Mixed bag in this weeks episode! Jane talks about being in a mental funk, Ro debunks health myths and we both continue the sustainability chat with Greta Thunberg arriving in NYC by boat. Fair play to her.
*Full disclosure - this was prerecorded as we're on HOLZ
We're working more than ever, taking on new commitments and constantly having to socialise to avoid feeling friend-guilt... it's no wonder that we are BURNT OUT. Jane's work pal Maeve joins us on this episode to talk about our experience with 'burnout' and how we can avoid it.
Once again, we lash on our agony aunt hats and take a stab at helping our listeners with some of their problems. While we are in no way qualified to give ACTUAL life advice - what we do give, is our objective perspective. Sometimes that's helpful, right?

In episodeo of Shitetalk, we talk utter shite about Ro's new period Knicks, Jane's hatred (yes, hatred) of Game of Thrones, and trying (and failing) to get into meditating.
Taz Kelleher, total legend and co-founder of Sustainable Fashion Dublin, schools us on what the fuck our retail addiction is doing to the planet and how we can make small changes that will make a huge impact.
This is an absolute must listen.

Whether it be fantasising about someone you went on a date with and dreaming about your wedding day, or about the career you envision yourself in, or even about how you wish you looked... fantasising can be dangerous and keep you from living in the now. Of course, it can also be class to have a little daydream too. We talk about fantasising in all its forms and how it affects us.
Off the back of our latest live show (that we don't have a recording of due to tech difficulties, SOZ), we talk about staying present and reflecting on big moments, small moments or just checking in with how we're feeling. We talk about how we constantly looking to the future, and having our heads in our phones is affecting us... and how we try to be mindful of that.

We were chuffed to welcome Annie Lavin aka The Relationship Coach to the podcast. When it comes to navigating relationships and dating, Annie seriously knows her shit.

Finding what you love to do is hard enough.. let alone finding the time and courage to actually do it. We talk about our current passion project, the podcast, and past side gigs that failed miserably.
Okay so the episode name seems harsh, but you know exactly who we're talking about.
We talk about dealing with those people in your life that can drain you emotionally or waste your time, and how you can distance yourself without hurting any feelings...
