Ep. 283

Best-selling author, critically acclaimed Austentatious improviser, co-host of No Such Thing As A Fish, and all round top egg, Andrew Hunter Murray joins Stevie and Tessa for a special live episode. Coming to you fresh from the London Podcast Festival, the gang discuss how to stay private in a world which increasingly commodifies, celebrates and financially rewards sharing everything you've ever done, with everyone you've ever met.

    30:37
    Morning! Bored of toast? Stuck in a cereal rut? Constantly getting overwhelmed and eating one single mini egg (this may or may not be Tessa’s experience)?

  • 294. How to Use an Excel Spreadsheet

    31:51
    Today's episode is brought to you by Stevie, Tessa and the amazing Fi - a 'spacecraft thermal engineer'(!), podcast listener, and Excel champion, who offers her exceptional talents and guidance to two gals terrified of spreadsheets.

    34:00
    Stevie got a massage and loved it. Tessa gets them all the time for her stressed body. Together they offer advice if you’re thinking about going for the first time and, quite frankly, get far too worried about how to tell if your masseuse is going to give you a “happy ending” or not.

  • 291. How to Organise Your Bedside Table

    32:38
    Stevie brings a lot to the (bedside) table in today's existential crisis/light-hearted advice podcast. What is a bedside table? Is yours three apple crates stacked precariously on top of each other, too shallow to hold a book, and too narrow to balance a lamp?
