Episode 18 - Faith Part 1

Episode 17 - Affirmative Action

August 20, 2015

Hello! In this week’s episode we discuss affirmative action, Australian politics, gender, race, and the fact that our views are boringly similar on these topics. We also review Trainwreck (the movie), Matilda (the musical), Amy (a documentary about Amy Winehouse), and Bikes vs Cars (a documentary about bikes and cars).

Sarah realised post-podcast that Bill Hayden was actually the governor general, and Annelise also realised, upon relistening to the conversation, that she, too, had made a mistake, although she can’t for the life of her remember what it was.

Episode 16 - Girly Girls

August 04, 2015

This week it's Sonia and Annelise discussing "girliness" and gender stereotypes, Barbies, The Wiggles (again), Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay, and racism (and variations of on all of these themes).

Episode 15 - Parental Expectations

July 30, 2015

In this week's episode we discuss parents' expectations for their kids' health and education, from the perspective of a paediatrician (Sarah), a teacher (Sonia), and a possibly-overly-chillaxed parent (Annelise). We also review Barbara Kingsolver's Flight Behaviour (now that Sarah's finished it), and despite our misgivings, we agreed post-podcast that we think you should read it.

Episode 14 - Binging and Quietness

July 07, 2015

This week we chat about binge-watching/listening and taking time away from noise and entertainment. We also talk about Flight Behaviour by Barbara Kingsolver (or "Kingslover," as Sonia calls her), Lexicon by Max Barry, Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout, This House of Grief by Helen Garner, and the Pixar film Inside Out. Oh, and also Orange is the New Black (but that goes without saying at this point).

Episode 10 - Cairns and Confidence

June 02, 2015

Sarah and Annelise are on the same side of the Skype call this week, as we chat about self-doubt, and whether it's only women who struggle with the feeling that they don't know what they're talking about...
