    Assassinations Aside

    Assassinations Aside

    It's an episode number with a 0 on the end which can only mean one thing - a celebrity special! And it turns out that when a celeb dies consipracy theories aren't far behind...
    Clare possibly sets the Crips on her (?!) by covering the murder of Tupac, while Els goes back in time for a little MORE conversation (sorry) about King of Rock n Roll Elvis Presley. Then Sarah takes us on a fascinating (horrible) tour of the Kennedy Curse.
    This is the last episode for a little while as we're off around the world and having a break to regroup. Keep your eyes on our social media for news of our return.
    As per f**king usual this podcast contains swearing and politics. Oh and women.

    Chernobyl Baby

    Oh dear, it's happened again. We only have 2 stories for you this week as Daly and Sarah come with the same near miss. But don't worry, we're still as loud and boisterous as always.
    Els starts us off with a story about about a family on a boat (NOT the Swiss Family Robinson) and the other two tell a tale about a dangerous fish tank.
    Then we finish off with our female crushes of the week. Lots to learn.
    As always, contains unapologetic lady voices and loads of swears, enjoy!

    Barrister's Lob

    Welcome to week 37, where Clare talks us through all the horrifying pursuits us women have put ourselves through in the name of beauty, Els tells us the story of Helen Rudd and Sarah reminds why you can have too much of a good thing (and by good thing, we mean beer). As ever, we end the week with our girl crushes.
    Contains swearing and a reminder that Boris Johnson is now Prime Minister. Hold on to your pants.

    The episode also contains girl crushes, Holland chat and an interesting theory about people who ride horses. Enjoy!

Phenomenal!

I have blasted through all of your episodes in a week and half time frame. It has been a pure listeninggasm! I subscribe to 25+ podcasts and yours is such a unique, fascinating, well-researched, hilarious and delightful one. I feel like I am there having Prosecco with you as one of your mates. A mate all the way from Utah! I especially appreciate the girl crush addition. I look each woman up and have a new reading list, watch list and new appreciation for all of these amazing humans! Well done, ladies! Please keep it up, because I will be here in the other end enjoying! Cheers!!!

One of my favorites

Such a fun and interesting show! You all might be talking about macabre topics, but you're so funny and wonderful and I adore each episode to come out. Plus you somehow find the strange deaths I've never heard of and that is saying something
