Producer Keeshia here! Britt & Laura are on their final week of 'break' so we are taking a trip down memory lane and for this one, you've got some homework to do. Your homework is to find out your attachment style!
We are talking attachment theory!
In what fun ways has your upbringing messed you up? Today we get deep and introspective and chat about attachment styles and Attachment Theory. Attachment styles are important. They form how we make bonds with our romantic partners and they are heavily linked to our parents and our upbringing. Some might call it Daddy issues, we call it Attachment Theory!
We unpack our own attachment styles and you can too by taking this test:

It’s the show where Laura and Matty met, so it’s no surprise they are utterly obsessed with the Bachelor and want to follow this year’s leading man in his quest to find everlasting love. If you missed the episodes on TV or just want to re-live the highlights with two Bachie- veterans, we got you covered. This week we were introduced to pilot Jimmy; and we were told about 397 times that he was, in fact, a pilot. From a girl being craned in to the mansion to the first kiss during a photoshoot in front of all of the other contestants, this season has kicked off with a bang; and a girl feeling like she could have farted her way through a tarot card reading!
If you love a bit of bach chat, jump into our facebook discussion group “life uncut discussion group” and then sit back and enjoy the therapy session.
Remember, tell you mum, tell your dad, tell your dog, tell your friends and share the love, because, well, we love love x

The girls are on break, but it is producer Keeshia and we are taking a walk down memory lane with this episode from 2020 - The pros and cons of being single.
For some reason society has made ‘30’ the magic number for women to have gotten their life together, fallen in love, bought property and have kids on the way. And that if you haven’t you’re a failure and you’re being left behind.
Well, we are here to tell you, they are wrong and everyone is on a different path and why being single at any age can be amazing.
It’s you friendly reminder that you don’t need to give up, buy 10 dogs and move to Alaska to live out your days alone.
Join the convo as we talk pros and cons of being single in your 30s.

It's that time of the year again.... BACHI IS BACK BABY and we have Captain Jimmy here reporting for duty!
Matty J and Laura are sitting down with Australia's newest bachelor Jimmy Nicholson. We wanted to find out a little bit more about the man who will be gracing our small screens next week in his quest for love,
We cover everything from Jimmy's upbringing, why he decided to do the show, what his dating life was like pre Bach and whether he is head over heels in love.
Big thanks to today's sponsor Starbucks At Home for keeping us all well caffeinated during lock down and bringing you this special bonus ep!
While Britt and Laura are on break we are revisiting the past today - with episode 86 Fight for your right, talking conflict resolution styles for those of you who have not listened yet.
This is one of our favourite episodes, and with a whole lot of you in lock down we thought we better dust off the old conflict rule book so that we can fight smarter with our relationships and respect in tact.
We’ve spoken about love languages and attachment styles in the past and we think this is a really great way to complete the conversation and tie them all in together.
The 5 conflict styles we discuss are
These are so important to understand about yourself and your partner so you can work towards a happier, healthier relationship.
So, which one are you!?

Oh, and join our Instagram and fb discussion group lifers, it’s where the magic (and lols) happen! @lifeuncutpodcast
In January this year we sat down with India Oxenberg who was the survivor of a US based sex cult named NXIVM. Since speaking with India in January one of her main abusers Allison Mack has been sentenced. Since we know so many of our listeners have been invested in India's story, Laura sits down with India to discuss Allison's sentencing and whether this has brought her closure.
If you are interested in hearing India's full harrowing story please listen to Part 2.
Lifers, This is Part 2 and one from the archives. For anyone who has not listened to India Oxenberg's full interview we cannot recommend this episode enough. This episode was originally published on the 20th of January 2021.
PART 1: Is a a new interview recorded on the 6th of July 2021 discussing Allison Mack's recent conviction and sentencing.
This podcast episode discusses sexual assault, coercive control and living in a cult, This may be triggering to victim survivors. If you need help or someone to talk to, you can call 1800 RESPECT or visit respect.gov.au.
“My name is India Oxenberg. I was in a cult for seven years. I didn't want to be saved,"
This is the harrowing opening line to Stan's four-part docuseries that explores the NXIVM cult. The cult started as a US-based self-improvement group, led by Keith Raniere, but in the end the group was exposed for the dark and disturbing cult that it was.
For 20 years from 1998 and 2018, Raniere recruited thousands of people under the guise of personal development seminars and self improvement sessions even luring in several celebrities and socialites with the most prolific being Smallville star Allison Mack.
Over a long period of time, NXIVM faced a multitude of accusations of systemic sexual abuse of female members by Raniere and members of his inner circle. India was a part of this cult, without knowledge that it was a cult, for 7 years.
The last two of which she was a part of a secret sub group within the cult called DOS, which is a Latin phrase that translates to "Master over Slave Women," It was at this point India was expected to engage in sex acts with Keith Raniere, to act as a slave to Smallville star Allison Mack and to be a master to her own two slaves. It was also here that she was held down naked and branded with Keiths initials on her stomach without anaesthetic and while being filmed.
We are so grateful to have India join us today to personally tell us her story. How she got involved with the group, what life was life inside, the perpetual yet slow grooming, the coercive control, the manipulation and brain washing, the things she was made to do, the collateral she was forced to put down to ensure her silence. She speaks candidly about when things turned sexual, her inhumane branding and eventually how she found her way out and her life after the cult.

-We talk labiaplasty! What the heck is a normal vagina?! And why do we have such a mixed perception of innies and outties?
-I cheated in my last relationship and that’s why it ended. I’m seeing someone new and things are going great. Do I need to tell him what happened? I’m worried that he will find out anyway and it will change his perception of me.

Happy Tuesday Lifers!You all know that here at life uncut, we love love; and we also love Love on the Spectrum!It’s the show where young adults on the autism spectrum navigate the unpredictable and complicated world of dating and relationships. Joining us today on the ep are: the wonderful Kassandra, who is one of the participants on Love on the Spectrum, as well as Jodi Rodgers who is a relationship expert with an extensive history working with people of mixed abilities. In this episode, it’s made clear to us that Love on the Spectrum isn’t a show for autistic people; it’s a show for neurotypical people to better understand how autistic people live and see the world a little differently.Kassandra tells us how and when she was diagnosed, and how different it can be for boys and girls, & breaks down a lot of the misconceptions about autism.We also talk about how it’s really hard to look forward to anything at the moment because of how easily it can all be whisked away, the lockdown and the woman who married a dolphin that *very sadly has passed away.

It's Therapy Thursday and we have some biggies for you today!
To kick it off we are talking about the Victoria Secret rebrand and hey, Victoria Secret now care about women's rights and are advocating for women, by kicking some other women to the curve and replacing them with new women. Bye bye VS angels, hello VS collective... but is this perforative and too little too late?
For today's questions we are unpacking
When is too soon to get back on the dating apps after a breakup, my ex thinks I'm disrespectful
Is single gal time really necessary or should I chase my maybe penguin?
Should I hold out hope for a guy who is still hung up on his ex...

Happy Tuesday Lifers! We’re coming to you cross continentally! Woohoo!
Britt is here on the pod, but not here in Aus! She has touched down in Spain with to be with her lover.
Today, we have a guest that you might recognise, but chances are you haven’t heard her whole story. Camilla Franks is undoubtably the kaftan queen, who started her own business that is now recognisable all over the world, but she is oh so much more than ‘just’ an artist! Camilla Franks’ story has enough components to fill multiple movie plot lines!
We were lucky to sit down with her and discuss:
· The makings of her business and what it takes to ‘make it’ in the fashion world
· Her health journey; from dark depression and bells palsy to being diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer when her daughter was just 8 weeks old
· Her double mastectomy, recent struggles with IVF, and the gene mutation that led to a hysterectomy
· Her recent experience on Celebrity Apprentice
· The controversy of Australian Fashion week closing show
· Her love story that is extraordinary and unusual; just like CAMILLA!
We kick things off with Britt telling us the truth behind some lovely daily mail articles written about her and the paparazzi/police debacle at the airport, plus we find out how her reunion with Jordan went!
You know the drill! Tell your mum, your dad, your dog and your friends and share the love, because well, we love love!
Oh and chuck us a review if you’ve got a sec!

It's Thursday so let’s get into your deep and dirty Q’s!
My friend loves to party, and has progressively taken it further and further. It’s now at the point where she gets so drunk and carries on that I’m starting to resent her. What can I do?
How do I bring up that I want to spice up my relationship by watching porn with my partner?
My friend’s boyfriend broke up with her and she is heart broken. There are rumours that he cheated on her and I’m unsure if I should tell her now or not. Should I?
Kicking off todays episode with a guy who got eaten by a whale and why the hell is Em Rata holding her baby like a sack of potatoes.

What do you call a politician who accidentally zooms parliament Nude? Unlucky.
What do you call a politician who accidentally zooms parliament nude again while urinating? Fired.
haha if you guys think your day was bad, spare a thought for William Amos.
Moving right along! Let's talk failure. Is it that bad?
Perhaps our failures are serendipitous after all?
“Everything happens for a reason.” We’ve all heard that saying and even Aristotle believed that everything happening to you today has a purpose because it turns you into the person you are becoming (gosh talk about starting off deep)
So, whether you think that everything happens for a reason, or perhaps that everything happens for a lesson, we’re talking about how sometimes in life, with the beauty of hindsight, it can be the worst points in our lives that make the best stories and mould us into the people that we are.
Whether it’s your horrific ex-boyfriend who broke down your ego that allowed you to rebuild it from scratch and learn what you liked about yourself, or the soul destroying job that you got fired from that ended up putting you on a different career trajectory, it’s these ‘failures’ that end up being the pivotal moments in our lives that enable us to be better.
In this episode, Aussie comedian Becky Lucas joins us to chat about her life experiences that were, well, slightly less than ideal and resulted in her landing herself in a bin; literally. She speaks about the boy who made her feel like she wasn’t really good enough for him and how that made the comedy stage seem not so scary.
Becky has written a funny as f*ck book titled “Acknowledgements" and it comes out tomorrow!
You can find Becky on insta: @beckylucas__
You can find her new book “Acknowledgements” tomorrow at all good bookstores and online.

LIFERS! We have a guest on for today's intro... officially introducing producer Keeshia!
Tinder released a new feature and I want to know where that was when we were online dating!
Ok let's deep dive. The need for closure. It doesn’t just apply to relationships.
The death of a loved one, the loss of a job, status or a way of life are other examples of painful endings. Letting go of something that was once important to us can be really bloody hard, and many people seek closure in doing so.
But does it actually help?
And can you really expect other people to give you closure? Let’s have a look shall we!
