Jack Grealish appreciation pod

What’s your issue: Swamp crotch
16:41This week’s ep covers it all - Bitcoin, our new girl band ‘Swamp Crotch’ and (in yet another example of us giving the people what they want) Anna imparts some utterly horrific medical advice RE mouth ulcers. YOU’RE WELCOME.
The Bennifer 69
37:20Periods. Most women have them but why are we still embarrassed to talk about them? We’re joined by broadcaster Emma Barnett to chat about her book ‘Period. It’s About Bloody Time’ which is out in paperback TODAY! Plus why is the childcare system in the UK so broken? We discuss the need for an urgent review into the system that currently means some women spend over 60% of their salary on nursery fees. And most importantly of all, after seeing the pap snaps of Bennifer smooching at a fancy restaurant in LA, we talk PDAs and Ellie’s aggressive snogging technique.
What’s your issue: A rampant bush
13:26We’re answering some very heated issues this week. What counts as a staycation? Should we be investing in bitcoin? Plus Anna reckons she only has to shave her legs once a month. I think we can call bullshit.
Anna’s battle against the thins
40:33This week we’re tackling the big stuff: Anna’s hatred for thin snacks. Plus we chat about Ellie’s dad parring her off for some train fans on Father’s Day and Chrissy Teigen apologising for being a troll. We also speak to the fabulous Lorraine Candy, former editor in chief of Elle UK, to chat about the challenges of raising teenage daughters and the menopause. Lorraine’s book 'Mum, What's Wrong with You?': 101 Things Only Mothers of Teenage Girls Know is out now.
What’s your issue: Yoghurt, the cure for heartbreak
20:33We are tackling the BIG issues this week on the pod. Is it weird to call your parents mummy and daddy as an adult? Is it hypocritical for you to get pissed off that your 18-year-old just wants to drink White Lightning in the park?
Guggy the vagina

What's your issue: Thigh buffer
15:05This week we discuss lack of hooks in women’s toilets and Ellie reveals her patented ‘clench your handbag in your gob like a golden retriever with a frisbee’ method. The girls also get competitive about how many teeth they have (we’ve all been there) and we finish with some absolutely cracking ‘building waste and the correct sized skip’ content from Anna. You can’t say it’s not varied.
The sacrificial selfie seat
30:23This week the ladz discuss the Friends reunion (can you imagine the budget involved to get Biebs in the spud outfit), sending undies pics to personal trainers, plus we chat to author Daisy Buchanan about the importance of female pleasureeeee in novels and her book ‘Insatiable’.
What’s your issue: If in doubt, pee
12:27Can kids TV presenters get mash up? Is it ok to label a nap as a ‘meeting’? Why did Anna back herself into a metaphorical corner with non-metaphorical nachos? All these huge questions and many more as the girls once again attempt to solve listeners’ issues.
