In 2015, Rosie Waterland published her first book, a memoir called "The Anti-Cool Girl". The book is about her childhood, her growing up, and her becoming an adult; all with mentally ill, drug and alcohol addicted parents, child protection, foster care, caravans and couches. There were crazy and very difficult times but also some funny times too. Rosie is 30 now, her mum Lisa is now 53. Since the book came out, the one question Rosie is always asked is more than any other is, "Has your Mum read the book?" Lisa hadn't read it for a while, because her drinking was so bad that she physically or emotionally couldn't. But in 2016, Lisa got sober. She has maintained that sobriety for the longest period Rosie has ever seen and.. she has finally read the book. She has many thoughts. The first of which is that most of Rosie's memoir is a lie. Now is their time to talk all about it. In each episode Rosie reads a chapter from the book, and then Rosie and Lisa talk through it - is it all true or false? What really happened? Each chapter becomes a real conversation about the past, present and future for Rosie and Lisa.
Best mates Christian Wilkins and Andy Kelly explore what it means to love fashion while attempting to figure out how culture shapes couture and its place in society.
You can't trust anyone nowadays. The level of sedition, anti-authority behaviour and advertiser-unfriendly thought-crime has reached record levels -- especially among Australia's "elites". Luckily, The Chaser is here to sort the subversives from the patriots. Each week, The Chaser puts a comedian, writer or politician through the ringer, interrogating them on behalf of the Australian government. The stakes are high. If they fail, The Chaser has been granted the power by Peter Dutton to revoke their citizenship immediately and banish them to Nauru, or worse, New Zealand. Along the way, we hear stories from the lives of the those they're interrogating: from childhood through to the present. No stone is left unturned when you've been vetted by The Chaser.
The world is full of important questions, none of which are actually posed in a new podcast from The Chaser. We chat about all the weirdest and most awful tales from history, and then ask whether they’re cat’s pyjamas (good) or cat’s piss (bad)?
