There's a man in the studio. Osher Gunsberg, host of The Bachelor, is our special guest. Season three has wrapped and it takes about 30 seconds until we start probing him for info. Does he have favourites? Does he try and swing the Bachelors decision? Does he feel sorry for the contestants? Has he know...fallen for one of Bachie's girls?

Then we just keep digging. Sex. Mental Illness. Tell us everything.  

It's a side of Osher you've never heard before.

Why did Mamamia 'out' Rebel Wilson? For the same reason that Jennifer Lopez, a 45 year-old mother of two kids, is wearing a naked dress on the red carpet: because Hollywood demands youth, beauty and lies.

Parenting is easy. All pregnant bodies are beautiful. You can eat chocolate cake for breakfast and still lose weight. And this federal budget was definitely not a strategic pre-election sweetener. Welcome to Mamamia Outloud: the podcast that calls out bullshit. Today, why Struggle Street is the most important TV show of the year. Why the budget lockup is like the Hunger Games.  We meet a meditating mother, and ask Masterchef to stop messing with the classics. Finally, we say goodbye to one of the founding members of the podcast team. Sniff.

Show notes

Warning: we use the F word in this episode. 

Rosie writes on Struggle Street

Her piece on Thirty Seconds

The way you sleep says things about your personality, apparently

The time of day you are the horniest. 

Chanting while you exercise. CHANTING. Not Chatting.

"There are times when I put photos on my instagram and they get so few likes that I delete them." #GenYproblems are REAL. Today Mia Freedman (of Generation X) goes the hack on all the Generation Y's she's hired. Plus, why is it called 'Good' Friday? And we pay homage to storage.

Show notes

The Larry Emdur Dilemma

Is this the dumbest thing at Ikea?

Gen Y hit back

Wanna get Netflix? Here's what you should know 

Here's the online catalogue for Country Road, in case you are like Jamila and want to fawn over it, but also like Monique in that you are not posh enough to get the real hardcopy one.

This Glorious Mess will be released on Friday.

What we learned from Masa. The TV show making a mockery of marriage. A Weetbix mystery reveals Jamila's dirty secret, and Monique road tests 'Beezin' - the stupidest way that kids are getting high. Oh, and then there's the bit where Mia raps like Nicki Minaj. Of course.

Show notes

The incredible read about the costs and causes of Domestic Violence from Jess Hill at The Monthly 

Amy Stockwell writes on Masa Vukotic. 

What star sign are you now? 

The Tim Tam Scandal and why we loved social media so hard.

And the show's facebook page is here, drop us a note or say hi or just lurk.

Don't forget to subscribe in itunes so you get the shows fresh. 

If you laughed or learnt something, tell your friends. It's good karma and helps more people find out about us.  And if you hated it, sorry Tony Abbott. But we just really like the idea of equal rights for marriage.
