THE REAL REASONS WHY WE ALL LOVE THE RECEIPTS PODCAST...

1. Because while Milena, Tolly and Phoebe all successfully and not so successfully navigate their way through the current dating climate, Audrey is planning a wedding behind the scenes and here to encourage us all in the bad behaviour she can no longer take part in, popcorn in her left hand, Kermit style tea in the other, ready to drop the realest gems when it comes to advice, because she's elevated to the Godmother CEO position, where you just oversee and instruct from the comfort of your plush office...

2. Because the moment Tolly said she lost her virginity standing up is not appreciated enough. We were all finished...


3. Because we ALL have an inner Milena, and those who think otherwise are just suppressing it, foolishly...

4. Because we've learnt to simultaneously love and hate the random moments of collective singing, like when your sibling bursts into random song at the most inappropriate moment, and you're side eyeing them and fighting the urge to join in until you just give up and perform a joint two hour concert.


5. Because Tolly tweeted her top played songs on Spotify, and the last one was 'Resentment'. People do not appreciate this song enough, and for those that do, we know you've screamed it with your entire chest on a long car journey by yourself, where you may or may not have also cried. If more people had paid attention to this song, y'all would have known Jay Z was cheating years ago...


6. Because Phoebe's commitment to her faith is inspiring and breaks down this very rigid idea that many people have about Christian women. She's killing it, without compromising her morals or integrity. My uber God fearing parents secretly listen to the podcast if it's playing when they are around, even though they pretend they don't, and Phoebe is clearly their fave...

7. Because of the time when Nadia Jae guest co-hosted and all five girls got very candid about sex and orgasms, leaving even the most experienced among us adding multiple points to our mental 'must do' sex lists and determined to have blended squirt orgasms all the time...


8. Because they *really* encourage sex positivity without bashing those women who chose to abstain, and vice versa, *really* being the key word here because so many women claim to not judge women who's sexual behaviour differs from their own, yet so many of us find it hard to live this truth in reality, so the Receipts girls are a rarity when it comes to their approach on this topic. 



9. Because of that episode where the term 'wasteman boxers' was established. If you know, you know...



10. Because of that moving episode when Tolly and Milena revealed painful truths about their fathers, leaving us all like...well, if two women as outgoing and vivacious as them can overcome and move past something like that, then I can deal with my shit too...


11. Because of the poor soul who wrote in because his girlfriend was caught getting her back blown out by the local weed guy. Whatever is going on in our lives, we are ever thankful that it's not that..




12. Because it helps us to turn some of our most embarrassing guy moments into laughables. When the girls are honest about their guy fuck-ups, at some point, we've all nodded along and thought "I thought I was the only one stupid enough to do that"...no, we've pretty much all been there!



13. Because this is how we imagine Audrey leaving the studio after they finish recording each episode, knowing that she has a fiancĂ© to go home to and she'll probably never have to deal with any of the BS to do with men they've discussed that episode ever again...



14. And lastly, because you finish listening to every new episode ready to live your best life...
