Episode 7 - Time for…Hits & Giggles

July 29, 2021

NB There may be one or two swears in this ep. 

It's the final episode of Season 1 and Esther & Susie are all about the hits and giggles. Hits of both the adrenalin and popular music variety. And all the giggles they can get.

Susie is feeling a bit worse for wear. No, she hasn't been carousing - she's been carouseling. And Esther allows us a peak inside her subconscious where an unexpected visitor pops by once a week for a spot of rollerskating. 

The special guest this week knows all about hits and giggles. Jo Coffey is a 4ft 2 disabled comedian, writer and actress who is a regular in comedy clubs up and down the country. As an actress she has worked on several films directed by Kenneth Branagh, including Artemis Fowl and has recently appeared in a recurring role in EastEnders on BBC One. She's had three successful Edinburgh festival stand up shows and was due to appear at the Underbelly this year, she's also presented on Big Brother's Bit on the Side and Little Brother. Jo's stories are fascinating, hilarious and hugely enjoyable. You're in for a treat.

We hope you enjoy this final ep of Season 1. Thank you so much for listening, sharing and reviewing. We'll see you back here soon for Season 2 of Limited Time Only. Toot toot!

Episode 6 - Time for…Joy feat. Gregory Piper (Line of Duty)

Episode 6 - Time for…Joy feat. Gregory Piper (Line of Duty)

July 22, 2021

Featuring Gregory Piper aka Line of Duty's 'Ryan Pilkington'

In Episode 6, Esther & Susie shine the Limited Time Only spotlight / miniature handheld torch on the subject of joy. With surprising chats and sketches taking in joyful topics such as discos; 1990s fashion mishaps; hobbies; and folk music, this episode is a little dose of ear joy.

The LTO guest this week has brought joy to millions. He is the lovely and talented Gregory Piper - the young actor who first made his mark in Season 1 of the BBC's smash hit series, Line Of Duty aged only 13. Returning to Line Of Duty for season 5 and 6, Gregory lit up our television screens as Ryan Pilkington, the villain we all loved to hate. Although Ryan's future was cut short, Gregory's is looking bright. He chatted to Susie & Esther about when he started acting; how he got the part of Ryan; and he gave plenty of inside info on LOD, the OCG & AC-12. So let's get this episode started. Beeeeeeeeeeep.

Episode 5 - Time for…Parenthood feat. Paul Ready (Motherland)

July 15, 2021

Featuring Paul Ready aka Motherland's 'Kevin'

NB: Some swear words appear in this episode. We blame the parents.

This week, Esther & Susie enjoy moaning about / robustly discussing parenthood. They mull over the physical, emotional and mental punishment inflicted on parents by their tiny bosses / children. And of course, how lovely they are. No topic is off limits as our hosts relive their finest parenting moments. Strap yourselves in - parenthood is always a bumpy ride. 

Special guest this week is actor Paul Ready. A star of theatre, film, radio and television, Paul is best known for playing Rob Macdonald in Jed Mercurio's Bodyguard, Harry Goodsir in The Terror and Kevin in hit BBC comedy, Motherland. He is also a dad. With the help of some cracking audience questions, Susie & Esther chat to Paul about parenting, school plays and of course, Motherland. Paul is a super guest - enjoy!

Sketches, a You Bash, and the sharing of your (the Limited Time Only audience's) funniest parenting stories complete episode 5. Thank you for listening.

Episode 4 - Time for…Tooting Your Own Horn

Episode 4 - Time for…Tooting Your Own Horn

July 8, 2021

Heads up: this episode contains a few s-bombs.

This week Esther & Susie have had enough of being modest, self-deprecating and timid. They are giving their horns a good old toot instead. And they're encouraging you to have a toot too.

With discussions covering middle class urine sample solutions, imposter syndrome and the Oscars, our hosts explore what it is that makes some people so down on bigging themselves up (and wonder whether airline pilots ever have a mid-flight confidence wobble).

Wouldn’t we all love to know what our purpose is? What our strengths are and how to identify them? This episode's guest knows exactly how to help find the answers to those questions.  Hannah Miller is a career coach, inspirational speaker and the founding director of Sidekick

Hannah tells us how once you know what your strengths are you can understand them, lean into them and become the hero of your own story. You can find Hannah @hannahloumiller on all platforms.

As well as all this (toot), there's also a You Bash, a visit to a familiar intimidating leather chair and some glorious horn blowing from the Limited Time Only audience. Thank you for listening.

Caution: This week's episode contains 3 naughty swears

In Episode 3, Esther & Susie discuss stress and how they deal with it. As well as strategies such as eating lots of crisps, they come up with helpful suggestions too. Exploring CBT, yoga, mindfulness, and avoiding social media, our hosts discover that it is possible to get to 9am without wanting to kill someone.

Special guest of the week is Sue Hawkins, mindfulness meditation teacher, and utterly lovely human. Sue explains what mindfulness is, the benefits it offers, and how we can fit it in to our busy lives. During her interview she led Susie & Esther on a mindfulness meditation which is available as a separate mini-episode - Time for...a mindfulness meditation. Once you've heard the effect it had on S&E, you'll be racing to download it. Sue Hawkins is on Instagram @mindful_sue and has a Facebook group Let's Get Mindful

A smattering of comedy sketches and a surprising quiz round off Episode 3. Susie & Esther hope that once you've heard it, you will float through the rest of your day in a happy haze of mindful calm. Alternatively, you'll consume a massive bag of Wotsits. Either way, stress-free living, here we come.

Episode 2 - Time for…Mindless Scrolling

Episode 2 - Time for…Mindless Scrolling

June 24, 2021

This week, Esther & Susie discuss the perils and merits of social media (aka SM; Social; the rabbit hole you get sucked into when you should be doing something useful). They can't quite decide if they like their phones or not although they are great for listening to podcasts so let's not all chuck them out just yet. 

Always up for a challenge, our hosts undertook / suffered a Social Media Abstinence for an entire week. They recorded their progress / pain. Listen out for the matching Big Brother impressions. 

Here to help Susie & Esther cope better with modern technology is their wonderful guest, Hannah Hassack. Hannah is a social media genie who believes that social media is about human connection, not numbers, and that a holistic, personalised approach is how businesses and individuals alike can really get the best out of it. For more information, you can find Hannah on Instagram @HannahRuthSocial

Episode 1 - Time For…Getting On A Bit

Episode 1 - Time For…Getting On A Bit

June 16, 2021

We join Esther and Susie, who are getting on a bit. They explore what most worries / excites them about this unavoidable fact of life. They play the inaugural, best, and possibly final round of the quiz, 'How Old?' where Esther shows off her uncanny ability to recall the birthdays of absolutely everyone. You can also expect a light smattering of comedy sketches.

Their honoured guest is Melanie Hamilton. Aged 57, Melanie resigned from her job as a secretary to follow her lifelong dream of being a professional actress. She'd taken another leap in her 40s - upping sticks with her family and moving to France where they lived happily for several years. Melanie's inspiring story illustrates how 'getting older...can galvanise you to action'.
