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

Molly, Maternity Leave and The Trouble With ANZAC Day  

There are a few things that remain sacred in the Australian landscape. ANZAC day is one of them. So when commentator Yassmin Abdel-Magid suggested that Australians should instead spare a thought for those on Manus Island and in Syria, it went down like a lead balloon. But isn't this the freedom of speech that our ANZAC soldiers fought for? What’s the right amount of Maternity leave to take? Anne-Marie Slaughter, former advisor to Hillary Clinton, says 12 months of maternity leave is too long and it will damage your career. Plus, the Logies moment that divided option: we need to talk about Molly.

Show notes

Your host and producer is Monique Bowley with Jessie Stephens and Holly Wainwright

Holly recommends watching No Offence on iTunes

Jessie is all about investing in a new mattress

Monz recommends baking the best ANZAC biscuits known to mankind.

Meghan Markle, Mr Vogue and the First Lady Of Hell.  

Meghan Markle is one step closer to being a Royal Princess, and she's just what the world needs right now. Should Asma al-Assad, Syria's First Lady, have her British citizenship stripped for war crimes? The new editor of women's mag British Vogue is a man and not everyone's pleased. Are you carrying an "obligatory friend" in your life, and is it time to ditch them? Please, TV, can we have a trigger warning on televising gruesome sports injuries, vibrators, and any more "dating experiment" shows because we've almost had enough. And there's  a listener dilemma about teenage sleepovers, and two awesome shows to add to your 'watch' list.

Stuffing Up, Slowing Down and Botox For Your Bum.  

After years of us waiting, crossing our fingers, and writing it on our Christmas wishlists, Botox for your butthole is finally a thing. Which has made Jackie realise that she has never actually seen her butthole...Have you? Plus, NSW Politician Pru Goward has given an interview about her relationship with estranged daughter Tziporah Malkhah, which begs the question what has to happen in a mother-daughter relationship to make you sever it entirely? And if you are a late person, good news - turns out you’re just wired differently.

Only Mothers Are Allowed To Be Tired  

A listener wants to know why her best friend is now suddenly acting superior after having a baby. It's 'mother martyr' syndrome and it's everywhere. Remember Hygge? That's over. The new hot lifestyle trend is Lagom. Would you let your partner dine alone with a member of the opposite sex? Mike Pence, the Vice President of the United States, has outlined his rules for marriage, and they are fascinating. A white woman was turned away from a multicultural playgroup and it’s exactly the kind of bad press that mums groups DON’T NEED. And saying 'No' is one of the hardest things to do: we have a trick that means you can do it without feeling like a jerk. Plus, S-Town, the book you should add to your pile, and Jessie has just discovered Pinterest....17 years after it started.

Do My Legs Look Good In This Power Suit?  

So many questions this week. Is the price of bananas about to skyrocket? If you give birth in a Cyclone should you name the baby after the Cyclone during which you birthed? If you're a powerful woman discussing national issues do you need to shave your legs so the paper can report on them instead of your important work? Can you claim to be into clean living, and still have botox? Have you ever been summoned to the bosses office and been asked to show your boobs? When someone says "did you have a GOOD weekend" are they actually asking if you got a shag in?  In a world of hustle and striving to be better, what happened to ever being "mediocre"? And we know teens want to get drunk and have sex, but what happens when things go wrong, are filmed, and then distributed all throughout the school? Have parents gone soft when it comes to cracking down?

Plus, the app, TV show and podcast recommendation for your downtime. Whenever the hell that is.

Phew.

Three Difficult Women  

Have you been called a "difficult" woman? This week Pia Miller, Home and Away actress was in Elle magazine, described as exhibiting a “zealous level of control”. Is the criticism justified? Or is a bossy woman inevitably a bitch? Also, is wolf whistling the worst, the three million dollar wedding that ended up in court, and why International Happiness Day is a crock. Plus, if you hate your body, and you aren’t convinced by the “body positivity movement” it’s time to embrace "body neutrality". And a listener in an open plan office is on the brink of insanity, what should she do?

Show notes

Death, Sex and Feminist Prefects  

Cartoonist Bill Leak died.  But rather than celebrating his life, many of his critics have vocally celebrated his death. Should we always respect someone in death, even if we didn’t agree with them?  The Girls episode that blew open a conversation many of us had been too afraid to have. Is there such thing as casual sexual assault? Plus - have you noticed anything about RomComs of late? There’s an argument that modern dating has changed the ‘happily ever after’ narrative for movies in Hollywood.
Plus, we're on Amal Clooney Bump Watch, Monique has had enough of sexualised songs on radio, Amy Schumer's new Netflix comedy gets roasted, and the Sydney School Boys who started the biggest conversation on International Women's Day.

A Rare And Extremely Special International Women's Day Edition  

This #IWD we are having a women's only show! Hosted by three women! Produced by an actual woman!  Talking about women's issues! Incredible!

Seriously, though. We talk about Emma Watson's Vanity Fair cover. There's a new move for equality for pedestrian crossing symbols. Have you heard of The Alpha Wife? They're ruining marriages. Should you fake an orgasm or is that just rewarding bad behaviour? And the most juicy dilemma; a listener whose best friend wants to ensnare her in a Pyramid scheme. Awks.

Justin Trudeau's Butt Is Not A Plaything  

It's the thinking woman's guilty pleasure but do we need to butt out on the Canadian Prime Minister's pants policy? The world's biggest Oscars stuff up revealed one hero who we need in our lives. Is it ever ok to say you don't want a man to babysit your child? Is the term 'basic bitch' offensive or just funny? The new penalty rates decision brings some workplace tension, but it's not the worst thing we've ever heard in the workplace.... and should Hot Cross Buns be an all year proposition or a sometimes food?

Sometimes Even The Real News Is Fake  

From an ageless Christie Brinkley posing on a magazine cover at 63 to "empower" women, to seeing Karl Stefanovic's new girlfriend papped in the media, there's a lot of things to call out this week. Should suicide be more widely reported in the media? We examine the ethics involved, compared to the need for awareness. Mia recaps the week in Trump, and we found a Kick Arse Woman Doing Kick Arse Things of Kick Arsery that will make your jaw drop.

Celebrity Pregnancies, Rules for Fashion and Boycotting Fifty Shades  

All the celebs are up the duff.  It's a Hollywood baby boom. Why does it make some women feel so terrible? There are calls to boycott Fifty Shades Darker, we examine the rules for fashion-at-a-certain-age, can teachers secretly play Kill, Marry, F*ck about students? Jessie roadtests Air-Tasker for a Valentines Day date, Monz found the best Kick Arse Women Doing Kick Arse Things of Kickarsery, and Mia Freedman ran into Anna Wintour in New York. No biggie.

Feminist Fight Club  

What happens when you give women a wine and say 'tell us what you really think'? This. We talk the Kardashian Book Club, sex lives of celebrities that we have no business in, when you commercialise your kids for your own monetary gain (looking at you Beyonce), whether career women make bad mothers, and it's Jessie's most daring love experiment yet. You'll need a Mintie after this one.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriends On The Loose  

Is Tziporah Malkah the most interesting woman on TV right now? She has some stiff competition because this week the NSW Minister for Women admitted she's pro-life, meteorologists said we need to dump the term 'weather girls', Melania Trump continued to look utterly despondent, and there was a crazy ex-girlfriend on Married At First Sight.  It's not all bad news though; we talk the AFL women's launch, and the kitchen trick that will transform your cheap wine into expensive tasting plonk.

Red Flags and Red Rags.  

We have a new Premier, a new President, and it's a new period. This week, it's kick arse women doing kick-arse things of kick-arsery: Gladys Berjiklian, Serena Williams and the Women's AFL are making us happy. There's A Dummies Guide to the Hottest 100, to get you through any conversation with your cool-factor intact. Is asking a dad permission for marriage completely outdated? And should having children be taught at school? Jessie road-tests a dating guru's advice with interesting results. The peculiar habit of never having enough tampons in the house, unfortunate overseas chemist experiences, and the game-changing podcast, brilliant film, and trashy TV show you need to get onto, pronto.

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?

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
