Talking all things love, life, lust, and a bunch of other stuff. Nothing is off limits in this podcast that navigates relationships and dating in the modern day. Brought to you by two bachelor finalists Brittany Hockley and Laura Byrne.
It's ASK UNCUT, where we answer your deep dark and burning questions. But before we start, we want to chat about Leonardo DiCaprio and his light sabre. The dating world is tough, and we are unpacking some wild and terrible first date stories. Then we get stuck into your questions I have a close group of girlfriends but I don't like some of the girls that much, do I have to invite them to my hens? I love my boyfriend, but I'm bi-curious and the sex is boring... I'm falling out with my childhood friends, should I stick it out If you have a question for ASK UNCUT slide on into the DM's @lifeuncutpodcast
We are back lifers!!!! It's so nice to be here! We missed you. Hope you missed us a little bit ;) We are kicking off 2022 with the one and only, the incredible REBEL WILSON! Some of you say that Britt manifested this friendship and look, we aren't saying that you're wrong. 2 years after Britt slid into her DMs, we finally got to sit down and enjoy a nice glass of sparkling or still water with Rebel. We were lucky enough to visit her in her home in Sydney and boy oh boy did she not hold back. This accidentally unfiltered will probably go down in Life Uncut history as one of the funniest and most wild stories of all time. In our chat with Rebel we discuss: -The infectious disease that led her to becoming an actor -her path to Hollywood that was certainly unusual -her long standing friendship with the ‘Bella's' from Pitch Perfect who she still speaks to every day -Her first children's book that she wrote to overcome shyness -Directing her first feature film this year -Her support of the Australian theatre company that helped her launch her career; and putting her money where her mouth is by donating a million dollars to it! -As well as her hall pass and her quite awkward encounter with them that led to rumours of them sleeping together! Rebel is such an intelligent, driven, ambitious and kind woman and we could not have enjoyed her any more! We kick off this ep with some chat about Drake and why you may have been seeing him and hot sauce memes floating around. Another thing that we'd like to thank you for is that we just celebrated 20 million downloads and there aren't words to explain how insanely grateful we are for your ears! If you like the ep, we'd love a little review if you've got a spare sec! Tell your mum, tell your dad, tell you friend, tell your dog and share the love because well, we love love!

Happy Saturday Lifers and welcome to OUR FIRST RADIO SHOW!!! Can you believe they were willing to trust us to not say something outrageous or speak about our intimate bodily functions on the radio waves? No? Us either! But they did!! Here is a smooshed together version of our radio show for you to get your ears around. We kick it off with a revelation of Britt's that would have had her snag a boyfie much sooner, before jumping into what made you think that your friend was cashed up. You guys know that there are some weird, wild and whacky stories published about Britt and Laura, so we turned it into a segment called Headlies where they have to break down the truth, or lack there of, behind the headline. Laura is in the dog house with Matty J and wants to know whether it's reasonable that she's in trouble or not! And we end the show with an ask uncut about whether it's okay to be naked around your dog! We hope you love it! If you've got an ask uncut for our radio show, slide into the DMs with a voice memo @lifeuncutpodcast on instagram! Tell your mum, tell your dad, tell your friend, tell your dog and share the love because well, we love love!! xx
BONUS episode with Bella! Her story of being transgender, finding love and living with a chronic illness. Happy New Year Lifers! We're like the clingy little sibling that can't stay away from you so today we are bringing you a special bonus episode with one of our OG Lifers! It's an interview that has been requested by quite literally hundreds of you! Meet Bella, a founding member of the life uncut discussion group and a ray of sunshine in your facebook feeds! Over the past two years Bella has been so open and vulnerable with her transition journey, and also about finding love and living with chronic kidney disease. In this episode we sit down with Bella to speak about what her experiences were like realising her identity, sharing that knowledge with her friends and family and some of the challenges that the trans community face at the moment. We speak about how she navigated dating, how she chose her name and what is involved in gender reassignment. A big thing from this conversation is that gender reassignment surgery costs are extravagant (around the $30k mark) and not supported through medicare so there is a gofundme organised to help Bella with these costs. You can check it out here: https://bit.ly/3HDNhMK If y'all want some savings use code LIFEUNCUT for a $10 sign up bonus! https://app.shopback.com/aus/partner/LIFEUNCUT If you have missed the pod over the new year break, please let us know by leaving us a review.

Happy end of 2021 Lifers! What a freaking year! Today we are taking a bit of a walk down memory lane and revisiting some of the best and most impactful moments of 2021 on the podcast. We were joined by some absolutely incredible guests. There were a lot of laughs, a few tears and some moments that left us feeling changed. In today's episode, we highlight some moments with: Mark Manson, author of 'the subtle art of not giving a fuck' Our favourite accidentally unfiltereds India Oxenberg, survivor of the NXVIM sex cult Em Carey, the girl who fell from the sky Matty J, Bach uncut host and Laura's to be betrothed Kath Koschel, founder of the kindness factory Sheri Hockley, nutritionist Hugh van Cuylenburg, founder of the resilience project & Shonel Bryant, creator of support your girls. We feel incredibly #blessed to have had these wonderful people share their stories and their time with us and we can't wait to be back with you in 2022! We will still be recording from the floor of Britt's lounge room in our underwear so some things aren't changing! You know the drill, tell your mum, tell your dad, tell your dog and your friend and share the love because WE LOVE LOVE!
Kink is having a bit of a moment in time! What used to be something that was criminalised and frowned upon is now being spoken about and portrayed on our screens! But there's a whole bunch that we didn't know about kink and getting kinky! Joining us to share her wisdom is the incredible Chantelle Otten, psycho-sexologist and kink guru! We talk about how you discover kinks, act them out and what a whole bunch of common ones are! She also speaks about consent with kink and how the community has been so misunderstood for a long time. We then have one of our fabulous listeners Nikki join us who loves water sports (the kink, not water skiing). Nikki is an open mind and an open book and we were so grateful to get her personal experience of kink! To check Chantelle out, go here: https://chantelleotten.com/ Chantelle also has a killer new book out! http://booktopia.kh4ffx.net/NKQVjK If you have loved the podcast all year, we'd really love a review on apple podcasts!

Happy Ask Uncut day Lifers, Today we are starting the episode with a bit of low brow lols. We find out just how much we'd need to pay both Britt and Laura to send us a jar of their farts. Everyone has a price amiright?! Jumping into your questions for today: 1. My partner didn't invite me to his work Christmas party and partners are invited. I'm pregnant and we have a 1 year old, but I'm hurt and wondering if I should be suspicious of this? 2. I'm in a loving relationship but I've never been with anyone else. My boyfriend loves me so much and sees a future with me. I want to experience other people. I don't think he will be okay if I end things though. Help! 3. My partner of 4 years and I had a plan to buy a house together. They've just told me that now they want to buy a house themselves. What am I meant to do? What does this mean about their commitment to me and our relationship? If you've loved the ask uncut advice this year, we'd really appreciate a sneaky review if you haven't already left one. It really helps us! Tell your mum, tell your dad, tell your dog, tell your friend and share the love because we love love!! x x

Park yourself up on the couch. It's time for us to get our therapy Thursday Ask Uncut started. Today we are diving into these questions: -Is there post coital text etiquette? -My ex has text me, apologising for the terrible way that he treated me. I think that this is more for him than it is for me. He is married now so I don't know why he is reaching out. Should I respond? What should I say if I do? -My partner has just moved into my place. I'm having trouble adjusting to the change. My stuff isn't where it used to be. Little things like sharing my space and nitty gritty things are pissing me off. How do I help myself? -I'm 24 and I feel as though I'm having a quarter life crisis. I've bought a house with my partner. I'm set up in my career & everything is great. But I feel like I want to throw it all away and get some more 'life experience.' Should I? If you have a question for us to unpack, please slide on into those DMs at @lifeuncutpodcast Share the episode with someone you love because we love love!
Step right up to your meaty and juicy Tuesday because today we are kicking off the episode with some bach chat that has pretty much every media publication in Australia talking; the relationship breakdown between Brooke Blurton & Abbie Chatfield. We address this conversation from the perspective of two people who have been in the media wheel of Bachelor finales and how elements of privilege are intertwined with the timing of this particular situation. Then we are taking a deep dive on codependence. On the surface we look at codependence as being needy and controlling, but there's so much more to unpack here. These behaviours can be due to how we grew up, other relationship experiences we have had in life, and they can also exist in our workplace. friendship or family relationships too. We speak with founder and co-director of associated counsellors and psychologists Dan Auerbach, who has over 20 years of relationship counselling experience. He gives us his professional insight and experience in codependency. You can check Dan out here: https://www.counsellingsydney.com.au/dan-auerbach/ www.counsellingsydney.com.au Or phone (02) 8205 0566 In the episode, Laura and Britt mention an anonymous group that you can find here: https://www.codependentsanonymous.org.au/ If you liked the episode, share it with someone that you love because we love love! xx
The soft fade vs honest upfront debate is on! Happy Thursday lifers and welcome to therapy. Today's episode kicks off with a rather lengthy dilemma/debate from yours truly. The overarching question being "is it better to do a soft fade of someone that you're not super into, or to be honest upfront and let them know that you're not interested? We discuss! We then jump into your questions: -My friend is really conservative and I think she is going to take the fun out of my other friend's hens party. Do I discuss it with her? -I'm a 'yes' person. I know I'm guilty of overbooking things in my schedule but whenever I try to say no, my friends make me feel as though I've upset or disappointed them. How do I say no and take some time for myself without offending anyone? -I'm newly seeing a guy that I like and can see something progressing with. The problem is that I've hooked up with 2 of his friends. Do I tell him? If I do, WHEN do I tell him? If you have a question you'd like our unqualified but very enthusiastic advice about, you can slide into our DMs at @lifeuncutpodcast. Tell your mum, tell your dad, tell your friend, tell your dog and share the love because we love love!! xx

OH MY GOD… It's our final Bachette episode! Maybe ever, maybe just for the year - we're still undecided. It's the second last ep, which kicks off with Darvid meeting Brooke in a kayak (sadly there was no cameo from surf dog bachelor). After a quick paddle, they jump on quad bikes and try to escape from the Bachelorette compound. Osher springs into action and catches Brooke - forcing her on a date with Jamie-Lee. They go on a bush walk, which Brooke hates because she's wearing brand new white jeans. Jamie-Lee tries to save the date by declaring her love but before Brooke can react - Osher picks her up and forces her to go on one last date with Holly. She makes Brooke endure a marathon session of interpretive dance and just when Brooke thought it couldn't get any worse - Holly declares that she hates kids and WA. It's all too much for Brooke who storms off mid date. Time for the finale, which is between the Persian Landscaping Prince and Best Friend Jamie-Lee. Both get grilled by Brooke's besties - Amy and Abbie Chatfield. They both agree that Darvid is a total dreamboat but Jamie-Lee won't give up just yet. She hires a couple of bicycles and takes Brooke down to the skatepark to smoke cigarettes they stole from Osher's dressing room. Darvid then rocks up and takes Brooke on a tantric-sex-yoga class, which is topped off with a confession of love. Osher decides that Brooke has endured enough so he allows her to say goodbye to Jamie-Lee who actually takes the news like a champion. Before she can wipe away her tears (and her eyelashes) Darvid rocks up to finish off their tantric sex lesson. Brooke is so emotional she literally cries away her eyelashes. It's beautiful, its heart-warming, it's why we watch this show. WE LOVE LOVE !!!
Happy therapy Thursday lifers, Today we are jumping into something a little more grim but we've got some questions to ask the producers and casting staff of MAFS! Then we're jumping into your deep, dark, burning questions: -Do you pick the safe guy who treats you well, or the one you've got the chemistry for that isn't as safe a bet? - I'd been on one date with my now boyfriend when I had a drunken hook up with a friend. Do I need to tell him? I feel guilty. -I'm looking for a new job. What's the etiquette? Do you have to tell your current employer that you're looking for another job? Do you put them as a reference? If you have a dilemma you'd like us to unpack, slide on into our DMs on the gram @lifeuncutpodcast. The Australian podcast Listener's choice award is back and frankly, it's the one that we care about the most because it's a reflection of you guys, our incredible community, not a bunch of judges deciding whether we tell too many poop stories!

Welcome lifers to a laugh and a half episode with Sally Hepworth. We sat down with Sally to not only speak about her brand new book "The younger wife" (which you can get here BTW: https://www.sallyhepworthauthor.com/) but also to talk about navigating a change in your career when you've possibly had a different one before or you're a little bit further along in life. Sally boldly became an author not long after the birth of her first child so we picked her brain about how and why she made such a pivotal change in her life! It wouldn't have been possible for her to be such a successful writer without her husband Christian making some changes in his roles as a parent and within the household. We talk with Sally about what a parent's role can look like in 2021. Sally is witty. She is hilarious & she went to a sex party to research one of her books. This episode is likely to give you a laugh! You can find Sally here: https://www.instagram.com/sallyhepworth/?hl=en We also touch on the Matt Doran, channel 7, "I haven't listened to your album yet Adele" saga and how it's a good reminder that we need to pay more attention to what the boy scouts said and 'always be prepared!" If you like the episode, and the pod, we'd really love a review on apple podcasts! Share it with someone who might be in need of some career change inspo because we love love!
Strap yourselves in because this week is an old-school bachette marathon session - that's right, three episodes in one week ! Holly gets the first single date and she's making bracelets with Brooke - it's sweet and lovely and the bracelets are totally gorg. Would you believe me if I said there was no dancing on this date? Sad but true. For the group date - Osher meets the remaining contestants in the park with a bunch of random kids and some toys from Kmart. I know they've had budget cuts but CMON!!! Now it's the final cocktail party and is competing for the last remaining singe date. Holly gives Brooke a lock of hair, Jamie-Lee writes her another love letter, Darvid gives her an old receipt he found in his wallet and Konrad buys her a new pony. Then, who does she pick…? That's right - the Persian Prince. We then say goodbye to Luca and Will - INTRUDERS NEVER WIN! The next episode kicks off with a group date and we're being treated with some life drawing, however the key is capturing what Brooke represents (we're getting deep). The concept sounds lovely but it's really just 15 min of people drawing in silence - fun times! Konrad absolutely crushes it, and his picture is so beautiful it makes Brooke burst into tears. The only problem is - he tells her that working 9-5 is for losers and he wants to become Australia's biggest influencer. It's time for Darvid's single date with Brooke and they're making wine with their feet because Brooke has a mean foot fetish that needs quenching. Brooke then makes everyone go to the cocktail party barefoot because Darvid's feet weren't enough - Millie was sent home because she had tinea and Kurt left because he had an ingrown nail. HOMETOWNS BABY! Without question, the highlight of this episode was Konrad's dad. In fact, he was the highlight of the entire season. Imagine an older, quirkier, and more sensitive version of Konrad. Absolute heaven! Jamie Lee is up next and she has a shocker and gives Brooke a high-five instead of telling her she's falling in love. Darvid made Brooke meet his mum who said she'd physically hurt anyone who made her son move away from Brisbane. Holly's wasn't much better and her mum told Brooke that her daughter hates kids and WA. Brooke's so confused by all of this that she sends home the one shining light from this season…. WE MISS YOU ALREADY KONRAD !
Hey Lifers, Take your seat on the couch and we'll put the kettle on. Welcome to therapy Thursday. Today we kick off the episode by taking a look at the dress Kendall Jenner wore to her best friend's wedding; whether it's completely inappropriate or not and whether the concept of 'skinny privilege' has a part to play in these conversations. We're jumping into some big questions today like: -Can you still have a relationship with your pet that you shared with a partner after you break up? If you can, how does that look/work? -Do you need/want to know about your partner's past relationships? Does that benefit YOUR relationship? -We had a listener write in asking whether she should 'give up' on the possibility of meeting someone and have a baby by herself. They asked if that would be goodbye to any potential of romance in the future. If you have a dilemma you'd like us to unpack, slide on into our DMs on the gram @lifeuncutpodcast.

Welcome to attraction part 2! Today's episode kicks off with Britt's beef with the daily mail, as well as a hot, big announcement about where else you'll find us in 2022! We touch on our reactions to Taylor Swift's newly released old album 'Red' and whether Jake Gyllenhaal has been treated a little bit harshly or not. Then we are rolling into part 2 of attraction! We broke down emotional and physical attraction in episode 170 & today we are taking a deep dive on the types of attraction and how they can be impacted by sexuality. We look at: -Sexual attraction -Romantic attraction -Aesthetic attraction -Emotional attraction. We then had one of our wonderful listeners, Billi, who identifies as non-binary and asexual join the podcast to speak about how being asexual has impacted their life and their relationships. We spoke about the misconceptions around asexuality and how consent around sex can be misunderstood in asexual individuals. Some other things we touched on are: -aromantic -sapiosexuality -demisexuality & -pansexuality.

The recording equipment broke, and we swear this wasn't a clever rouse so that Laura and Matt could have a holiday.... hell,. they have two kids.... they don't holiday, they just parent their children in new locations.

Happy Thursday lovely lifers and welcome to church. Today's ask uncut breaches a few new types of questions starting with: -My friend, who is a make up artist, expected me to pay $70 for her to do my make up. Is that acceptable? -I've offered to pay for a friend to cover her greys and have her hair done but she's just told me it is expected to cost $400. I feel stuck because I wanted to do a nice thing for her, but this is a lot more than I anticipated it would cost. -Are age gaps ever an issue or does it depend on the circumstances? -My partner of nearly a decade, who has cheated on me a few times, has just told me that they do not want kids. I do not know what to do If you could be an absolute legend and take a second to vote in the Australian podcast award's listeners choice, rumour has it that Britt will get you a puppy! https://australianpodcastawards.com/vote Share the episode with someone you like, or if they're expecting too much out of you and you want to give them a hint! We love love! xx
Lifers this has been a bloody long time coming, and we don't just mean this episode, we also mean the fact that for the first time in the best part of a decade Brittany got a boyfriend. Yep, for once she didn't run. Almost a year into the relationship now (because she had to be sure you know - can't rush into these things) and it is finally time to introduce you properly to the man (aka penguin) that tamed the commitment-phobe wild beast was Britt. Jordan is an Australia professional tennis player with a career high of 43 in the world. These two young lovers have had a wild first year together and you guys have been asking for this episode for a long time! So we put it in your hands and asked what you wanted to know about him, their relationship, their age gap and his tennis career. There is also a spicy "would you rather" that made Jordan blush. ☺️ Note from Britt: Lifers! Enjoy getting to know Jordan and I hope to give you just a little insight into our life and why I love him so damn much. He's the best

It's Therapy Thursday legends. So Laura is on holidays and her podcasting equipment died in the ass, so the into to this chat might sound a little different to what you're used to. First up we are talking about what everyone in Australia is talking about, little Cleo Smith was found 'alive and well'. Then we are answering your deep dark and burning questions : HELP! I love my job, and my boss but I don't know how to ask for a pay rise? My friends hate my boyfriend? I'm the breadwinner in our house, my boyfriend wants to pursue entrepreneurial endeavours, except he also sleeps in until midday and expects me to pay more for everything. Am I a bad feminist?

It's another episode of Bachette Uncut brought to you by the gasiest of couples - Matty J and Laura (this joke will make sense when you hear the start of the ep). The show kicks off with Holly dancing her way into a single date with Brooke where they literally…. dance the whole time. NO MORE DANCING HOLLY! They have a beautiful honest conversation about sexuality and identity, which is topped off with a rose and kiss. Just before Holly can break out the Samba one last time - it's time for the group date! As per all group dates of late, it's a weird mix of whatever the prop department has laying around channel 10. This week is a jumping castle compatibility game complete with ropes, love hearts and scissors. It's seriously a miracle that everyone made it out of this date alive. Emily was crowned most compatible, which proves these games are a total waste of time. Not a whole lot happens at the cocktail party except for Darrrrvid getting a kiss that went on for 10 min - yes this actually happened. Ep 4 saw everyone's favourite contestant finally get a single date - that's right it's the hunk a spunk Konrad! They have a pamper date organised, which just involves Konrad taking his clothes off and being rubbed in oil on a massage table (well played Brooke). They kiss and cry (happy tears) and kiss and cry and kiss.. then cry.. followed by some more kissing and crying. To be honest, I've never seen a couple kiss and cry so much on a date but I'm not complaining - it's beautiful. The group date is a go-kart race that involves folding Osher's washing and organising his Christmas decorations. I swear we're not making this up! Carissa wins because she's a pro at untangling fairy lights but all she gets is a friendship peck from Brooke. Awkies! Just when we were starting to learn everyone's name, production decided to throw in intruders - four of them! All the OG's freak out and turn on Osher as they begin looting the mansion - they only stop when police are called to break up rioting (this last part is made up).
Welcome to the day of the week where you feel slightly better about the weird, wacky or shitty things that happen in your life! It's ask uncut where we answer your deep dark and burning questions! Today we are jumping in with a dilemma of a ring! What do you do if you hate your engagement ring?? Flakey friends where you're fed up! & Can you have sex in a friend's place? If you love the ep, we'd really love a review. 5 stars would be fabbbbbulous. Share it with someone you love because we love love! x x
Brittany is back in Sydney and back in Laura's bedroom behind the mic, and hooly dooly it feels good to be in the same room again. First cab off the ranks we are chatting about Alec Baldwin. Alec Baldwin has shot and killed a 42 year old cinematographer named Halyna Hutchins and Britt and Laura have some strong and slightly conflicting feelings about all of this. Next up we are chatting compatibility and how essential is it to a happy relationship? We also had the pleasure of talking to some of our awesome listeners who are navigating unconventional relationships, an interfaith couple named Daisy and Kurt and an interracial couple named Amelia and Brian. If you have loved this ep - join the conversation on our facebook page, Life Uncut Discussion group or the instagram Life Uncut Podcast, and you know the drill - tell your mum tell your Dad, tell your friends and share the love BECAUSE....

WE ARE BACK BABY and it's BACH-ETTE UNCUT TIME! After the mild success that was Bach Uncut last season with our Kinky Captain, a few of you wanted to hear us squabble our way through this season of the Bachelorette. Matty J is back behind the microphone and Laura is back behind a glass of wine! It is a Bachelorette world first...history making stuff! Australia's sweetheart Brooke Blurton our very first bisexual, Indigenous lead takes her third shot at love! Episode one kicks off with a traumatic walk down memory lane where the Honey Badger is thrust back onto our screens and to be honest, Australia wasn't ready for this yet. But Bachi makes up for this with the most heart warming Welcome To Country and who the hell is cutting onions!! Next up it's time to bring in the suitors! Matt has picked Konrad to win and Laura thinks it's going to be Darvid… ONLY TIME WILL TELL! Episode one sees some drama over an IKEA chair, and well we all know what a b*tch flat pack can be in a relationship. Some guy goes home. We can't remember his name. Episode 2: Our Persian Pirate prince Darvid gets the first single date, and he scores himself a big old sloppy kiss and a rose. And in true Bach form the first group date is the illusive group photo shoot and it did not disappoint. The cocktail gets a little spicy and Beautiful Beau goes home. We just hope the producers made him delete his camera roll before he left the mansion.
Happy therapy Thursday Lifers! Have you heard about the new ball bath contraception? No?? Well fear not, you're about to be balls deep in testicle bath knowledge... Today we are jumping into: -I used to be with a narcissist. Now I'm with a great guy and in a healthy relationship; but I'm feeling a bit...bored. Is this normal? I kind of miss the highs of the toxicity -How do I/ do I tell my friend that the outfit she is planning on wearing to my wedding is not okay? -My bridesmaid is dating a guy that my fiance and I don't like. I don't really want him at the wedding but is this going to drive a wedge between the friendship? This episode is brought to you by Dermaveen.

Welcome to your Tuesday Lifers! We're getting a little spicy today! A topic that SO many of us have such an intrigue about, a world that hardly any of us know about; the sex work industry! On today's podcast we are joined by the wonderful Samantha X, Australia's most well known escort. We speak about what the biggest misconceptions of the adult industry are, what kind of things clients request (spoiler alert, it is likely NOT what you expected), the ins and outs of the industry and who the kinds of people that use these services are. Want to know what the average age of woman that her clients request? What do you think the sex is like? Why do you think a woman would get into the industry? Samantha breaks down a lot of our preconceived ideas of the industry and we hope that you enjoy this chat as much as we did!

Happy therapy Thursday Lifers and today Producer Keeshia is jumping in the hot seat. We often have questions about being cheated on, but today we're jumping into the less common dilemma of a cheater. "I've turned into the person I never thought I'd be. I'm getting married in 3 months. I love my partner and I want our life together. I've been sleeping with someone from work for 2 months. How do I end it? We have a crazy sexual connection and the best sex I've ever had in my life." We also jump into how important having the same religious/political beliefs as your partner are, and how to tell a friend that you do not want to travel with them!

Hey Lifers! It's your enthusiastically unqualified but passionate about helping a sister out therapy Thursday where we dive into your deepest questions! First cab off the rank today is about whether you need to experience a couple of people before you settle on 'the one.' What happens if you're really young and you've found the person you want to marry but you're afraid of the judgement? Secondly, well things get a little juicier here and this one isn't for the faint of heart... I want my husband to go down there after we've finished having sex, but he thinks it's a bit gross and weird. Opinions? Next up we're talking how to address that awkward AF sitch when your neighbours have obnoxiously loud sex; like, wake the dog up loud! How do you get them to shush it without making it hella awkward? Lastly we dive into what to do when someone that you really liked and dated for 2 months completely ghosts you, and then resurrects themselves with an apology. Do you entertain it or throw it in the bin? If you love the pod but you haven't taken a cheeky second to give us a review, we'd love it! Let us know your thoughts! Share the love because we love LOVEEEEE!
Hey lifers! Today we are talking about a very important relationship in your life, one that you probably think about at least 3 times per day and maybe without even realising it. It's your relationship with FOOD! Britt's sister Sheri Hockley- nutritionist, PT, radiation scientist and all around great lass, joins us today and opens up the conversation of nutrition and diet culture. Diet culture is so incredibly ingrained in us that many of us may not even be aware of how much it affects our daily life! In this episode we discuss: -Sheri's hearing loss -How our relationship with food can affect our mental well being and why we have such a f*cked up mentality around diet culture -Weight training -How food affects our mood/how periods alter our cravings -Whether food can be medicine -Gut health -Pre and pro biotics & different types of diets. This episode was made possible by The Culture co. Probiotic Kefir, with over 1 billion live cultures per serve. If you are new to the pod, welcome.

Soaking, parking, floating, marinating, dock and park, jump and hump… never heard these terms in relation to sex before? Well fear not, neither had we! Until a teenage Mormon armed with Tik tok made our day and shed some light on this hush hush act. Kinks. My newish boyfriend just told me he has a few different kinks and mentioned things like urinating during sex as one of them. I'm not sure I'm ready. Do I try or dump and run!? My boyfriend of one year wants to move in together, I think he is my penguin but I low key want to live alone forever! Help!? How do I broach this and is this normal!? My ex messaged out of the blue and wants to “catch up” to see how I've been. I'm seeing someone now and very happy but also considering meeting my ex… is this ok? Should I meet him? Do I tell my bf? Do I blow him off? (Not literally, metaphorically of course, get your mind out of the gutter would ya) Please keep your questions rolling into the DM's @lifeuncutpodcast because oh how we love Therapy Thursday!

In today's episode, we jump into something a lot of y'all have been asking about; manifestation! The law of attraction is it the way to get what you want in life or is it a bit too woo woo to work? Well, today we are joined by the lovely, pragmatic, manifestation guru and journalist Jordanna Levin to talk all things manifestation and how it can affect your dating and love life. We speak about how manifestation has been a little misrepresented in the pop culture space and how rom coms from Hollywood have warped our perception of what to expect out of a 'soul mate.' Oh, and we also start off this episode by discussing the random household items you guys have used as lube... ya weirdos ;) You can find everything about Jordanna and her books, podcast and social media here: https://www.jordannalevin.com/ If you know someone who is a bit stuck in a rut, or someone that might need a bit of help not continuously attracting narcissists into their lives, then share this ep with them & share the love because we love lovvvve x x
Happy therapy Thursday Lifers! Today we're jumping into your questions with a toughy! -I don't agree with my parent's morals. They're racist and I don't want my children growing up around those kinds of perspectives. Do I cut them off from seeing my children? -I'm feeling really left out at work. My colleagues are all friendly with each other and do things outside of work...without me. How do I infiltrate 'the click' and become friends with them? -I've made a new friend. We chat ALL the time. I have a boyfriend and I'm feeling a bit bad because I'm not sure if my new friend thinks that we are going somewhere romantically. Am I doing anything wrong? He doesn't know that I have a boyfriend!

September has been given a new name - Soft launch September! We talk all things soft launching a partner, a baby, even soft launching yourself back in to singledom! Is it cute and exciting or just plain annoying!? Also, Britt's coming home! We hope! We've been told our whole, Hollywood movie impacted, lives that when we meet our person, we will know! They will be everything! But what happens when we get slapped in the face with reality and someone ticks every one of our boxes, except that we don't necessarily want to rip their clothes off? We are talking ATTRACTION Does this mean that they're not 'our penguin?' Does it mean that we should continue dating them in the hopes that those feelings develop? Does it make us a bad person if we call it quits in search of the spark? This episode was brought to you by DermaVeen.

Welcome to your therapy Thursday Lifers and we're diving into some biggies today! Producer Keeshia joins Britt today and FINALLY shares her own accidentally unfiltered. The girls talk about friendship-dating before jumping into your deep, burning questions. Today we look at: -My housemate has been sleeping with a married guy for 2 years. She is convinced he will leave his wife for her. I can't handle it any more. -I've been with my partner for 5 years and we aren't really in love any more. I've kind of just ended up here. I'm worried that we will just get married and I'll regret it. -My friend is dating a new guy and he's showing a lot of red flags.

Happy Tuesday Lifers! Or maybe we should be wishing you a content Tuesday? Because in today's episode we are diving into the happiness trap and how our goal should possibly be one more of content-ness than happiness. We sat down and chatted mental health and mindfulness with Hugh Van Cuylenburg from The Resilience Project. Hugh's story is interesting. It's thought provoking, and it's empowering. In times like how we are living right now, we couldn't think of a better time to talk to someone like him. Hopefully after listening to this episode, you'll feel that little bit better and more ready to take on the week. You can find everything about Hugh here: https://theresilienceproject.com.au/about/ If you love the episode, please let us know by leaving us a review. We really appreciate them!

THIS IS IT! Our last Bach Uncut episode, we couldn't wrap the season until we sat down with Brooke to talk about her experience, her heartbreak and how she is doing now that filming has wrapped. Brooke shares how often her and Jimmy were in contact when she left the mansion, why she was convicted it was going to be her and how she is coping with life and heartbreak after the Bachelor. We hope you have loved this episode and all the Bach Uncut eps! Join the conversation @lifeuncutpodcast on insta and share the love!
Its the big kahuna, the big cheese, the chat of the century... the Bach Uncut episode we have all been waiting with baited breath for. On today's episode we are sitting down with Holly and Jimmy and having a good old yarn with Australia's newest bachie royals. Holly shares the truth behind the mean girl drama, where things are at with Brooke and we also get our hands on a very saucy voice memo that Jimmy left for his new love, and well we don't call him the Kinky Captain for nothing. A big thank you to Starbucks At Home for making this episode possible and keeping us all caffeinated during lockdown.
Goodness gracious me it's the final week of Bach Uncut! Jimmy's already clocked off for the season so he's making the last three remaining girls organise their own dates. Holly clearly snagged the entire remaining budget and she picks Jimmy up in a pimping two-story boat. They talk about what life would be like after the show and even though Jimmy admits he'll work so much that he'll only be around 2 weeks of the year, Holly doesn't care because she admits she's fallen in love with him. Whaaaat, love bombs already and it's not even the finale !? Jimmy replies by pushing her in the water because he loves to give her hyperthermia on their dates. Jay is up next and all she can afford is a leaking kayak in the harbour. They paddle around, listen to classical music (Jimmy hates it) and then he confronts her about the 83rd rumour he's heard - Jay used to date the Bachelor New Zealand. It's at this point we knew it was all over for Jay. Brooke is up next and she's stolen a puppy to play with in the park. Just when you thought Brooke was all glitter and fairies, she throws Jimmy in a hot tub and girates him until Osher kicks them out. Time for the finale and we're all heading to Alice Springs to meet Jimmy's family ! His mum, dad and sister are there and even his cousin.. Because we all know how invaluable dating advice is from your cousin (please explain Jimmy). Jimmy's mum is team Holly and his dad is team Brooke and his sister is like.. just f*#king tell us who you're going to pick already (the cousin literally doesn't say a word). Brooke's single date is very bloody adorable and she's literally having the best time of her life as they enjoy a champagne sunrise in a hot air balloon. She's so certain it's going to be her at the end and oh god - our hearts are already breaking! Holly's date is up next and they snag a cheap flight to Uluru but the only catch is that Jimmy's parents paid for it so they're coming along for the date (this actually kinda happened). The finale is as brutal as you can imagine but it's not a total disaster because we're gifted a beautiful love story with Holly and Jimmy, which makes it all worthwhile. WE LOVE LOVE !
Last night we said goodbye to Chess girl, our business class babe and Matty J's pick for the season Jay! Jay debunks all the rumours from the season, how she felt about being thrown under the bus by Steph and the truth behind her past relationship with New Zealand's Bachelor.
Happy Thursday Lifers, It's time to get into your deep, dark and burning questions but FIRST we simply must know how the heck Britt manifested this friendship with Rebel Wilson that we're seeing all over the gram! Our deep dives for today are: -Friendship/sibling work relationships. Do they work with work? How do you get them to work? -I've been in a happy relationship for a long time and we have great sex. The catch is that I've been faking orgasms because getting to the big O has been tough and I have some factors like meds coming into it. Do I tell my partner that I've been faking it for 6 months or will that destroy him? -I'm pregnant and I feel excited, sad and terrified all at the same time. Is this abnormal or is it business as usual to have doubts as high as the ceilings? You know the drill, if you like the pod, follow/subscribe and leave a little review if you've got a spare sec! Share the love because WE LOVE LOVVVVE xx
Welcome to your Tuesday Lifers! Today on the podcast we are diving into the history of racial injustice and inequality that so many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples face every day in Australia. We were lucky enough to be joined by Carly Stanley, the CEO and co founder of Deadly connections and Justice services limited, a proud Wiradjuri woman. Carly featured on the NITV documentary titled "Incarceration Nation." In this chat we speak to Carly about how her husband's life turned around after his experiences from juvenile detention & adult incarceration, to running an organisation that aims at healing First Nations people that have been impacted by the child protection and/or justice systems. We talk about why so many Indigenous children are being locked up and how we need structural change and better solutions for these children. Today's episode is not a light one, and we would like to add a warning that issues of violence, death and racism are addressed in this episode. If you would like to check out the wonderful work that Carly does with Deadly Connections, you can do so here: https://deadlyconnections.org.au/ If you would like to view the documentary, Incarceration Nation can be found here: https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/video/1930938947662/incarceration-nation The issues discussed in today's episode are heartbreaking and raw, but they are conversations that we think every Australian needs to have. Please share this episode with someone that you love.
Thursday night was hometown and we said goodbye to the divine Carlie and her spectacular teeth!
