    Stacey and the Tale of Two Steves

    Stacey and the Tale of Two Steves

    Aren’t first dates just the BEST? (Where’s the sarcasm font when you need it!)
    It’s another tale where two dates had the same name so we’re going with the theme. Join Stacey on two disastrous first dates, because it’s always so much fun when it’s not you.

    Minisode 62 - Going Nip Deep

    Minisode 62 - Going Nip Deep

    Liz and Tom don their relationship counselor caps and do their best to help out friends of the show in their pursuit of love and happiness. With next to no qualifications.
    Back-to-back minisodes as a little treat for those Readers who seemingly can't get enough of them!
    On this week's episode, Tom and Liz tackle the daunting challenge of meeting the parents of your partner for the first time and try to issue advice to help. A Reader wonders at what stage of a relationship should you discuss the non-negotiables and we decorate with some green flags for a change! This plus more within, and special thanks to Dom Guilfoyle for stepping in to produce.
    Send in your questions, stories, and corrections to ghostsofboyfriendspast@gmail.com to be featured on the show.

    Minisdoe 61 - Long Fart Goodnight

    Minisdoe 61 - Long Fart Goodnight

    Time to have your insanity read back to you Readers. It's minisode time and we've found the best/most horrific dating stories from you the listeners, and online to make you feel better about your own dating lives.
    We aren't going to give away too much about this episode's title; how well could an unwanted date possibly end?
    Today you will also be treated to more first date shockers, parents and religion force themselves between two people and the gall of tindering whilst on a date...
    If you have dating stories that just have to be shared please send them through to ghostsofboyfriendspast@gmail.com and if you are getting a kick out of the show we would appreciate a review to help spread the good word!

    Matthew and the Boyfriend Role

    Matthew and the Boyfriend Role

    It sure is swell to have long-time friend of the show Matty tell his tale of misjudged romance.
    Matthew joins us this week to bravely share the story of his first serious relationship. A movie geek since birth, Matthew grew up entranced by film and the glossy, epic tales of soaring romance that swooned and swash-buckled their way across the silver screen. Yet when this leading man eventually conceded to romance in the harsh light of real-life he starts to learn that carrying Hollywood's idealised version of love with you, and particularly into a relationship, may just trip you up.

    Minisode 60 - Do Good Things

    Minisode 60 - Do Good Things

    Time to have your insanity read back to you Readers. It's minisode time and we've found the best/most horrific dating stories from you the listeners, and online to make you feel better about your own dating lives.
    Apologies off the top for bombarding you with romance tales of terror Dear Reader, but we promise it gets better towards the end. On the show this week we hear that old diddling-the-maid-tale which includes proof via a theme park, we hear the tale of a bloke who seems to only date people who have English as a second language, and a well-meaning kid gets his heart torn in half like the gifted tickets he purchased - but then we end on a couple of lovely, wholesome moments to make it all worthwhile!
    If YOU have a dating story of your own, better feedback than what Liz and Tom have provided on-air, or even gushing compliments please send them through to ghostsofboyfriendspast@gmail.com
    Now go well, and go do good things!

    Carly and the Engagement Rings

    Carly is back to talk about her engagement rings. Yes, plural. Yes, there’s four of them. Plus some wedding bands and eternity rings.
    Carly Alexander (née Quinn) returns to GOBP for her third storytime (and funnily enough given this ep’s topic this is the third surname she’s had since first appearing!)
    Carly is a Matilda Award-winning Brisbane actor and singer.
