SO GOOD

This quickly became one of my all time favourite podcasts... please come back soon!! I usually listen to true crime & news podcasts, but I find this show a really nice break from those kinds of shows. I generally love everything about this show, except I would have liked a more thorough episode about how to make friends as an adult. Even though I really enjoyed that one, I didn’t find that the live-show format permitted the same insightful and relatable content as other episodes have, and I think it’s a really important subject which I’d love to hear more on from you!

Love it!!!

Yumi this podcast is the best and so are you for bringing up these topics for all us women. Whether I relate to the topic or not I always take some bit of insight from every episode. You add fun and honesty to topics and have also shared some of your history which is not always easy. So I say Thank You and keep up the great work. P.S I was at the live gig in Brisbane w the bang on Ladies. You were directly behind me when we were leaving the venue. I so wanted to turn around and tell you how much I love this podcast and what you do but I knew I would fangirl way too much!!

Fantastic!

If your a woman - you need to listen to this podcast!!! Warm, engaging conversations about important things we don’t talk about or find waaaay to embarrassing to talk about. I cannot say thankyou enough to the cast and production team who put these episodes together. And if your a guy - it could be worthwhile also having a listen 😃

STI ep

I was super keen to listen to this episode as someone who cares about people achieving their optimal health and as someone who has experienced the herpes stigma. In some ways I think they did try to address the stigma but in other ways perpetuated it. We need to be advocating for open honest relationships not some dark hole of the internet to send an anonymous text. I understand that this may be the most accessible/comfortable option for some people but also promoting strategies to help have an open conversation is key. STIs and especially herpes is a regular normal part of life, we shouldn’t need to hide them and promoting anonymity supports secrecy.Also, there was a time herpes negatively impacted my quality of life but with proper management, lifestyle changes (mainly diet and stress management), combating stigma and a lot of frank conversations, I am able to live a (what I believe) satisfying, happy life. I found the interview with doctor jarring as they seemed to only focus on the negative consequences; pain, low quality of life, depression etc, doing this elicits fear and shame. I agree we must normalise STIs and these experiences but we need to do so in a positive and open way! I will keep listening and hope we can continue along this journey learning from one another!

Great podcast!

I’ve really enjoyed listening to this podcast and the range of topics discussed. It’s great hearing open and honest conversations about all the different (and similar) experiences we have as women. Such a wonderful antidote to the narrow idealised stereotypes we’re constantly served up and exposed to....its great to hear what a wide range of experiences of body, emotions and mind constitutes ‘normal’ - excellent! Can we please have an episode on sustainable menstrual products including the menstrual cup? I wish someone had introduced these to me 30 years ago - I could have save myself and the planet a lot of grief!

Disappointing and gender stereotyping

‘Toxic mums’ fell into stereotypes of what mums ‘should’ be and what relationships with daughters ‘should’ be. Emily suffered domestic violence- 1800 respect number should have been given and behaviour called such rather than toxic. Clare suffered a difficult relationship with family (her words). Why frame as ‘toxic mum’? Dads - if relevant to these women’s stories - get off scott free.

Brilliant

I adore this podcast. I don’t think I’ve ever felt such strong responses to such a variety of topics. Yumi is a brilliant host.

Wow

Good episode but the lady (kristy) in the STI episode is truly disgraceful. Cheating and knowledgeably passing on an STD. No words.

Yaaaaaaaaaaas!🙌🏼🙌🏼

I. Freaking. Love. This. Podcast! I started with the episode on mental load and immediately shared it with all of my girlfriends. I grew up with a mama who didn’t broach any uncomfortable topic so there was a lot of trial and error for me and shame about totally normal things. Wish I had a girl to share this all with (but no need to worry, my 3 boys will be so knowledgeable about the female struggle!)

Better than Sex Ed

This is the information I wish I had learned in high school... better late than never. I love how plain spoken this is.
