...a podcast straight from the twatmosphere. Comedian Kirsty Hudson and author Rebecca Elliott are determined to find the funny in everything, or at least pass the time by taking the piss out of each other - join them as they have the most meaningless small talk about life’s most meaningful questions. Real women having real discussions about real life (in an often really ridiculous way).

School Days

10/11/2019
More
This week we’re walking those stinky school corridors again, re-visiting the highs and lows and the down-right butt-clenchingly (or otherwise) embarrassing moments we all experienced... We ponder over whether Kirsty should have been able to keep her shaved initials in her hair or Rebecca was actually well within her rights to be smoking in the school toilets. Our Butters share their most hilariously embarrassing school moments. Why is school a dystopian nightmare for some...a festival of...

Dieting

10/4/2019
More
This week we ravishingly eat up all things diet related ... why do we so want to believe in them.. even the ones that make us smell like cabbage and eat deadly worms, when they seem to have the power to make us all unhappy? In our desperate attempts, filled with shame and judgement, to eat less and punish our bodies do we perhaps forget that food is life and life is fun, and that perhaps inside every thin girl there's a fat girl trying to eat her way out? Also features the joyful mental...

Disability

9/26/2019
More
In a conversation that Kirsty rates 5 stars (but then she’s easily pleased), we swallow back the fear of offending and frankly getting things all kinds of wrong and delve in to the issues surrounding disabilities. Why when 1 in 5 people in the UK are disabled aren’t they similarly represented on our TV screens? Are disabled people fed up with being either pitied or held up as heroes? Why isn't everyone valued and deemed to be exactly enough just as they are? And why isn’t Kirsty suitably...

Parties

9/20/2019
More
This week, now with the help of our lovely listeners - the ‘Butters’, we line up the shots and vol-au-vents and discuss the very best and worst of soirees and shindigs. Should other people clear up at your party? Is there too much pressure on NYE to ever enjoy it? Will Kirsty ever leave the buffet table? And what should one do if a guest gets her breasts stuck in her zip whilst another is eating a frozen snake? Whatever the answers may be there's no doubt this is THE place to be, and you’re...

Womanhood

9/6/2019
More
What does it mean to be a woman? Is it ok to draw any distinctions between the genders? Are women supportive of each other? Is it insulting for a woman to be referred to as a ‘girl’? Does Kirsty’s new ‘serious’ voice mask our inabilities to grapple with such a weighty subject? And when oh when will we hear a woman fart in a movie?

Identity

8/30/2019
More
Who are you? A question of course initially posed by renowed philosopher Roger Daltrey. This week we also ponder the issues of identity; How much of ourselves die when our loved ones die? How much of our identity is lactated away when we become a mother? What should you do when you wave at someone then realise it's your own reflection in a mirror? And will Kirsty ever be able to say 'unfathomable'? Whatever you do, the conclusion is clear - just be yourself. Unles you're a twat. Then try...

Bewildered

8/23/2019
More
Rebecca and Kirsty merely scratch the surface of their known unknowns; the stuff they simply do not understand, from gravity to the hangy bits in t-shirts, from LinkedIn to the evolution of monkeys who decided they couldn’t be bothered to turn in to humans... If you’ve ever felt ignorant, give this a listen. It will give your comparative intelligence one hell of a boost.

Summer Holidays

8/16/2019
More
Six weeks of being grounded with the whole family, or maybe you’re lucky enough to brave the airless hell-hole of anxiety that is the airport so you call yell at your kids to ‘stop wielding stuff’ in a whole different continent. Whatever your summer holds, we’re here for you, discussing the hidden perils of mashed potato on a long boat, finding out you were matched to your painfully dull exchange student Helga because of your similar personalities, and testing your marriage to breaking...

Friendship

8/8/2019
More
Join on us on the beautiful journey that is friendship as we plait each other’s hair and have feathery pillow fights yet still make time to take a detour into the similarities between parents and bras. We rip in to what bonds and ask, is it the friends who smell together stay together? If you’re a friend in need, we are your friends indeed...

What if... part 2

8/1/2019
More
The excitement continues in this much anticipated part two of Kirsty and Rebecca tackling life’s most fundamental ‘What If’ Questions. This week we battle to keep things clean as the discussion varies from the giant sweaty ‘spoon beast’ that emerges when canoodling in the heat, Rebecca’s distracting cleavage, and an honest answer to, ‘what if you woke up as a man, what would you do?’

What if...? Part 1

7/26/2019
More
This week Rebecca and Kirsty discuss vital 'what if...' questions. Delving into the fear of pooping in Space and tackling the merits of a good wine like Shnuffly Du Blanc. We don’t even shy away from exploring the gravitas of whether Edam deserves to be considered a cheese and the mind blowing fact that out bodies will never actually turn into a cup of tea...enjoy.

Money

7/18/2019
More
This week Rebeca and Kirsty embrace that taboo that none of us like talking about - MONEY. That elusive stuff that buys you more stuff so you have to keep buying bigger stuff to keep your stuff in. They say it can’t buy you happiness and in this case they’re absolutely right because this 50 minutes of joy comes at you for free. So sit back and let us make a sizeable deposit into your hole in the wall. Enjoy.

Emotions

7/11/2019
More
Emotions run high as Rebecca and Kirsty discuss their deepest feelings on ridiculously happy people, crying in public, over-sharing, over-analysing, anxiety about yoghurt purchases and the distress caused by leaving bite-marks in the cheddar.

Sleep

7/4/2019
More
Get your silk pyjamas on, slide around the bed and audibly spoon us as we discuss the time-travelling, mini-death weirdness that is sleep .

Beauty

6/27/2019
More
This week Rebecca and Kirsty discuss beauty; from the unattainable ideals put on us by societal pressures, to the simple beauty of a fart in the bath. Enjoy, all you beautiful people.

Beliefs

6/20/2019
More
This week we throw caution to the stinky wind and discuss the potentially polarizing subject of beliefs - from Rebecca’s childhood belief that she was a star of a TV show where viewers could see her farts, to Kirsty’s conviction that God would love a roast potato. Covered with equal moronic incompetence are questions of fate, aliens, God, politics, conspiracy theories, freewill, astrology and past lives. The only issue actually settled is a mutually agreeable solution to the vital...

Clothes

6/14/2019
More
This week we talk clothing, discussing everything from puffer jackets looking like bin bags to the stress of changing in shops with the curtain and mirrors of shame; from actively ignoring the advice for dressing for your body shape to whether it's ever possible to look sexy in a cardigan; and ultimately agreeing that if we can find a clean pair of knickers in the morning, we're winning at life.

Failure

6/7/2019
More
This week we tackle head-on the familiar beast that is failure - from exams to over-enthusiastic eyebrow maintenance, from driving tests to epic cookery fails leading to grisly (or should that be grizzly?) birthday cakes, from parental guilt to weeing yourself in Iceland, we've all been there (well maybe not that last one). Failure is a part of life, so do you keep picking yourself up and trying again or at some point do you say, 'do you know what, this isn't my thing but I managed to get...

The Gym

5/30/2019
More
This week we go, reluctantly, to the gym and flap our bits at others in the changing rooms before leaving a sweaty triangle on all the gym equipment, farting in the yoga class and peeing in the pool. Come join us. It might not sound appealing but we promise you’ll feel better afterwards.

Ageing

5/24/2019
More
Ageing - something to detest and delay as long as possible or something to embrace and value? Rebecca and Kirsty verbally meander through the good and bad of ageing, from saggy boobs and loneliness to the joy of an early night and streaking through the house when you've forgotten your pants. If nothing else they ultimately prove that the wrinkles and grey hairs don’t matter, as stupidity is ageless.
