    In Tough Times, We're Bonding Over An Ugly House

    In Tough Times, We're Bonding Over An Ugly House

    The word ‘despair’ would not be an overstatement when it comes to how Melburnians are feeling at the moment as they enter into Stage 4 of lockdown. The numbers are scary and restrictions are severe. So, how are Victorians coping? 

    Also, we need to talk about supermodel Gigi Hadid’s house. The Internet can’t stop yelling about how ugly it is, while Mia is convinced her taste is ‘impeccable’. 

    Plus, some positivity during the pandemic. We’re sharing the things that are making us laugh.

    Note: Jessie Stephens is dating Mia Freedman’s son, Luca Lavigne.

    We're All So Ashamed

    We're All So Ashamed

    You're not imagining it, Australians are angry. The three Queensland women who crossed the border with COVID-19 have been met with enormous outrage. Should their pictures have even be shared? And are they the right people to blame? We discuss.

    Plus, is the most rebellious thing a young person can do these days… get married?

    And, we need to talk about an emotion we can’t seem to shake, no matter how old and wise we get: shame.

    A Feisty Debate About Instagram's #ChallengeAccepted

    A Feisty Debate About Instagram's #ChallengeAccepted

    Have you suddenly noticed black-and-white portraits in your Instagram feed? They'll likely be closeups of women's faces — some famous, plenty not — with a few names tagged and a caption that declares "#challengeaccepted". So, what is the challenge exactly? And why are celebrities and normal women alike taking part in it?

    Plus, The Bachelorette has been announced and... THERE'S TWO OF THEM. We’re the third country to do this, and in the other two markets, it hasn’t ended well. So, will these two women be pitted against each other?

    And, is the environmental load falling disproportionately on women?

    The Bunnings Incident That Stopped A Nation

    The Bunnings Incident That Stopped A Nation

    Julia Gillard might have one of the most talked about feminist political addresses of all time, but this past week, everyone’s talking about another one. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called out a fellow US politician in Congress after he called her a bitch, and women can’t get enough of it.

    Plus, did you think we were going to get through today’s episode without Mia talking about Taylor Swift? Nope. So why is this album so different?

    And where do our personal freedoms end, and our social responsibilities begin? Three Victorian women have gone viral over the past three weeks after they refused to follow Victoria’s COVID-19 guidelines.

    Hosts: Holly Wainwright, Jessie Stephens, and Mia Freedman

    Don't Mess With Melbourne's Pregnant Women

    Don't Mess With Melbourne's Pregnant Women

    Do not mess with the pregnant people of Melbourne.

    This week, it was announced that partners would be asked to leave hospitals two hours after the birth. A debate has ensued, and to talk about it we're joined by original Outlouder, the very pregnant Monique Bowley https://www.instagram.com/moniquebowley/

    And, there’s a new generational war simmering away in offices, and it’s been kicked off by non-other than Chair Of The ABC and all-round media legend, Ita Buttrose. Ita says that millennials ‘lack resilience and need hugging’. So, does she have a point?

    Plus, the Bachelor In Paradise sex contract we can't stop thinking about.

    We Need To Talk About Kanye West

    We Need To Talk About Kanye West

    The world is now officially concerned about Kanye West. Over the weekend the rapper hosted his first presidential rally and he went viral. He spoke for more than an hour, and at times his speech was incoherent. He had no microphone. He wore a bullet-proof vest, yelled, cried, argued with people, reprimanded the audience for clapping and had 2020 shaved into the back of his head. So in these situations, what do we do?

    Plus did you know that it’s very easy to tell who’s a good person and who's not? There’s a theory that all you have to do is look at what they do with a shopping trolley. 

    And, eight Australian magazines closed yesterday, leaving the offering in your local newsagents… thin, to say the least. Will they be missed?

    Hosts: Holly Wainwright, Jessie Stephens, and Mia Freedman 

    Producer: Elissa Ratliff

    Recommendations: Holly and Mia want you to read Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld

Top American Fan

I like to think of myself as MMOL’s biggest American fan — I never miss an episode. I love the fun discussions, always enjoy conversations about Taylor Swift, and certainly don’t mind a song from Mia now and then. The show gives me conversation starters and different perspectives too.

Love this

I don’t always agree but I love hearing different perspectives.

Makes me laugh!

This podcast was a recommendation from The Daily Telegraph. I’m an expat who lives in the US. I love this podcast especially during this time of global lockdown. Love listening to the Australian perspective on Coronavirus. The recommendation are fun, especially Yoga with Adriene. I listen on my daily walk with the dog. Keep up the good work ladies. Love you and the show.
