Mamamia Out Loud

Mamamia Out Loud

Australia

It's the kind of show you'd never hear on commercial radio: that is, women. Lots of women. This is the weekly podcast that's smart, often silly and sometimes surprising. Absolutely everything is up for discussion: from pop culture to politics, body image to motherhood, feminism to fashion. Join Monique Bowley, Mia Freedman and a range of guests as they cover what everyone's talking about this week.

Episodes

Three Women Wearing White  

No jacket? No job. When Channel 9’s Amber Sherlock's had an off-air spat leaked, the world cried “bully”.  But was her behavior really so disgraceful? The latest Australia Day lamb ad has received widespread acclaim, but there are some people who aren't impressed. And calling all single ladies; we have the one phrase you can say to someone that will make them fall for you in an instant, and we want you to roadtest it. Write it on your hand, (hopefully you don’t get too sweaty and it rubs off), and go for it. We dare you.

What is your word for 2017?  

Resolutions? Bah. This year it's all about the revolution of one word. Something that encapsulates your focus for the year.  It's simple, it's powerful, it's minimalism for resolutions.  And we want yours.

BONUS: The Year That Fashion Went Nude  

Side vag, full vag, bum-baring. The red carpet this year was all about peek-a-boos, cut-outs and flesh flesh flesh. Is everyone on excellent terms with their laser hair removalist? What kind of underwear trickery has to happen? Who wore it (or didn't wear it) best? And despite how entertaining it all was, there's another darker message it's sending.

Join Mamamia editors as they recap the year that was in this six-part bonus series.

BONUS: The Year Of The Avocado  

In 2012 it was activated almonds. In 2013 it was quinoa and acai bowls. Last year, Kale stole everyone’s hearts. And in 2016, Australia stopped for Avocado. It’s the fruit of the Zeitgeist. On menus in every corner of the country, beloved by hipsters and health nuts alike, you can buy an avocado facial, avocado chips and avocado brownies, and avocado tatts are up 800%. But its influence went far beyond food and fashion. It sparked an intergenerational war.

Avocado is written by Luke Escombe and performed by The Vegetable Plot

BONUS: The Year We Filmed Everything  

This year, did you share a Waleed Aly viral video? Dabble in Instagram stories or watch the PM do a Facebook live? 2016 was the year we filmed everything. So what were the big hits? What makes a video go viral? And do we really need to see Snapchat Birth? With more people watching Kylie Jenner's pouty Snapchat every day than Australia's biggest ratings shows of all time, umm, yeah. There are no signs of it letting up.

BONUS: The Year The 90's Came Back  

Don your best choker. Pull on your denim overalls. Put down Pokemon Go for a minute, and switch Gilmore Girls off the TV, because 2016 was a 90's nostalgia fest. From Full House, to the Spice Girls reunion, why are we suddenly craving the delights of the nineties? It's psychology, of course, and social media. But enjoy it while it lasts because there's a theory that mass nostalgia, the way we've seen it emerge this year, will never happen again.

BONUS: The Year We Finally Watched Women's Sport  

It was a watershed year for women in sport. They dominated the Olympics, scored themselves TV deals with major networks, and showed male sports reporters how it was done. What was behind the sudden surge of interest in women's sport? Timing, cultural change, and recognition that was long overdue.

BONUS: The Year Politics Went Psycho  

It’s been a weird year. There was the rise of Trump, there was Brexit, and like a bad soapie, Pauline Hanson returned for a sequel in Australian politics. What were the big themes of the year, and where to next? Political guru Annabel Crabb joins us to dissect the year that was.

Sleeping with the boss and ALL the Summer recommendations.  

There's a sex scandal at the top of the Australian media world and it's a bit messy. In these situations does the woman ever come out on top? Heard of 'dry feeding'? It's not a diet, it's a new frontier for mums you should be kept abreast of. Ever rolled down the hill of Parliament House? Your democratic rolling rights are about to end. Why you need to stop asking people to eat more at Christmas, can you regift stuff you got given for free, last minute ideas for the blokes in your life, and a bumper recommendations extravaganza with everything to watch, read, listen to and wear this summer.

Sam's Undies, Mel's Movies, and Presents for Men  

When Sam Armytage’s undies became the target of the paparazzi, the response from the public was swift and fierce. The curious case of Mel Gibson’s comeback; would you support a movie that’s directed by a man with a dodgy history? What do you get men for Christmas? A little help for if you’re stuck in man-gift limbo. And why women need a pack to sunscreen each other's backs this summer.

What exactly is Victoria's 'Secret'?  

Is she hiding all the plus sized models backstage? This week it’s the Superbowl of fashion, the Victoria’s Secret runway show. Despite body positivity being the biggest runway trend of 2016, the lingerie brand just doesn’t seem interested. Amy Schumer is set to play Barbie in the upcoming Barbie movie - but many are arguing she’s not the right ‘fit’. Plus: Christmas is the most joyful time. Unless you’re hosting in which case, send help, and spike the punch. At what age or stage do you have to take the mantle, and host the bloody thing? Do the smashed avocado generation need to step up?

Don't Hide In The Toilet At Your Christmas Party  

It’s party season, which is great for some but if you have social anxiety it’s the pits. We have tips that can help you pull through the season of small talk.  All you need is a helping hand a little meditation. And a New York bar has a “no hitting on women policy”. Fun police? Or fair enough? Hillary Clinton has gone sans-makeup in public. Is it post-campaign sadness? A deliberate move to stick the middle finger up to being a woman in the public eye? And a plea for no more phone noise.

Show Notes

Your host and producer is Monique Bowley with Mia Freedman and Jessie Stephens

Monz recommends Black Rock, White City the debut novel of Australian writer A. S. Patrić. It won the Miles Franklin Award this year.

We Have A Side Vag Situation.  

The latest red carpet look is labia, darlings. Chrissy Teigen is the latest celeb to put her muff out and while she's calling 'wardrobe malfunction', we're calling BS. Is it time we stopped mocking Melania Trump or is the First Lady fair game? Who owns an IVF embryo post-separation? Sofia Vergara is locked in a legal battle over her eggs and it's not very Modern Family. Toss out Candy Crush, this app will make you smarter, and we have the best fix for when your fake tan goes Oompa Loompa on you..  Plus, Mia's best summer read for when the pollen count is too high to leave the house and Monz has a podcast for anyone who's missing Oprah's show.

Bras, Births & A Kinder,  Post-Trump World  

So here's a question: After our shock about the US election result - is it time we stopped shouting and started listening? Even, gulp, us? Also: Sharenting - how much is too much when it comes to posting about our kids' lives? And one more thing: When it comes to bras, how often are you meant to wash them? We're asking for a friend...

Prince Harry, Mrs Franklin and Your Unfashionable Breasts.  

Apparently there are other things going on other than the US election. Things like Prince Harry’s new girlfriend. Is she really ‘princess material’? And more to the point, should she want to be? And in case you missed it, boobs are now out of fashion. Vogue said so. Plus, Gable Tostee is looking at a six-figure deal to tell his story on 60 Minutes after being found not guilty of the murder of his Tinder date. But should we be watching?

Show Notes

our producer is Elissa Ratliff

BONUS: Trumpocalypse. The women of Mamamia debrief  

Grab chocolate and wine and join the Out Loud team (and a few others) for a real-time debrief about what a Trumpocalypse means for America, women and the world. And what the hell do we tell our daughters tonight? Holly Wainwright, Mia Freedman and Jessie Stephens are joined by Senior Editor Jackie Lunn, writer Rosie Waterland and friend of Mamamia and current US resident Kate Spies to discuss the results. Gulp.

Drunk Girls & Fur Babies  

Melbourne Cup may be over, but online gawking at drunk women at the races is not. Why? Isn’t it time we stopped snapping tipsy race-goers as if they’re wild animals in a nature documentary? Victoria's Secret have offered us something #diverse by having a model with stretch marks. The only problem is you can't see them. Plus, should animal owners refer to themselves as their pets' “mum” and “dad’? Jessie thinks yes. And the great generation debate returns.

Three Nasty Women  

Are you a nasty woman? We hope so. How this insult has become a badge of honor for women. Behind every successful man is a woman. So when a marriage breaks down, who ends up worse off? Taylor Swift got groped on the arse by a man and her response was exactly what we all need. Australias most Instagram famous toddler, Sonny Blake, isn’t just cute. Some say he is changing the perception of modern fatherhood. And is asking a woman when she plans on having a baby a)none of your business or b)none of your actual business?
