Episode 6: Listeners’ Problems - Q&A

April 22, 2018

Over the past few months, we've been getting messages from listeners sharing problems they're facing and asking for advice - whether its to do with sex, love, work, family... or something else entirely. What’s amazing, is that we can relate to almost every message we get in the inbox. It’s deadly. Thank you for joining the conversation and being so open to sharing.

We picked out some of these problems, put on our 'agony aunt' hats, poured a glass of wine and gave our two cents.

Disclaimer: This episode is meant to be just a lighthearted snapshot of problems a lot of people face in their 20s and 30s, and all advice is purely personal opinion. We're definitely not life coaches or therapists.

Episode 5: Everyone is Moving Away!

April 9, 2018

Sure, living it up overseas looks mad glam through Instagram stories, but what's it really like? We have no idea, because we're part of the minority of Irish people our age who still live in the homeland. 

We talk about why we never left, what it feels like to watch all our mates leave Ireland and how you adapt once they're gone. On the flipside, we talk to our pal Ellie Macnamara, who currently lives in New York, to ask if she's really having as much fun as we think everyone is.

Episode 4: It’s Not You, It’s Me

March 26, 2018

In episode 4, we torture ourselves (for your listening pleasure) by delving into our biggest, most devastating heartbreaks.

We talk about why breaking up hurts so much, how we got through it and why break-ups are a necessary part of life. We also share some of the gas, mad and sad stories of breakups sent in by our listeners.

Episode 3: Hormonal Birth Control - The Ultimate Frenemy?

March 12, 2018

Happy Belated International Women's Day, gals (and lads).

This week, we chat about hormonal contraception - the good parts, the bad parts and the nasty parts. Do we know enough about what we put in our bodies, and why is birth control mostly a women's responsibility?

Before recording, we asked our listeners to share their experiences too, which we discuss on the show. 

 

Disclaimer: We're not doctors. Everything on this episode is solely based on personal experiences. You're better off chatting with your GP if you're having any issues with birth control.

Episode 2: Fuck being a “Chill Girl”

March 4, 2018

When it comes to dating, work and even friendships, sometimes we act "chill" to avoid being branded crazy, needy or bossy. We challenge the "chill girl" myth, and why it's so damaging.
