162 – Desert Island Discs (Rosemary's Version)

We decided to do our very own Desert Island Discs, detailing the songs that have soundtracked our lives thus far – at least, the ones we can remember… which has meant this is a LOOOOONG episode but I guess if you're a skipper then there'll be plenty of opportunities for you to fast forward!

161 – We Are Who We Are

Somehow a conversation about gratitude journalling has devolved into a reading of Rosemary's teenage diary, a deep dive into why, exactly, Nicky Byrne blocked her on Twitter and a trip down memory lane to the night Beatrice got egged on her way to Whelan's.

156 – Rock, Paper, Screen

We're talking about the new study that shows that kids learn better on paper than they do on screens – is it really that surprising? Rosemary's still carrying around her Filofax like a 21st century Maggie Thatcher, while Beatrice is never giving up her good old paperback habit.Let us know how you feel YOUR kids get on with on-screen learning – and whether or not you feel you get the same result from reading on screen vs reading on paper.

Are any boots truly – truly – made for running, though?!

And we are… confused.Any and all job interview advice welcome by the way – ESPECIALLY if you're someone who works in recruitment or conducts a lot of job interviews… is there such thing as an interview-attire-related red flag?!?

Beatrice has been unemployed since January – and it's not for lack of interviewing! She's applied for 200+ jobs, which means rewriting her cover letter and redoing her CV 200+ times, a trauma no human should have to endure.

Rosemary once had a very strong opinion on this but, as with all other things, she's mellowed with age.

Out of Office: (author) Sophie White's little black book

Sophie White met her husband way too young – or so she says, meaning she missed out on the "fun" (? questionable) of Tinder, Bumble and Hinge. But she likes him a lot, so it's probably okay. (But she'd still like a little hall pass and thinks all bisexuals should get one.)Follow Sophie on Instagram @sophwhitewhoop or check out her full bibliography on her website, here.

66 – Love Me Do (Because I Love You)

Have you ever experienced the pang of unrequited love? It may not surprise you to know that both of us have – at various stages of our lives. We talk about the agony (and ecstacy) of fancying someone who has absolutely zero interest in you; whether to confess your love to someone who has no idea; and Rosemary reminisces (again) about the time she handed a gold coin condom to someone because she thought she was being "flirty".

How good are you at navigating? You know, with a map – or Google Maps, more commonly – from the passenger seat of the car. Can you stay calm? Can you elicit calm in the driver? Do you regularly f*ck up and have to apologise for meandering down country roads? You'll be shocked to know that one of us thinks we're a great navigator! And one of us knows we're not. One of us likes to navigate themselves. (One of us likes to direct everyone else.) One of us, too (bizarrely) seems to be advocating for the return of the paper map (serious Boomer vibes).

24 – Fad Workouts That Really Work! (For 24 Hours At Least)

Life as a journalist – and a woman with an above-average BMI –&nbsp;has led Rosemary to try a LOT of fad diets and fad workouts, from running on a treadmill in a wetsuit with suction pipes attached to it (yes, really) to enjoying a mid-morning snack of a single strawberry and three almonds, she's truly tried it all (so you don't have to). Not to be outdone, Beatrice has also indulged in her fair share of fads – and, if she hasn't tried it herself, she's witness the true h-anger of a colleague attempting Beyoncé's own maple syrup madness. We're dishing the dirt on all of the ways we've mistreated our bodies, and how we bounced back.You can follow Rosemary on Instagram&nbsp;@rosemarymaccabe; Beatrice is&nbsp;@beatricemaccabe&nbsp;and you’ll find us both on the podcast Instagram&nbsp;@notwithoutmysister.&nbsp;Our Facebook page is here!

16 – Magic Fingers and Busted Pipes

This pandemic – and, you know, being stuck in the house – has really got us thinking about all of the things we once called hobbies. Do we still have them? What is it that we enjoy, other than doing jigsaws and drinking wine? Has Rosemary ever found a hobby that she's managed to keep up?

15 – Breakups and Behaving Badly

They say that breaking up is hard to do, but as it happens we think it's harder to have done unto you –&nbsp;and EVEN HARDER to absorb reasonably and with anything approaching dignity. We get into the weeds of our most embarrassing breakups, and the times we begged the men in question to take us back... over and over again.Some day we may do an episode giving advice on how to deal with a terrible breakup, but this episode is NOT that. This is us talking about all of the many ways we did not cope well with being broken up with, the mortification we feel now and what we'd do differently. (Everything.)A few things we mentioned on the podcast include:It's Called a Breakup Because it's Broken: The Smart Girl's Breakup Buddy by&nbsp;Greg Behrendt&nbsp;Lunk (noun) –&nbsp;short for "lunkhead" (Oxford)Orgaz&nbsp;is a municipality located in the province of Toledo, Castile-La Mancha, SpainThe concept of the sunk cost fall

The age-old question (if you're a terrible narcissist): who would play you in a movie of your life?

And what do we say when asked what our worst traits are?!Sisters Beatrice and Rosemary Mac Cabe sit down to talk about their interview experiences. Some that were good, some, er, that resulted in someone walking out of the room. Plus: the job Beatrice lasted less than 24 hours in before walking out due to her principles. Yes, "principles".Plus, there's a dramatic mid-episode ordeal that involves Beatrice leaving the room. You. Just.

Minisode 3 – Under the Influence

For a short, thrilling period, Rosemary made her living as an influencer (noun): one who takes money for the shilling of stuff on social media. (That definition may or may not have been directly taken from the Oxford English Dictionary.) But what did Beatrice and the rest of their family think about Rosemary's career pivot? What's it like to be the nearest and dearest to someone whose life is lived out on Snapchat and Instagram Stories?We talk about Rosemary's short life as an influencer and how it affected those around her.

As self-confessed cry babies, Beatrice and Rosemary know a thing or two about crying: on the street, in the office, on those frustrating occasions when people throw pennies at your face…We sit down this week to chat about crying: the politics of it, the gendered nature of opinions around crying, whether or not you should ever cry at work – and how you should react when someone else does.We'd love to know about you: do you frequently, or have you ever, cried in an inappropriate setting?!

11 – School Hard: It Was the Worst of Times

In this episode of Not Without My Sister, we take a walk down memory lane and discuss our secondary school experiences. Beatrice's seemed largely (if you'll excuse the pun) around her great stature and a traumatic P.E. experience, while Rosemary was more preoccupied with boys (shocker) and why her teachers didn't want to be her best friends.There are a lot of references, weirdly, in this episode – perhaps because it's about education.

Friendship: it may feel like the most natural thing in the world, but it is NEVER the most straightforward!

We've had quite a few experiences of friendship breakdown and, let us tell you, it never gets easier.You can follow Rosemary on Instagram @rosemarymaccabe; Beatrice is @beatricemaccabe and you'll find us both on the podcast Instagram @notwithoutmysis.

9: Dr. Dad – Our Father, The Hero

In this episode of Not Without My Sister, the podcast, Beatrice Mac Cabe and Rosemary Mac Cabe invite you to relax, pull up a chair, as they proudly present: their Dad.Philip Mac Cabe is a man of many talents – when he's interested in something, he will absorb every single possible available diode of information about it, and then he'll go on a further deep dive to get some more. He does have his limits, mind you: making sensible decisions when faced with possible burglary, for example, wouldn't be his forte; nor would giving medical advice or offering any form of diagnosis. Impressively, he has never allowed those limitations to stifle his efforts. In this episode, we chat through his skills and foibles, the moments we've been proud of him and the other moments where we've been, well, less proud.Things we mention:Beatrice begins – insultingly – by referring to a book and TED talk by Tomas Chamorro Premuzic.
