Latest Episodes

ARCHIVE: Do the Rothschilds Own Me?

EBefore we get back to new episodes, we'd love it if you could take our survey about the podcast and tell us what you think of it! Here's the link: https://goo.gl/forms/kgVbNVq5rJ26g6FI2 Thanks pals. Anyway, this week we've got another goodie! Alex places the future of the podcast in peril by delving into the murky history of the richest family on the planet, while Caroline examines two things that have been on her chest lately - the fact that we used to have boobs in films, and fact that a man called Hays invented censorship to take them away. Meanwhile Hannah provokes controversy by getting into a pickle over, yes, pickles, and our classically wine-heavy Women Who Code mixer investigates whether 3D printers could one day print us a glass of warm chardonnay. Finally our Smart Lesson provides some tips on how to seem cultured, in case you need to feel smug at parties. Contact:dumbwomenpod@gmail.com Music by Harry Harris, logo design by Gavin Day.

ARCHIVE: Why Is There A Dirty Bird In My Pants? with Pro Wrestling: Eve

ECaroline has thrush again (of course!) and there's a new royal baby on the way, so now's a good time to revisit this episode! What’s that itchy feeling, and why has it nested in Caroline’s underwear? This week she investigates the yeasty world of thrush, while Hannah ventures out for some fresh air and asks some silly questions to Emily Read, co-founder of Eve Women’s Pro Wrestling, and Rhia O’Reilly, wrestling champ and head trainer at Eve Academy. Meanwhile Alex examines how rollercoasters make us sick with excitement, and a strange man called Richard Danyou makes an appearance in a new segment aiming to get us all out of our overdrafts. Finally in our Smart Lesson we learn about how to have the right opinions about the royal family, before it all kicks off later this year.

ARCHIVE: How Can I Be Un-Young Gracefully? with Marion Rankine

EWe've all got a year older since this one first aired (all of us apart from Helen Mirren, of course) so now's a good time to peel the Werther's Original off it and use it upside down by mistake. Hold onto your Ordnance Survey, listeners, because this week we're delving into your dad's glove box with lessons on buttons, maps and umbrellas! Caroline says the word button so much it loses all meaning, Hannah teams up with some sea monsters to get lost in the confusing world of map copyrighting, and Alex does shag all by outsourcing her section to author Marion Rankine, who inducts us into the mystic rites of umbrellas. We also time travel to investigate QR codes in our Women Who Code mixer, and then to make a pact with Father Time so that we never have to compete with Helen Mirren.

ARCHIVE: How Can I Be Un-Young Gracefully? with Marion Rankine

ARCHIVE: What Is Gwyneth Paltrow?

EA true classic from the vaults this week, with Caroline's now famous exposé on goop. This week, Alex learns that our hair is just lots of whiskers, Hannah finds out that prosecco fizz is a bit like Schrödinger's cat, and Caroline lifts the veil on Gwyneth Paltrow. We also discuss how coding can help us pull in our Women Who Code mixer, and finally, practice how to be good mentors in our smart lesson. If you can understand it all, well done! We’ll send you a gold star in the post. Contact:dumbwomenpod@gmail.com Music by Harry Harris, artwork by Gavin Day. Recorded at Soho Radio Studios and produced by Hannah Varrall.

ARCHIVE: How Many Dumb Women Does It Take To Write A Song? with Harry Harris

EYes a third archive episode! How long will we do this for? Who knows! This week in honour of a visit from resident jingle creator Harry Harris, the Dumb Women go musical. Caroline investigates why earworms are so rah rah ah-ah-annoying, Alex looks into why Beethoven was the Michael Jackson of his day, and Hannah stands on the table to belt out an inadvisable medley about Karaoke. Our Women Who Code mixer looks at how AI is going to put singer-songwriters out of work, and finally in the Smart Lesson, Harry Harris helps us write a soulful duet between Joanna Lumley and her favourite shelved architectural project, the Garden Bridge.

ARCHIVE: Are Seahorses The Working Girl Of The Ocean? with Tobi Oredein

EAre you hoping to be fobbed off with a top-quality archive episode this week? Because you're in luck! Who keeps the metric system down? This week, Hannah goes on a deep dive down her ruler to figure out just what in the hell is making international baking so confusing. Alex stands up for seahorses, the 80s power business lady of the seas, while Caroline says very little and instead invites Black Ballad creator Tobi Oredein to tell us all about Issa Rae and Insecure. In our Women Who Code mixer we look at how to be nice to your server, and finally in our smart lesson, we learn how to disguise the fact that women have bowels. Noisily.

ARCHIVE: What Is Sex And Should I Have Some? with Helen Duff

EWe're taking a break this month so we've cracked one of our favourite (and most sexy) episodes out of the archive just for you, you filthy beasts. Make sure you’re doubling up with the pill and Durex Extra Safe, because this week we’re talking kissing, sex and Hannah’s personal lubricant of choice, squash. We also spice things up by asking comedian Helen Duff to talk us through sexual intercourse (who’s having it? Why?), orgasms (some kind of biscuit, I guess?) and a tantric shaman called Elaine. In our Women Who Code mixer we school ourselves on the sex robots that are taking the gross men out of the dating pool, plus in our Smart Lesson, we share some tips on how to decide what a Smart Woman’s stance on Valentine’s Day should be.

63. What Makes A Christmas Special?

EChristmas is a time for overindulgence, so this week we present you with not one but two dumb guests, some bad crackers (mostly Alex’s) and a few vagina jokes just for Christmas seasoning. Alan Maguire of Roast Chestnuts and Juvenalia podcast fame talks to Caroline about made-for-TV Christmas movies and why they’re having a resurgence this year, Hannah finds out the frankly heartwarming story behind Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Alex gifts us a special Christmas poem and forces us to play games together (but it’s Christmas bingo, so it’s fine). Dr Jane Frail is also on hand with some useful advice about dealing with difficult family members when you’re in close proximity with them, and finally trend reporter Lucy Vine joins us to tell us what we should be looking out for this winter.

63. What Makes A Christmas Special?

INTRODUCING: Sentimental Garbage

EWe're clogging up your podcast box with something a bit different today – a taster of Sentimental Garbage, a new podcast about chick-lit and the "guilty pleasures" you're done feeling guilty about. Created and hosted by certified Dumb Woman Caroline O'Donoghue and produced by Dumb Host Hannah Varrall, Sentimental Garbage celebrates classics of "commercial women's fiction" by authors such as Marian Keyes, Jill Mansell and Helen Fielding. In this first episode, Caroline chats to journalist and author Lauren Bravo about The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice, a book which contains plenty of spangly dresses, glamorous Americans and female friendship. If you enjoy Sentimental Garbage, remember to subscribe to it wherever you get your podcasts for new episodes throughout December. Music by Harry Harris, artwork by Gavin Day.
