#34 Interview with Syreeta ChallingerThe Fringe Of It add
The only way to describe our guest on this episode and the journey that life has taken her on, is a Phoenix rising from the ashes. Syreeta Challinger and her husband Rob are the duo behind MOSS: Moments of Sense of Style which is a business that has the most incredible story. The pair met in Hong Kong, and whilst on holiday in 2014 in Australia Rob suffered a brain haemorrhage and stroke. In their words 'The brand was born from a desire to create light out of the darkness; an innovative and conceptual approach to dealing with life changing events'. They produce the most beautiful products, and each product is integral to their story, lovingly and proudly made in England. We discuss starting again, learning to slow down and soul searching when it comes to identity and your purpose in life. This episode is a really heavy one, in the best way possible, thank you Syreeta for being so open and vulnerable in sharing your story. On the flip side we really dedicate too much time to discussing Christmas adverts, gold cutlery and eBay wins!

#27 Discussing Influencers & Life OnlineThe Fringe Of It add
In this episode we discuss getting our periods, our new favourite TV favourites, including 'Trust, The House Of Getty', The Circle, Killing Eve and of course GBBO where we put Liv's spelling to the test. Shopping wise Charlotte's been hitting the make-up counters and Liv discusses the revival of the Cowboy boot and her style icon Steve Coogan. In this week's discussion we talk about influencers and what responsibility you have when living your life online. Where do you draw the line when it comes to sharing, do you have to bare your soul to have a genuine connection to your audience? So many questions, and so many uses of the word interesting to note too.
#26 Activism & Changing The Law With Gina MartinThe Fringe Of It add

We are BACK! After nearly a month off, here we are with season two. This episode is a big old catch up of what we have been up to over the summer, including Planes, Trains and Automobiles. There's the familiar shopping chat, Liv's made a big purchase and Charlotte has been suit shopping. In Telly Talk, we get stuck into the new series of the GBBO and the show on everyone's lips: Bodyguard. Plus our new section 'Fridge Fantasy' is dedicated to discussing our favourite foodie delights of the week. We hope you enjoy!

#24 Being Your Own Best Friend (Live Recording)The Fringe Of It add
This episode of The Fringe Of It is brought to you by Origins, and was recorded in front of a live audience at The Hoxton, Holborn on Wednesday 8th of August. Liv took Charlotte to see Mamma Mia 2 kicking and screaming, but what did she think of it? Also Autumn Winter dressing is on the horizon and we discuss the finer (and the jumbo) details of our favourite cord suits. The discussion this week is all about being 'Your Own Best Friend'. As we started the podcast on the note of friendship, we thought the season finale should look at ways that you can be your own cheerleader, and there are lots of helpful tips from the audience. We'd like to thank you for all your support over the past four months, we really love every single one of you for making it what it is. As always join in the fun in the Facebook group, and we'll be back in your ears on the 10th of September for season two.

#23 Starting A Podcast & Reflecting On Series 1The Fringe Of It add
Firstly, a huge apology for the delay in sharing the episode this week- due to unforeseen circumstances it's a week delayed, so all references to our live event are now outdated (with out final episode also up this week)!
It's the penultimate episode of series one of The Fringe of It, and this week we're reflecting over the last 23 weeks and revisiting some of our favourite episodes- from body image, friendship and comparison. We talk about why we began the podcast and some of our biggest lessons from the last few months. Naturally, we also squeeze in a chat about some new watches, including The Incredibles 2, and I continue to work on converting Charlotte to love Mamma Mia. Some things never change...
#22 A Catch UpThe Fringe Of It add
Just to let you know, we briefly talk about suicide (15:35) and racism in this episode (31:44).
This week we have a long catch up, firstly starting with the weather because would we be British if we didn’t? In Telly Talk it’s the penultimate of Liv’s ‘Love Island Minute’ - Liv also discusses Mamma Mia 2, Disney’s Coco and Christopher Robin. Meanwhile Charlotte’s been watching Anthony Bourdain’s back catalogue, continuing with Dietland, and is now Ladygaga’s number fan after watching her documentary Five Foot Two. Alongside TV, we discuss the book ‘Why I am No Longer Talking to White People About Race’ by Reni Eddo-Lodge.
In shopping we learn what dream Gucci item Liv is lusting over, and Charlotte’s new favourite cheese (you really get it all on this podcast). Alongside this we discuss visiting Sheffield, going pescatarian for a week and a few of our favourite new apps.

#21 Live Podcast Recording with Fresh | Discussing RelaxationThe Fringe Of It add
This week's episode was recorded on Thursday 19th of July in partnership with Fresh on Marylebone High Street in front of an audience of 25(ish) people. In Telly Talk Charlotte gets confused between the new Queen film trailer and the released press shot of Olivia Coleman in the Crown, happens to the best of us. She also tries to explain Dietland, might have to wait until next week for a more through explanation. Liv gives us a run down on the most talked about show of the summer in her 'Love Island Minute'. We discuss our favourite Monki buys, the comeback of Reebok Classic and the book This is Going to Hurt. This week's topic discusses relaxation and ways in which we switch off, and we answer a few questions from the audience.
#20 Let's Talk About MoneyThe Fringe Of It add
This week's episode is a long one! Shopping wise we find out what Liv's been buying at Sezane, what floral purchases Charlotte has been picking up. In TV we discuss the season two of GLOW on Netflix, continue talking about the The World Cup where we applaud Gareth Southgate's Positive Mental Attitude, and we also look at some of the social issues around football. Are elements of it sexist and homophobic? In this week's topic we get stuck into the gigantic topic of money, and why is it such a taboo? Talking about some money mistakes, money mangement, and some money resources we enjoy. However we feel we've barley scratched the surface, so expect a money follow up!
#19 Going On Holiday & Switching OffThe Fringe Of It add
This week's episode comes to you down the line and is a bit of a deep ol' episode (for us anyway)! In telly chat we discuss the fact we are now fully established football fans (cough), with your 60 second weekly Love Island update too, for good measure. We also discuss body confidence in summer, having a bad week and this weeks topic: going on holiday and the pressure of travel. We talk about our favourite holidays, how travel has changed because of the 'Instagram Generation' and why it's important to allow yourself to have a break. As always, come and join the fun in the Fringe of It Facebook group too! See you next week.

#16 Discussing Unpopular OpinionsThe Fringe Of It add
Once internet friends, and now friends IRL, self confessed and old before before their time bloggers, Liv Purvis and Charlotte Jacklin record their debut podcast series. 'The Fringe of It' is a weekly podcast from these two slightly out of touch, early grandma's (wishing they had their own radio show), navigating their way through millennial life, and laughing a lot in between. This is our sixteenth episode in which we discuss unpopular opinions, with a side of shopping and the latest TV.
