Weddings - part 1

This week here comes the bride and all things wedding related...we get lost in the no mans land that is the the wedding ceremony - should oversized Jenga ever be involved? Wedding rules; are they necessary or should we all be radical and do exactly what we want? Why are men getting to do all the speeches? Should the bride be made up to the extent that no one, including the groom, recognises her? The bigger questions are not left untouched like will Kirsty learn to suck apples or get the chance to slide across the dance floor and will our invention of the bumbrella ever take off? Also includes two new and exciting sections alongside the our much beloved 'Overheard Corner' - 'Awkward Moments' and the, a-hem, 'Lovely Hole - it's a whole lot of lovely'.

Weddings - part 1

School Days

This week we’re walking those stinky school corridors again, re-visiting the highs and lows and the down-right butt-clenchingly (or otherwise) embarrassing moments we all experienced... We ponder over whether Kirsty should have been able to keep her shaved initials in her hair or Rebecca was actually well within her rights to be smoking in the school toilets. Our Butters share their most hilariously embarrassing school moments. Why is school a dystopian nightmare for some...a festival of delights for others?... we don’t know but we spend a lot of time talking about it.

School Days

Dieting

This week we ravishingly eat up all things diet related ... why do we so want to believe in them.. even the ones that make us smell like cabbage and eat deadly worms, when they seem to have the power to make us all unhappy? In our desperate attempts, filled with shame and judgement, to eat less and punish our bodies do we perhaps forget that food is life and life is fun, and that perhaps inside every thin girl there's a fat girl trying to eat her way out? Also features the joyful mental image of Rebecca and Kirsty romping around in full-body jegging suits.Enjoy.

Disability

In a conversation that Kirsty rates 5 stars (but then she’s easily pleased), we swallow back the fear of offending and frankly getting things all kinds of wrong and delve in to the issues surrounding disabilities. Why when 1 in 5 people in the UK are disabled aren’t they similarly represented on our TV screens? Are disabled people fed up with being either pitied or held up as heroes? Why isn'teveryone valued and deemed to be exactly enough just as they are? And why isn’t Kirsty suitably impressed by Rebecca’s Stephen Hawking story?

Parties

This week, now with the help of our lovely listeners - the ‘Butters’, we line up the shots and vol-au-vents and discuss the very best and worst of soirees and shindigs. Should other people clear up at your party? Is there too much pressure on NYE to ever enjoy it? Will Kirsty ever leave the buffet table? And what should one do if a guest gets her breasts stuck in her zip whilst another is eating a frozen snake? Whatever the answers may be there's no doubt this is THE place to be, and you’re all invited. Bring a bottle. Or two.

Womanhood

What does it mean to be a woman? Is it ok to draw any distinctions between the genders? Are women supportive of each other? Is it insulting for a woman to be referred to as a ‘girl’? Does Kirsty’s new ‘serious’ voice mask our inabilities to grapple with such a weighty subject? And when oh when will we hear a woman fart in a movie?

Womanhood

Identity

Who are you? A question of course initially posed by renowed philosopher Roger Daltrey. This week we also ponder the issues of identity; How much of ourselves die when our loved ones die? How much of our identity is lactated away when we become a mother? What should you do when you wave at someone then realise it's your own reflection in a mirror? And will Kirsty ever be able to say 'unfathomable'? Whatever you do, the conclusion is clear - just be yourself. Unles you're a twat. Then try being someone else.

Identity

Bewildered

Rebecca and Kirsty merely scratch the surface of their known unknowns; the stuff they simply do not understand, from gravity to the hangy bits in t-shirts, from LinkedIn to the evolution of monkeys who decided they couldn’t be bothered to turn in to humans... If you’ve ever felt ignorant, give this a listen. It will give your comparative intelligence one hell of a boost.

Summer Holidays

Six weeks of being grounded with the whole family, or maybe you’re lucky enough to brave the airless hell-hole of anxiety that is the airport so you call yell at your kids to ‘stop wielding stuff’ in a whole different continent. Whatever your summer holds, we’re here for you, discussing the hidden perils of mashed potato on a long boat, finding out you were matched to your painfully dull exchange student Helga because of your similar personalities, and testing your marriage to breaking point on a kayak in alligator-infested waters. Let us audibly spread sun cream on those hard to reach parts.

Summer Holidays

Friendship

Join on us on the beautiful journey that is friendship as we plait each other’s hair and have feathery pillow fights yet still make time to take a detour into the similarities between parents and bras. We rip in to what bonds and ask, is it the friends who smell together stay together? If you’re a friend in need, we are your friends indeed...
