Alex Casey, Leonie Hayden and Madeleine Chapman tackle the past month in women, news and popular culture.
This month Alex and Leonie are joined by The Spinoff’s Madeleine Chapman, who also produces the podcast at the same time because women are notoriously good at multitasking haw haw haw. Together they chow down on some delicious Munchkins from Dunkin Donuts, and dissect some standout stories from the past month.
What was Alan Duff thinking when he spewed up 600 words about shrieking women? Why is everyone so mad that we pointed out that 7 Days is a sausage fest? Why is Leonie getting skewered for not liking Chris Rock anymore?
Beyond that, Madeleine shares some woeful tales of trying to get house painting work, Leonie glows for GLOW and Grace and Frankie and the team plan an exuberant three-person parade to celebrate all of the under-recognised women’s sports teams in New Zealand.
The Spinoff Weekly compiles the best stories of the week – an essential guide to modern life in New Zealand, emailed out on Monday evenings.
