lack Thereof)

    3 – On Holiday Romances (or Lack Thereof)

    We've always quite fancied the idea of a holiday romance – blame Shirley Valentine (Beatrice's era) or Bliss magazine (Rosemary's) – but the reality has never *quite* stacked up to the fantasy.Join us as we chat about chasing after boys in foreign countries, the true pitfalls of wearing tearaway tracksuit bottoms to the céilí and why you should never trust a man who pursues you on the ferry.***Not Without My Sister is presented by sisters Beatrice Mac Cabe and Rosemary Mac Cabe, in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

    4 – All Bodies Are Good Bodies (Except My Body)

    How we feel about our bodies is bound to be coloured by our culture, but also by our upbringing. We chat about body positivity, body image and dieting – how we felt about our bodies growing up and how we feel about them now (if that's changed at all). Plus, some colourful Weight Watchers anecdotes. Bit of dust, anyone?Things we mention:Sweet Magnolias on NetflixNOOM (not noon): noom.comTLC's sMotheredJudy Blume's Deenie (a classic)***Not Without My Sister is presented by sisters Beatrice Mac Cabe and Rosemary Mac Cabe, in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

    5 – Everybody Needs Good Neighbours

    Can you have good neighbours AND be a good neighbour? And what does it mean to be a good neighbour anyway? Is it taking it upon yourself to euthanise a cat who clearly needs help shuffling off this mortal coil? Is it calling the local police every time you hear a scuffle?FYI!
