    Is ‘Wellness’ Just Another Word For Diet? And Coachella Madness

    After Work Drinks starstarstarstarstar
    add

    ‘Intuitive eating’ is the new buzzphrase taking over the wellness industry, but unlike other fad diets, this philosophy is something we can actually get behind. Off the back of our new attempt at body neutrality, we talk about our relationships with food, dieting and body image growing up, plus the effect Instagram has and the world’s ridiculous notion that overweight automatically equals unhealthy. Plus, it’s Coachella mania, complete with a Jordyn Woods/Kardashian run in and The Daily Mail’s gross reporting on Tammy Hembrow. And finally, Grace is upset that an AWD Book Club movement started without her.

    Is Marriage Irrelevant? And Meeting Kendall Jenner

    After Work Drinks starstarstarstarstar
    add

    We're in an era where women value their independence even more than ever - but we're still collectively as obsessed with marriage as we ever have been. Why? Izzy and Grace discuss the role of marriage in 2019 - is it even relevant anymore? What's the point? Are we just doing it for Instagram? Plus, a full debrief on meeting Kendall Jenner - and why there's still no mania like Kardashian mania.

    Why Are We All So Damn Impatient?

    After Work Drinks starstarstarstarstar
    add

    With the rise of the 'attention economy' and food, shopping, men and, well, literally everything a mere button away - we've all become impatient psychopaths. Or at least that's how Isabelle and Grace feel anyway. How much of patience has to do with being in control? And how is our lack of it affecting everything from our relationships to our mental health? Plus, Jacinda Ardern's response to the Christchurch terror attack proves that when women stop trying to lead like men, we excel. And let's talk 'The Ick' - fundamental part of dating? Or another sign that we're the generation who simply can't stick things out?

    Is Ambition Overrated?

    After Work Drinks starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Isabelle is back from Africa where she had an obnoxiously luxe few weeks (and met a racist named Lindy). We talk Elizabeth Holmes - the scandal everyone can't seem to get enough of. And in the wake of another ambition-gone-wrong tale, we question: Is ambition overrated? And are we working ourselves to death out of fear not doing so is going to let the feminist side down? Plus, a deep-dive on the Madeline McCann documentary.

    How Do We Deal With ‘Leaving Neverland’?

    After Work Drinks starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Surprise! It’s an early edition of After Work Drinks this week because let’s be honest, there’s nothing we’re going to want to talk about more than the Michael Jackson documentary (and shocking allegations of abuse in Leaving Neverland). Unlike R. Kelly’s ‘Ignition’, it feels futile and impossible to try and ban or remove Michael Jackson’s music so, if we believe Wade and James, how do we move forward? And why, after all we’ve learned from #MeToo, are we still seeing the credibility of victims be viciously undermined? Plus, on a lighter note, we have a few good watches, reads and listens to ingest and Zadie Smith’s tip for productivity.

    This episode deals with heavy issues including childhood sexual abuse. While we made the conscious decision not to discuss the allegations in any graphic detail, the topic may be distressing for some listeners. If you feel you need help, the below resources are helpful:

    After Work Drinks starstarstarstarstar
    add

    This episode our long awaited debrief of ~the~ celebrity interview of 2019 is here (It's irony people! That was obviously the Biebers). Grace is still espousing Konspiracy theories – but overall we’re just kind of bored of all this Kardashian business. Is 2019 the year we official stop karing about them altogether? Plus, Johnny Depp is suing Amber Heard for $70 million and it has, strangely, ignited some more girl-on-girl hatred toward Amber Heard. Why does she still inspire so much fury? And what does it say about feminism that we still can't make sense of the Depp/Heard allegations in 2019?

    We’re reuninted and boy does it feel good! Grace tells an unnecessarily long anecdote about her flight back to Australia and Isabelle brags about her upcoming trip to Botswanna – we break down Meghan Markle’s strangely #sponcon New York baby shower, and catch up on the latest Jordyn Woods drama, including her highly anticipated tell all interview. But most importantly, we’re talking OSCARS – dresses we loved, dresses we hated, that Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga performance and Rami and Lucy’s adorable PDA. On a more serious note, we deep dive on the Green Book controversy – warranted criticism or much ado about nothing?

    In our first international episode, Grace gives us all the London Fashion Week goss, while Izzy fills her in on everything that’s been happening in the real world, AKA with the Kardashians, since she’s been gone. From reports that Tristan Thompson cheated on Khloe Kardashian with Kylie Jenner's best friend, Jordyn Woods, to rumours Kim Kardashian is secretly helping brands rip off her designer clothing, it’s all go in Calabasas RN. Plus, our fave book of the year is being turned into a movie (love you, Reese Witherspoon) and our first (very brief) podcast guest.

    Grace is back from Tasmania and wasn't - as far as we know - possessed by a ghost and/or demon. Isabelle gives a thorough debrief of 'Abducted in Plain Sight' - the most batshit insane true documentary in the history of true crime documentaries; we talk about *that* Hailey Bieber/Justin Bieber profile and have a moment of silence for poor, poor Meghan Markle in the wake of Thomas' latest exploit. Plus, a deep-dive on Liam Neeson - does his insane admission about wanting to commit a racist attack 40 years ago (probably should have kept that one to yourself) fundamentally make him 'racist'? Or is sparking uncomfortable conversations about internalised racism and bias?

    After Work Drinks starstarstarstarstar

    Something's in the water because we've both developed a love for the great outdoors: Grace went rock climbing (and then Angelina Jolie copied her) and Isabelle literally went CAMPING. In other news, Prince George has gone missing and been replaced by a boy named Archie. Why the concept of 'pet faves' will help remedy a bad day and we discuss vanity in the Instagram era - are selfies making us (even more) self-obsessed?

    On New Year’s Resolutions And Money - The Last Great Taboo

    After Work Drinks starstarstarstarstar
    add

    We're back! For our first episode of 2019, we talk about New Year's resolutions - or lack thereof in Grace's case. Are they pointless or worth investing in? We break down the Golden Globes red carpet (which Fiji Water Girl undoubtedly won) and the latest buzz phrase, 'financial infidelity,' gets us on a money tangent. Why are we so afraid to discuss our finances with our friends? And is having a robust savings account a feminist act?

    Yael Stone's Geoffrey Rush Allegations & Tackling The 'Disease To Please'

    After Work Drinks starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Merry Christmas to everyone except MP Andrew Broad who ruined our week and the phrase 'G'Day Mate' forever with his embarrassing sexting scandal. On a more serious note, we unpack Australian actress Yael Stone's sexual harassment allegations against Geoffrey Rush, and look at why #MeToo hasn't taken off in Australia. Plus, what Oprah says goes - how to tackle our inherent desire to be people pleasers.

    On Grace Millane And The Cycles That Lead To Violence

    After Work Drinks starstarstarstarstar
    add

    We released this week’s episode a day early because of the latest update in the tragic story behind Grace Millane’s death: that the 26-year-old man who murdered her in New Zealand on December 1st was known as ‘creepy’ years before this happened. Senseless, violent acts like this stem from an inherent sexism engrained over years and it’s important that we address the patterns of behaviour at the root of the cause - not just whenever an innocent young woman loses her life. We had intended to cover more topics in this episode but ended up dedicating our entire discussion to Grace. It’s our most emotional recording to date as we discuss the cycles that lead to violence and the disgusting everyday acts of sexism women are expected to put up with.

    Good afternoon to everyone except Chris Dawson! In this episode, we discuss Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ insanely OTT wedding extravaganza (#SponCon?) and do a deep-dive into gaslighting and emotional abuse off the back of Mel B’s tell-all book. And, of course, we discuss the arrest of Chris Dawson, who has finally been charged with the murder of his wife, Lyn, 37 years later. We love you, Hedley.
