    Vanilla-shaming has become the new kink-shaming on TikTok, which leads us to discuss the kink community and how our misunderstanding of it has allowed predatory men to flourish.

    Nobody Ever Hears About John Krasinski's Bad Behaviour

    Hello angels. On the agenda today: the fuckery that is the Golden Globes, the legend that is SOPHIE, why AOC is being criticised for speaking out about her trauma, why ARod is about to get dumped by JLo and the very bad but very bingeable book by Kim Kardashian’s Paris robber, which includes a cameo from Tracy Chapman.

    A Very Ultra Summer With... AJ Clementine

    A Very Ultra Summer With... AJ Clementine

    Hello angels. In our last installment of our #VeryUltra summer (we're heartbroken too), we’re thrilled to be talking to Tik Tok sensation—830,000 followers and counting—and trans activist AJ Clementine. AJ began her career on Youtube, offering a raw and vulnerable depiction of her own experiencing transitioning. Now, she's one of the most formidable emerging forces in the Australian media, working with the country's biggest fashion and beauty brands, including being the first trans model to front an underwear campaign for Bonds. We talk to AJ about the pitfalls of having such a prolific online presence, what it's like to have the internet obsess over your relationship, how important it is to have healthy depictions of transness in pop culture, among many other things. We truly could not think of a more Ultra moment to leave our series on—we can't wait for you to listen, and please rate, review, and subscribe.

Great podcast!

Wonderful Podcast

Dear Isabelle and Grace,
I absolutely adore your podcast. I have been listening since February 2019 when I first heard about it through another podcast (shoutout Three Dumplings). I had just gone through a terrible breakup 2 months after moving to Germany with my boyfriend of three years. Alone in Germany and never having listened to podcasts before, it was one of the few things I felt emotionally and physically capable of doing. Listening each week and joining your facebook group helped me feel less isolated during that time. I quickly listened to your entire backlog of episodes, and have been a regular listener ever since—it’s one of the few podcasts I actually follow and the one that I look forward to the most each week. I relate to so much of what you say about anxiety, breakups in your late 20s (particularly being away from friends and family in the midst of a tough one), politics, the environment, and the impossible beauty standards we as a society set on women. The topics you discuss and the nuance you give them are uplifting and bring joy to my life. I have never written a podcast review before, so that just shows how wonderful yours is! To potential listeners, do give this podcast a listen—you won’t be disappointed.
Wishing you both all the best from Germany,
Clare

My favorite podcast - EVER

I have listened to AWD from the very beginning, and every week it feels like I’m sitting down for a glass of wine with two of my best girlfriends to debrief on the week that was.

Izzy and Grace are so well-read, insightful and FUNNY. Every episode leaves me laughing and thinking hard about topics more women should be speaking up about. AWD tackles topics in a relatable, conversational way that actually gives you an action plan on how to be a better, more informed human being. I can’t tell you enough to subscribe and listen every week!!
