Can you really maintain massive friend groups forever? What do you do when friendships become toxic? How do you choose your inner circle and embrace the good eggs?

Welcome Spillers! This episode is all about friendship and we go REAL DEEP in this one. We spill the tea on our own experiences of letting friends go, being let go ourselves and making those tough decisions about leaving some friendships in the past (PS: you DEFINITELY DON’T need to stay friends with the people from university!) We also discuss the stigma associated with friendship breakups…!

Becki offers up some wisdom brew about ‘choosing your front row’ when there are a limited number of tickets to the show that is your life (the VIP section gets pretty exclusive!) Want to know the test of a true friendship? Then tune in because we have the answer!

SPOILER: some real-life friendship breakup stories are revealed…! See if you can relate – we have all been there!

(Warning: Laura says “dickhead/dicks” a few times!)

Lessons to be learned from this episode:

1) Get rid of friendships that don’t spark joy

2) Just because they’re family doesn’t mean you have to like them

3) Don’t f**k your housemate

You’re welcome. ENJOY!
