Looking for My Sister: Pilot
01:41:07

Here’s something a bit different this week. Rosie has been working on a pilot for this new podcast idea…

I am an only child. I do not have a sister. As far as I know. That is enough for the rational, scientific part of me, the part inherited from my pragmatic mathematician father. Yet I have always believed deep within the more spiritual part of me that I do have a sister. So where the hell is she?

This is a story about the conflict between what we know and what we feel... and how we make sense of the space in between.

Please get in touch if you’d like to hear more of this story or could help in creating a longer series. Many thanks to Content is Queen for the micro grant which made this pilot possible, to Dave Pickering for editing and to Tony Pickering for designing the episode artwork.

The Breakup Monologues, meanwhile, will be back soon with more live recordings and episodes. And, in the meantime, The Breakup Monologues book is available here: https://linktr.ee/breakupmonologues

Recorded at London Podcast Festival on 3 September 2021.

Rosie investigates how travel can help us heal after a breakup. She speaks to author and travel writer Anna Hart about a youthful hedonistic post-heartbreak trip to Holland which involved sleeping wrapped in a curtain on a drug dealer’s floor, the joyful power of dancing and how we can still channel the spirit of travel when we have to stay in one location. Rosie also chats to award-winning comedian Carl Donnelly about a post-divorce trip to India that gave him a new perspective on some of the things his former wife had been feeling and how the nomadic lifestyle of constant touring can disrupt, and occasionally facilitate, romantic relationships. Finally she speaks to comedian and podcaster Rachel Creeger about a gap year in Israel that allowed her to find her voice and define her boundaries with an ex who didn’t want to let go.

The Breakup that Broke the ‘Rules’ - with Sarah Southern, Kimberley Wilson and Paula Varjack
01:09:25

Rosie unravels the mystery of why one of her breakups, after only a couple of dates, ripped to the heart of her vulnerabilities... and transported her right back to feeling excluded at school. She speaks to comedian and coach Sarah Southern about how one of the ‘rules’ of breakups - the idea that the length of time it takes to recover is proportional to the length of time you were together - doesn’t always apply. They share stories about fleeting connections that left a big impression on them.

Rosie then chats to psychologist, author and podcaster Kimberley Wilson about how a rejection can represent or trigger something else, something deeper, something from longer ago. They also touch on the nutrition, sleep and exercise routines that might help our mental health after a breakup. Finally she speaks to performer Paula Varjack about bisexuality, biphobia, the imperfect ratio of male and female dating options on Tinder and some funny stories from her event Worst Date Ever.

Finally she speaks to creator of the blog and podcast Non-Monogamy Help, Lola Phoenix, about how polyamory changes the conversation about breakups and how asexuality fits into the contemporary relationship landscape.

To launch this brand new season, Rosie investigates and celebrates singledom. She speaks to Scummy Mummies podcaster Helen Thorn, who found herself suddenly single after twenty-two years of marriage just as the U.K. went into lockdown. Helen entered a sort of ‘separation boot camp’, filled with sad songs and sneaky fags at the back of the garden, in the absence of being able to hug friends. But she revelled in the liberation of reclaiming the house, spending quality time with her children and discovering, via online flirting and dating, that her sex drive had suddenly gone through the roof. Rosie also chats to author and podcaster Francesca Specter, who has coined the word Alonement in order to reclaim solo time as a joyful and precious thing a million miles away from loneliness, and to happily long-term singleton comedian Juliet Meyers.

My Chemical Romance? - with Brian D. Earp
42:12

In the first part of a special mini season, Rosie is joined by Brian D. Earp, author of Love is the Drug, to discuss the ways in which drugs we currently take (such as SSRI antidepressants, contraceptive pills and recreational drugs like alcohol) are influencing our romantic choices.

How could SSRIs and MDMA be used either to help us stay in a long-term relationship or to reduce the traumatic effects of leaving one? How should these biochemical interventions work alongside actions like starting couples counselling or deleting your ex from Facebook? When will they be appropriate? What are the authentic emotions we should listen to? Could something like the memory erasure machine in the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind ever be a reality? Could we redirect our attraction from an unsuitable, unavailable person to someone else? Could a love potion, as depicted by Shakespeare, ever exist? Could this biotechnology be used to redirect a person’s sexual orientation?
