On the Rag: Why is everyone obsessed with Jacinda’s womb?

Listen to Alex Casey, Leonie Hayden and Michele A’Court tackle the past month in women, news and popular culture.

PLEASE NOTE: OUR GRAPHIC DESIGNER IS TOO GOOD FOR US AND THAT IS NOT THE REAL JACINDA ARDERN

This month the gang is back together to tackle the past month-ish in New Zealand media, news and general bullshit, with help from our glorious new sponsors at twenty-seven names. Why is everyone creepily obsessed with Jacinda’s womb? Why does Mark Richardson think the things that he does? Why does one man need a medal for loving his curvy wife?

Beyond that, we share some cool tips of the month including the perfect crispy chicken and how to stop doubting yourself thanks to this thread from Dr. Jess. Leonie gushes over interviewing Clementine Ford, Michele states the case for Midsomer Murders and Alex throws out all her things because Marie Kondo said so. Also, large adult sons.
