Poppy King Is Back, Baby

1/28/2024
Subscribe to Mamamia In 1991, Poppy King launched a range of seven matt lipsticks, named after the seven deadly sins. She was 19 years old. Within three years, the company had grown to be one of the biggest cosmetic companies in Australia. In 1995 she received the Young Australian Of The Year award and that year the company made a profit of $6.5 million. A few years later though, Poppy shut it down and moved to the US. Poppy has always been a leader, not a follower and she’s always been an original thinker in a way that has not necessarily made it easy for her. Which is what makes her next move so unexpected. Check out Poppy King's cult classic lipsticks from the 90's, re-released here. THE END BITS: Poppy King is on Instagram here. Feedback? We’re listening!

Not Just Another Ghost Story With Tristan Redman

1/21/2024
Subscribe to Mamamia This isn’t just another ghost story. This one has far too many creepy and strange coincidences. Journalist Tristan Redman had unexplained things happen in his childhood bedroom. And he wasn’t the only one. There was another family, who lived in the same house, who had similar stories. The house really did seem… well… haunted. Then things got even weirder. Tristan discovered his wife’s great grandmother was murdered in the house next door. Could that have anything to do with the ghost of Tristan’s childhood? The more Tristan dug the more questions he had, not just about the paranormal, but about the murder itself. In this No Filter, Tristan talks about an extremely complicated murder plot, how he went to see psychic mediums and why he chose to keep investigating this mystery (and create a hit podcast in the process) despite it causing enormous friction within his wife’s family. Tristan's podcast Ghost Story is available on Wondery here, Spotify here, or Apple Podcasts here. THE END BITS: Ghost Story from Wondery and Pineapple Street Studios.
