Too smutty for my taste.

You don't need to be this smutty to get your point across. If you want respect, talk like someone who deserves respect.

Like having coffee with your best mates...

If your mates are some of the most fabulous women in the entertainment industry.

Examines race, sexuality, gender, culture, and socioeconomics all through the lens of the feminine.

Whatever your background, this is an educational and entertaining listen.

Thank you ladies for your insights. I adored it and would welcome a regular series!

ye gods, I never learn!

I always hope for a fun and fascinating listen, but on the whole I found this as entertaining as sitting on the bus and overhearing the chatter of two old biddys in the row behind!
The only one I enjoyed was the Sandi Toksvig and Sheila Hancock chat!

Overall disappointing

I expected more from this podcast looking at the names. Some of the conversations were so painfully self-obsessed and self-promoting that I had to skip a few episodes.

so boring

I thought these conversations could be interesting, funny and possibly offer some nuggets of inspiration, how wrong I was.....I don't know most of the women for a start, some of the conversations were two people who struggled to have a genuine conversation, who clearly didn't know each other either. Whoever thought up the concept should rethink the objective. Sheila Hancock was the most genuine and interesting woman of the whole lot. The rest were trying way too hard to be funny or interesting.

Cosy listening

Really nice to listen to different women chatting about their lives. Feels like I'm there with them in their living rooms drinking coffee or wine and having a catch up. Would have liked a little introduction to each person as I didn't know them all and it helps build context.

Like, like

Sorry, way too many ‘likes’. It became so irritating that I lost track of the conversation.

I have tried and tried to get into podcasts. This is the first one that I thoroughly enjoyed. Funny, smart women having genuine conversations. It was refreshing and authentic. I've recommended to multiple friends already.

Fab to disaster

First epidsole fantastic made me laugh a lot. Second was a total disappointment could not even finish it, felt that all they were saying was look at me I am famous and have money. The rest were listenable.
