The Day Shanna Realised She Was An Alcoholic
What's the difference between a party girl and an alcoholic? For today's guest, it was about 20 years, a series of traumas, and a large dose of denial. Shanna Whan finally realised she was in serious trouble when she 'came to' in the Emergency Department after being found crumpled and bleeding at the bottom of a flight of stairs.  You see for a long time, like many ''high-functioning'' alcoholics, Shan convinced herself it wasn't a serious problem because she was a successful business woman by day, and didn't drink until ''after five'' ....  Growing up in rural Australia, heavy drinking was a culturally ingrained and glorified rite of passage she embraced wholeheartedly .. to try and fit in. But it wasn’t until her rock bottom in early 2015 that she knew she had to reach out and ask for help and take action, or die young. Fast forward six years, 15,000 volunteer hours, starting over from scratch, endless failures, knockbacks, and opposition - and now Shanna is the founder and CEO of a national charity called Sober In The Country.  This is her story... THE END BITS: Check out Sober In The Country here - https://www.soberinthecountry.org/.

The Men Who Don't Know How To Have Sex
The sexual assault trial against former rugby league star Jarryd Hayne and the rape trial against Jack De Belin are back in the spotlight as their court cases continue. While their guilt is for a judge to decide, there are some undisputed details emerging from these cases that are worth a closer look. Off the back of a powerful article by Jessie, the Outlouders discuss the porn pandemic and where it goes wrong for these men and so many sports stars like them. Plus, we’re talking about The Crown again. But this time, not about royalty. This season of the show features a woman almost as famous as Princess Diana but much less adored - Margaret Thatcher.  And, are women over forty making mistakes with make-up? A Mamamia piece that went viral over the weekend says yes.  THE END BITS Recommendations: Be an influencer in your own home with a ring light Mia is recommending for Christmas Zoom calls.

Big Sister Hotline: Episode 41, Feat. JILL STARK
This week, I’m joined by my good friend JILL STARK to talk about anxiety, lockdown and some of the tools we can use to ground us when we’re feeling fizzy brained. Jill’s first book, “High Sobriety” was about the year she spent sober. She has since become sober again, and we talk about what this means for a person’s mental health and some of the emotional challenges that come with committing to and maintaining sobriety. It gave me a lot to think about in terms of my own relationship to alcohol, and I know it will resonate strongly with listeners! From little sisters, we answer questions about how to get back into dating without losing yourself in a prospective partner; what to do when the person you’ve been developing intimacy with decides to soft ghost you and insist it’s only ‘casual’; and how to react when a close friend becomes ‘the other woman’. You can follow Jill and her posts about mental health, sobriety and anxiety at the following places: Twitter: @jillastark Facebook: @jillstark Instagram: @jillstark__ Tracie Egan Morrisey’s Emotional Conquistador article here: https://jezebel.com/dudes-today-the-emotional-conquistador-is-the-new-sexu-5022624 Buy Jill’s books here: https://www.booktopia.com.au/high-sobriety-jill-stark/book/9781922070227.html?source=pla&gclid=CjwKCAiA5IL-BRAzEiwA0lcWYujpMh5xqbP_lEoZ6ucwX8IVb4_40sP8xEGn5XgGj6FZXIB4GJ1yoBoCSZ8QAvD_BwE Feedback/Question submission: bigsisterhotline@gmail.com Patreon: www.patreon.com/clementineford Instagram: www.instragram.com/clementine_ford **** (And remember, if you like the show then please consider rating and reviewing it!)

The Jenny Jones talk show shooting
In 1995, daytime talk shows like Jerry Springer and Jenny Jones were at the height of their popularity thanks to using a tactic called ‘ambush television’ - getting guests on stage and shocking or embarrassing them for entertainment. There were episodes like ‘Mom, I’ve been sleeping with your boyfriend’ or ‘Remember our one night stand? WELL THIS IS YOUR BABY!’  One episode of Jenny Jones at the time was called ‘Guess your secret crush!’ and in it, a man called Scott Amedure admitted to his friend Jonathan Schmitz that he had a crush on him. Three days later, Scott was dead. Jonathan had murdered him, and he blamed The Jenny Jones Show. We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there’s this: The doco episode of ‘Trial By Media’ that Rosie talked about, called ‘Talk Show Murder’ (on Netflix): https://www.netflix.com/title/80198329?s=i&trkid=13747225 Episode of ‘Criminal’ podcast about the ‘Gay Panic’ defence: https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/criminal/id809264944?i=1000458839778 Some articles: https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/inside-the-jenny-jones-show-murder-25-years-later.html/ https://people.com/crime/netflix-trial-by-media-jenny-jones-murder/ This episode may have been triggering or upsetting for members of the LGBTQIA community, so please reach out if you need to.

Emsolation with Em Rusciano
Emsolation with Em Rusciano
PodcastOne Australia
Michael talks smack about Carols in the domain.
While we’ve been serving lockdown realness from our lounge rooms, our lady and saviour Dolly Parton has been busy. Not only has she used a stack of her millions to help fund the development of a Covid vaccine, she’s also just casually composed, co-produced and performed in a Christmas movie musical. So naturally Em and Michael will be spending a large portion of this episode deep diving into the seasonal wonder that is the Netflix movie ‘Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square’. To start we’ll need to talk about the outfits, we also need to talk about how Dolly is a VERY sparkly, glamourous, homeless woman, but...she’s Dolly, so as if she isn’t going to be Dolly. Christine Baranski is amazing as Lady Scrooge, but we need to state for the podcast record that Em is quoted as describing it as “really bad, it’s bad, but it’s so bad, it’s good, it really is in that realm”. Em and Michael’s excitement about Mariah Carey’s upcoming Christmas special needs to be reflected too. Speaking of being in Santa season, Michael feels that everyone’s been very eager to put up their Christmas decorations this year, something Em helped confirm when she dropped her “Jason Momoa in a Sparkly Leotard” Christmas extravaganza the previous week. There’s also Rhonda Burchmore being omitted from performing at Carols by Candlelight and how much they loved that she publicly called them out about the snub. Then Michael takes a moment to talk a lot of smack about Carols in the Domain, because he feels that Carols by Candlelight is vastly superior. So secure the drip guard around the base of that lit candle, grab a bag of festively tainted popcorn, and settle in for all that tea to be spilt. Then we talk about the brand new Shawn Mendes documentary that left Em feeling largely underwhelmed, her take away being “he’s clearly a young man who’s just terrified all the time”. Sadly it wasn’t a great rockumentary, especially when you compare it to the benchmark that Madonna set when she released her groundbreaking ‘Truth or Dare’/’In Bed with Madonna’ doco. To see us out Em has an announcement about how Drake should absolutely never play Barack Obama, so secure those headphones of yours over your listen holes or hit the volume on your speakers and get some Emsolation happening.   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
