Let's go back in time to 8 days before *the* wedding, and see how the nerves are holding up and Liv also has a big announcement to make!

In Telly Talk we discuss First Dates, with the worst 'datee' Charlotte's seen on the show, we briefly discuss the ongoing football taking over the TV, and the question we all want to know the answer too: has Charlotte started Fleabag yet?! We briefly discuss alcohol, hangovers and the book called 'The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober' and our latest clothing purchases. We'll be taking a short break but will be back very soon!

Rank #3: #24 Being Your Own Best Friend (Live Recording)

Podcast cover

This episode of The Fringe Of It is brought to you by Origins, and was recorded in front of a live audience at The Hoxton, Holborn on Wednesday 8th of August. Liv took Charlotte to see Mamma Mia 2 kicking and screaming, but what did she think of it? Also Autumn Winter dressing is on the horizon and we discuss the finer (and the jumbo) details of our favourite cord suits. The discussion this week is all about being 'Your Own Best Friend'. As we started the podcast on the note of friendship, we thought the season finale should look at ways that you can be your own cheerleader, and there are lots of helpful tips from the audience. We'd like to thank you for all your support over the past four months, we really love every single one of you for making it what it is. As always join in the fun in the Facebook group, and we'll be back in your ears on the 10th of September for season two.

Rank #4: Episode 37: A Belated HNY and a lot of Telly Talk

We’re back! We took a longer break than planned over Christmas and the New Year but are now ready to go. This week we have a unofficial guest, our friend Carrie (Wish Wish Wish), which we think adds rather a nice dimension to our real life girls night when we recorded. We talk about A LOT of TV, last count was 15 different shows and films...it’s safe to say we’ve been been making the most of the hibernation season. We discuss everything from Mary Poppins Returns, Torvil & Dean and then question the latest Ted Bundy Netflix offering and question whether a platform should be given to the same people and crimes. Liv watches Charlotte’s favourite film, and Liv shares her TV guilty pleasure (Flirty Dancing anyone?!)

Podcast cover

This week's episode is a long one! Shopping wise we find out what Liv's been buying at Sezane, what floral purchases Charlotte has been picking up. In TV we discuss the season two of GLOW on Netflix, continue talking about the The World Cup where we applaud Gareth Southgate's Positive Mental Attitude, and we also look at some of the social issues around football. Are elements of it sexist and homophobic? In this week's topic we get stuck into the gigantic topic of money, and why is it such a taboo? Talking about some money mistakes, money mangement, and some money resources we enjoy. However we feel we've barley scratched the surface, so expect a money follow up!
