If I've Got To Talk To You We Can No Longer Be Friends

Jessie finds Skype confronting, Mia finds talking on the phone problematic and Holly? Well, she agrees, but have we gotten a little lazy about our friendships because of social media? Plus, we thought it might happen, and now Natalie Joyce has given her first interview about the whole Barnaby Joyce Vicki Campion scandal. But should she be blaming Barnaby more than Vicki? And it’s time to #PrayForMeghan. The Duchess of Sussex can no longer wear colour and it’s all because of the...


Do My Boobs Look Small In This?

There's a lot going on this week... Science says cats are better than dogs, we do a whole segment on men and their feelings and we talk about boobs. Specifically, what do you tell people if you've had a breast reduction but don't want to say you've had said reduction? It's a tricky one. Plus, Beyonce and Jay Z have just released a new album together. Two years on from the album where she told the world he was a lying, cheating dog, which begs the question is this the most public patch up...


Blame It On The Super Moon

Don't blame it on the sunshine. Don't blame it on the moonlight. Don't blame it on the good times. Blame it on the super moon. That's what Mia is telling herself anyway. After a week of feeling very emotional, we ask an expert whether or not the moon has anything to do with how people are feeling at the moment. Plus, what do you do when you want to see a movie but all the reviews are shit? Holly wants to see Oceans 8 but the critics say it's not a good idea so now she's...


We Will All Remember Eurydice Dixon

To support Eurydice's family you can find the Go Fund Me Page here. In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Eurydice Dixon’s body was found on a Melbourne soccer field, between Royal Parade and Princes Park Drive in Carlton North. On Thursday afternoon, a 19-year-old man was arrested for the rape and murder of the 22-year-old aspiring comedian. The young comedian was on top of the world after performing a successful stand-up gig in the CBD but she would never make it home. Her body was...


Donald And Kim And Victoria And David

There is one thing the world is talking about today, and it’s two blokes shaking hands in Singapore. Should we be happy? Should we be scared? Did Donald Trump do something good? Let’s discuss. Plus, we break down those Beckham breakup rumours. And you might currently be smothered by the love of a tiny child, but if you’re at the other end of parenting, how does it feel when your child pulls away?

Check On Your Strong Friend

So many women own a bag, purse, or phone-case emblazoned with the name Kate Spade. And on Wednesday, this iconic designer was found dead in her home in New York, shocking everyone. So what are the conversations we should be having around her death? Plus, if you’re seeing Sex And The City everywhere in your feeds this week, it’s because it is officially 20 years old. So what do Carrie and her mates mean to young feminists? If you or anyone you know needs help contact: Lifeline on 13 11 14...


Get Your Eggs On Ice

We need to talk about eggs. Not the ones you eat for breakfast but the ones, if you are a woman, you’ve got in your ovaries. Why you ask? Because Rachel froze hers this week and we have a LOT of questions. Plus, we unpack the interview with Barnaby Joyce and Vicki Campion that has everyone talking. And #MeToo is back in a big way so we get you up to speed on everything you need to know. THE END BITS Hosts: Jessie Stephens, Mia Freedman and Rachel Corbett Producer: Elissa Ratliff COME...


Welcome To Our Wolfpack

Many moons ago we had a conversation about how there are two types of women, poodles, and wolves. Everyone wanted to be a poodle. But now, everyone wants to be a wolf. Why? Because former Olympic soccer player Abby Wambach made a rousing speech and urged all women to be the wolf instead of Little Red Riding Hood in their lives. And to that, we say preach. Plus, we finally discuss The Rachel Divide, the Netflix documentary that has the world talking. The End Bits Hosts: Holly Wainwright,...


Barnaby Joyce Might Be Australia's Worst Boyfriend

Is Barnaby Joyce Australia’s worst boyfriend? It’s a big call, but the former Deputy Prime Minister continues to throw his girlfriend and mother of his fifth child, Vicki Campion, under the bus. Plus, Roseanne Barr made an outrageous comment on Twitter and her show was cancelled, so is it because there was a woman in charge? And, do you shave your legs using just water or soap? We need to talk... The End Bits Hosts: Holly Wainwright, Mia Freedman and Rachel Corbett Producer: Elissa...


Repeal The 8th

Today, on the other side of the world, there’s a referendum going on. Ireland is voting on whether to legalise abortion for the first time. But did you know abortion is still not legal in New South Wales? Plus, apparently, you are supposed to have saved the equivalent of twice your annual salary before you are 35. And you are meant to pay your ex a break-up fee when you dump them...Yep, we need to talk money... The End Bits Hosts: Holly Wainwright, Jessie Stephens and Rachel...


Don't Get Trapped In the Venting Vortex

Do you like to go get a coffee with your workmate and VENT about everyone in the office who is annoying you? WELL, far from it being good to ‘get things off your chest’, that rant might be doing you harm... Plus, are we the only ones who have royal wedding hangovers? We need to debrief about our complicated feelings.

Put your feminism aside, this is a dirty debrief on the wedding the world won't stop talking about.

I'm Too Sexy For This Fish

People are actually getting turned on by fish sex. And it is now an actual thing in pop culture. So there’s a fun fact for your Wednesday. Plus, the royal wedding is three days away. The lawns are mowed, the tea towels are made - but Meghan Markle’s dad is NOT going to be there. And, have you ever dated a bloke that hits the accelerator too fast on your relationship and then freaks out? There’s a name for that. The End Bits Hosts: Holly Wainwright, Jessie Stephens and Mia...


Meghan Markle Had A Baked Beans Husband

You know how often in life and certainly in Hollywood, the person someone is married to before they find success is not the person they STAY married to once they hit the big time? There’s a term for that and it involves baked beans. Plus, what is digital blackface and how do you avoid it? And Mia recommends the perfume that will leave you smelling like Lisa Wilkinson for half the price. THE END BITS Hosts: Holly Wainwright, Jessie Stephens and Mia Freedman Producer: Elissa...


Job Interviews and Morning Sickness Don't Mix

How do you go about getting a new job when you are pregnant? We’ve got a group therapy question that has Holly and Mia a bit conflicted. Plus, How do you police consent? This week, Four Corners told the story of Saxon Mullins, a young woman whose sexually assault in Sydney's Kings Cross was the beginning of a five-year legal ordeal. And is it problematic to have a special section of books for Single Women? The End Bits Hosts: Holly Wainwright, Jessie Stephens and Mia...


How Four Corners Met Saxon Mullins

This week, the ABC's Four Corners program I Am That Girl followed the story of Saxon Mullins, a young woman whose sexual assault in Kings Cross was the beginning of a five-year legal ordeal. In this special episode, Holly and Jessie speak to investigative reporter Louise Milligan about how the show came together, the increasingly complex issues around consent, and how we all support Saxon in a tangible way.

The Harry Potter Generation Is Here To Save The World

And Mia met the French President, Emmanuel Macron and she needs to tell us about it. Bad. THE END BITS Hosts: Holly Wainwright,...


'I Want To Be Rich' And Other Things Women Can't Say

Season Two of The Handmaid’s Tale is out, but should you be watching it? Or is it seriously problematic? Plus, an article called ‘I want to be rich and I’m not sorry’ is going viral on the interwebs, but is it only because it is written by a woman? Jessie thinks no and Holly thinks yes. And Mia has a beautiful recommendation that will bring tears to your eyes.

Quit Your Job And Find A New Friend

Should you ever tell your boss exactly what you think of them, even if you're leaving? It’s the group therapy question we’ve all dreamed of writing, but according to Mia there is only one dignified way to leave a job. Plus, Amy Schumer has a 'no new friends' policy and we can’t work out if it’s genius or just a little smug. And pert nipples. Apparently, fillers in your fiddly bits are all the rage.
