Ep 54 : Being A Gentleman in 2019 / The ‘Ick’

9/3/2019
More
What’s the difference between being a gentleman and being a lad? What’s the difference between being a gentleman and just generally being a good human? Has feminism killed the gentleman? Where do we go when we die? Just when things are starting to feel a little highbrow this week, it’s all brought back down to earth when Ellie belches into the microphone half way through the show. Ah well, it was nice while it lasted right?! Ellie and Anna also tackle the dreaded ‘ICK’ feeling in a...

Ep 53 : Humour in Relationships / The Modern Day Gentlewoman

8/27/2019
More
Hi! Do you believe in love at first sight? Or should I walk past again? Did it hurt when you fell from heaven? This week it’s chat up line GALORE as Ellie and Anna discuss the importance of humour in relationships, and how to deploy it expertly to diffuse arguments. Plus, Gemma Collins was in the headlines for making her stylist sniff her ‘yeasty’ vagina, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘scratch and sniff’, so Ellie and Anna explore what it means to be a ‘lady’ in 2019. We also...

Ep 52 : Love At First Sniff / Competing In Relationships

8/20/2019
More
Forget love at first sight, it’s all about love at first sniff. This week, Ellie and Anna hark back to the days of Lynx Africa and the Charlie SO! Fragrances as they discuss the importance of scent in attraction and relationships. We also get a bit high-brow as we do make some REAL LIFE SCIENCE on the show: A SMELL TEST. Can Anna sniff out husband Matt’s t-shirt amongst a shirt from a random man in the office (who was left shivering by the photocopier), and quite literally the shirt off...

EP 51 : Noisy Sex / Romantic Gestures

8/12/2019
More
When sex goes from hush hush to bang bang as you mature from creeping around as a teenager, to being a married woman with a mortgage, a child, another one on the way, and finally being able to sleep in the same room as your partner under your parents roof. The girls also come equipped with some handy tips if you yourself live under a ‘Mr or Mrs Stamina’, which come mainly in the form of a sleepy Ellie in a dressing gown, banging the ceiling with a broom in the middle of the night. Plus in...

EP 50 Faking It Till You Make It / Phrases We Want BANNED!

8/6/2019
More
This week dear listener, Ellie and Anna regale us with tales of their youth about times they used older relatives IDs to buy peach Archers and Lambrini, and when Ellie lied on her CV saying she was a journo so they sent her to interview a scouse man in prison. Unsurprisingly that was the last feature she wrote as a journalist. Certainly lots of faking, maybe not so much making it. Plus, in the week Jacob Rees-Mogg’s style guide was leaked to the press banning words and phrases like ‘very’...

Ep 48: Detox Diets / I Knew I Was Getting Old When…

7/23/2019
More
Diets for werewolves, getting excited over posh crockery and Ellie smashing the patriarchy by watching Magic Mike Live whilst her husband looks after the babe. What. A. Week. It’s bikini body season (and by that, we mean you have a body and a bikini) so the girls are venturing into the world of fad diets, diet myths and detoxing. The conclusion? Let’s sack it all in and get a large Margherita and a bottle of red wine. Plus this week our feeds have been saturated with leathery faces of...

Ep 47: Holiday Romances / Language Barriers

7/16/2019
More
Possums, wombats and a bull EE-I-EE-I-O. No, Ellie & Anna have not invested in farmland (as far as I know), but these animals do all feature in this week's episode, as the girls discover how language barriers can affect relationships. Plus, why's it so easy to "fall in love" when you're on holiday? In pursuit of the answer to that question, Anna shares a sexy story about a head brace-based snog she experienced with a boy named Bug Breath. The girls also delve into the Top Three Holiday...

Ep 46: The L-word / Modern Day Dating Milestones

7/9/2019
More
I LOVE YOU! Was it too soon tell you that? Maybe a podcast description just wasn't the right place to let you know. Thankfully, Ellie & Anna are here to clue us up on the dos and don'ts of saying the three words that mean the most. There are rules, stats and some interesting views on lip-kissing your dad! Plus, modern day dating milestones! Remember when meeting the in-laws was a the biggest hurdle in any new relationship? Well, those days a long gone! Now, it's all about being invited into...

7/2/2019

This week, Ellie & Anna mark the end of Pride Month by sharing a couple of difference perspectives on coming out. One experience exists at the end of a phone line, the other at the end of Anna's family tree! Plus, are millennials having less sex than ever before, or is technology making it even easier to get laid? The girls explore those questions with the help of Brian, a 22-year-old male virgin.

Ep 44: Bad Sex / Relationship Regret

6/25/2019
More
First issue on the agenda this week? Hay fever-based noises! From the humble sniffle to something resembling a spluttering steam engine - we've got them all! It's not so much a topic of conversation, more a warning, if you're one of the few (sensible) listeners who reads this blurb/disclaimer before diving in. ACTUAL ISSUE NO.1: How do you tell a sexual bedfellow that they're not hitting the spot? That's where we begin this week. Ellie & Anna are joined by Sex & Relationship Coach, Louisa...

Ep 43: Father's Day / Advice

6/18/2019
More
It's Father's Day! Or, at least it was Father's Day. So, who better to join the girls than host of fathering podcast 'Don't Tell Your Mum' and Heart Dad, JK! Following a quick warm up, which mainly consists of ropey Darth Vader impressions, it's straight onto what Dad's really want on their big day. Turns out it's not giant frying pans or personalised Toblerone - who knew?! Also this week, Ellie & Anna discuss giving advice to your younger self and explain the intricacies of the "strawpedo".

Ep 42: Cheating / Gossip

6/11/2019
More
This week, Ellie and Anna explore "The Top Five Types of Cheating"... two of them don't even involve another person. Turns out, however, they could involve your coppers/gherkin jar and Anna's former gardener, Vince (The Prince). Also, gossip! Why it's good for us, when it backfires AND why, if you're planning a secret proposal, it's probably best to keep the proposal secret. Simple advice, easy to follow.

Ep 41: Body Modifications / Buying Under The Influence

6/4/2019
More
Classy: An adjective, meaning stylish and sophisticated. Unless, of course, you're Anna Whitehouse, who's got other ideas. All will be revealed as the girls discuss body modifications and how they affect your relationship! Also on the menu this week - the purchases you make "under the influence". We're not necessarily talking booze, either. What about those big "romantic" gestures that cost the earth... but are often made prematurely under the guise of true love!

Ep 40: Everyday Heroes / Digital Parenting

5/28/2019
More
This week, Ellie & Anna celebrate our 'Everyday Heroes' and explore 'Digital Parenting'. Plus, Anna's folks may have unlocked the secret to a long and successful marriage! You'll be pleased to hear that it involved carrots... and an aggressive melon. Providing very little counter balance to that revelation, is Ellie's story about her dad's (yet undiagnosed) psychopathic tendencies.

Ep 39: Reliving Your Youth / Life Deadlines

5/21/2019
More
HOW OLD IS TOO OLD TO BE AT DA CLUB? Well, according to "the people" - or 5000 of them, at least - it's younger than Anna is, and trust me, she's still very much (annually) at da club! Despite her aggressive passion for the nightlife, she won't be "Russian" to the final of Britain's Next Top Mixologist* any time soon - a joke that should make sense if you make it that far through this week's episode. To camp Ellie, where the pressure's on in the inaugural (and only) "D of E Off" - we're...

Ep 38: The Royal Baby / Birthday Struggles

5/14/2019

Ellie & Anna officially welcome "young Archie-chops" into the people's nook, as they discuss the royal arrival! There's advice from Anna on how much padding should be involved when wearing white post-birth, and the girls share your "my labour was overshadowed by..." stories. Plus, we delve into Anna's husband's calendar, and find out what "accounts due" really means (and why she probably shouldn't have made this discovery on the eve of her birthday)!

EP 37: Greetings / Millennial Dating

5/7/2019

ELLIE TAYLOR AND HER UNCLE HARRY'S WET EXCHANGE. The hottest new indie band to come out of the UK, or an awkward family-based greeting gone wrong?

Plus, Anna campaigns to bring back the high five, and the girls play a game of "Snog, Marry, Swipe", as they consider how they'd cope dating in the modern day.

Guess who's back, back again!? It's comedian, writer, actor and former vodka luge operative/hostess, Ellie Taylor! She's also a new mum (which is where she's been for some months). She returns with a spring in her step and joyous tales of early motherhood - you definitely won't hear horror stories that involve shower caps and blocked toilets. Definitely not.
