Two’s Company is a fortnightly podcast hosted by Grace Kingswell and Sophie Hellyer.

Inspired by the saying: “two’s company, three’s a crowd” our podcast is based on the belief that the best conversations happen when two friends are relaxed and enjoying each other’s company.

Each episode we sit down for honest, relevant conversations to dissect and discuss topics ranging from food, feminism, periods to politics. We aim to have relevant and thoughtful discussions on issues both trivial and political, frivolous and weighty, and sometimes just downright enjoyable.

    Framing Britney, The Polarising Question Of Tights & Lesser-Known Vagina Facts

    Framing Britney, The Polarising Question Of Tights & Lesser-Known Vagina Facts

     


    Welcome to episode 1 of Two’s Company, a fortnightly podcast hosted by Sophie Hellyer and Grace Kingswell. 


     


    Inspired by the saying: “two’s company, three’s a crowd” our new podcast is based on the belief that the best conversations happen when two friends are relaxed and enjoying each other’s company. 


     


    In today’s episode we’re discussing the The US documentary Framing Britney Spears, which investigates whether Britney Spears is now being held prisoner by a legal guardianship imposed after her breakdown 13 years ago. It hit British screens last week like a flashback to a bad dream, and made us all question the part we had to play in her downfall. 


     


    We also discuss our polarising views on tights, denim and sweatpants (lockdown made me do it), female body hair, the sexualisation of young girls (‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’), some lesser-known vagina facts and we answer questions from YOU around health, nutrition, cold-water swimming and much more.
