Episode 2! We made it. It's slightly late, it's full of sidetracks, it's everything you love about Anxious & Insecure, plus some iffy instructions for how to use a menstrual cup!
We're back. No, it's not a mirage. Oli and Arthur are back in your ears and less able to follow their own trails of thought than ever!

Have you ever seen what happens when you tell a woman… Continue reading Why women can’t be angry
I've been thinking about this whole "Millennials are so entitled, Millennials are so lazy" thing. You might be surprised (unless you know me even a little bit) to find out that I think it's rubbish. Every generation is entitled. Everybody thinks they should have things as easy as their parents did - easier, even, thanks… Continue reading This generation is so entitled.
