The MOLS are off on special projects for two weeks so here's some of the highlights of the last 7 months, as well as some of the bits that never made it to air.

Should we feel bad for critiquing women on the red carpet? The baby name trend that we desperately need to save.  Why does SIRI play so hard to get? And is Mia's tattoo bogan or cool?

We're back soon. In the meantime, send your show suggestions, love and kindness to podcast@mamamia.com.au.

Amy Schumer is everything. The comedian, actor and feminist is our hero. And when Monique Bowley went to interview her, she was excited. Except it ended up being an actual trainwreck.

Plus the wedding trend deemed "worst of all time", why magazines still sex up smart women, the compelling case for Jimmy Barnes avatars and the one thing Mia Freedman does when she walks past abortion protestors.

Forget leaning in. Lets talk about leaning out. Why leaning back is not just OK but neccessary, and why Monique thinks Sheryl Sandberg's message is a bit bullshit.

Plus, the mystery behind Delta's white pantsuit, Mia's day on a plate rivals Therese Kerr, the sneaky tactics to escape street charity fundraisers, and the TV show that is going to kill reality TV.

Facebook is awash in rainbow profile pictures. How do you change back without looking like a jerk? What the heck does 'On Fleek' mean?

How much would you pay for your hair? Is women's sport boring? A confusing new baby name trend.  And the most offensive word to call another woman isn't even a swear word - it's one that is used everyday.

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 ever...you 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.

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.

Are you a shit feminist? Us too. It's ok. The theory that being a bad feminist is a really good thing. Women commenting on each others appearance: innocent fun or a bit wrong? Plus, crying in public, Kanye's sex breath, and the desperate plea for the return of baby Gary.

Show notes

Mia Freedman has one too!

This special breakout podcast is what everyone's talking about, yelling about, protesting about and disagreeing about: Fifty Shades of Grey. 

We take two women that have seen it, each with a different view.

One, a sunshiny soul who hadn't read the books and didn't know what to expect. 

The other, a fiery, give-no-shits powerhouse who devoured all three books, and loved them "with one hand." 

What happens? Shit goes down is what. 

This is the definitive guide to the drama and controversy.  The sex scenes. The global reviews.  The wider social message this movie is provoking.

And, above all, the answer to whether you should bother seeing it.

As Monique says, "It's like Margaret and David. With a lot more fucks."

*warning. Swear jar. Adult themes. 

Show notes

Kate Leaver is a Senior Editor at Mamamia

Shelly Horton is a TV host/ producer and regular on Channel 7.

As this weekend's release of the steamiest movie of the year looms, not everyone is rushing out to buy a ticket.  With calls to boycott the movie for 
"glorifying" violence against women, we ask; why is there such a real-life response to this fictional story?

The "debasement" continues when Monique is cornered into admitting something verrrrry private.

Mega songstress superstar Sia has a social phobia that sees her don wigs for events, cover her face on TV, and wear a paper bag over her head for magazine covershoots. Her approach has raised some interested questions in the age of celebrity: could anxiety ever be used as a marketing tool?

And is it possible to like Jacqui Lambie?

 

Show notes

Rosie Waterland expected the movie to be a cheesy laugh.  Instead, she walked out on the verge of tears.

Lisa Wilkinson ripped it a new one, giving it one star. And that's was just for the choc-top she consoled herself with. 

Here's 10 deeply disturbing things about Fifty Shades of Grey

Monique is still blushing. Please send messages of support or disbelief to the show facebook page or twitter @moniquebowley 

Steve Knopper from Rolling Stone wrote this great longform profile about Sia and her social phobia,  published in the New York Times Magazine.

The full Jacqui Lambie interview from ABC's Hack is here. (The reporter was Jo Lauder, it's really interesting listening, and an excellent podcast).

What's it really like being on a reality TV show? Monique knows. She's been on one. And she hasn't eaten a croissant since. Also, it's Rebel Wilson's birthday but her actual real-life age is a mystery.  Why are we so scared of getting older? Mia had a conversation about the pill with both her mother and her 9 year old daughter...but for good reason. And there's a new food movement that is the polar opposite of Pete Evans.

Show notes

Monique on The Great Australian Bakeoff.  (Also you should try baking that spiced cider bread. It is frickin amazing).

Mia is obsessed with The Alex Baldwin podcast - click through or search "Here's The Thing" in itunes.

Jam mentioned this Rebecca Sparrow article about Ageing being a privilege

If you haven't read To Kill A Mockingbird you should put it on your list. It's a classic.

Monique is pumped about the latest in plain food popups: Cereal Anytime

More history on The Pill here.

Tony Abbott cocked up this knighthood all on his own, so why is his chief of staff Peta Credlin getting all the heat? Sam Armytage poses in a swimsuit and we ask: was it empowering, predictable, or insulting? In defence of oversized, beige coloured undies. And why Australia needs a judge to rule against parents who name their babies after breakfast spreads. 

Show notes:

Why is Peta Credlin's job on the line?

The Sam Armytage cover that has everyone talking 

The woman that has stopped wearing leggings because they 'entice' men.

And poor baby Nutella, who shall no longer be named after a delicious hazelnut spread.

Mia loves the Startup Podcast.

Jamila mentioned the book Freakonomics: the baby name information is here. 

You can email the show at podcast@mamamia.com.au and ask us anything.

Is there someone out there who has named their baby Colin? Shane? Or Ian? Get in touch.

And subscribe won't you. That way the episodes are as fresh as a brand new pack of big beige undies.

Obsessions, confessions, and hard questions

Should the Martin Place hostages get paid? Why don't we care as much about the Bali 9 as we did about Schapelle? It's the return of Mamamia Out Loud for 2015 and with awards season unfolding we're rolled out the red carpet on topics big and small. Jen Aniston holds a masterclass in how to deal with your ex, one woman has gone to drastic lengths to get out of a date, and not everyone is happy about the Taylor Swift campaign for the Hottest 100. Finally; we ask the question that's divided the office: can you wee in front of your friends?
