So Mary and Kate are all for staying in bed longer in the mornings, but not sure the Heelers' hijinks quite capture the restful vibe we're after?

Dunny has us wondering which of the Queen's high standards we'd meet, vocabulary-based or otherwise. (Hint, not many!) 

Plus, how many versions of Ten in the Bed/ Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes/ Jingle Bells, Batman Smells are the right number of versions?!  

Squish-squash!

Neuroscience, vaguebooking, trashing the place and hitting the chocolate - a Bad Mood is a journey, and this Gotta Be Done is no exception!

Can our little people actually help their big (bad/naughty/cheeky?!) feelings? And if parents (in Viking helmets) can drive the bad mood, is it up to us to drive the good one too? Don't mention emotional labour!

Plus the world's most annoying song and its breakout moment - you're welcome!

From the yellow brick roads of Oz to the bamboo forests of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and the lusty libraries of Bridgerton, this literary-quest episode takes us everywhere!

Typewriter also reveals that Kate used to own a typewriter and used to love Wizard of Oz, while Mary still owns a typewriter and is still terrified of Return to Oz. 

Then, is Calypso just hiding a typewriter, or revealing the secret to the creative journey? Ira Glass has lots to say about that too. 

Okay, we're out - it's a long way to the shop if you want a SAAAAAUSAAAAGE ROOOOOOOOLLLLL!!!

Since December 2020, Bluey's Big Play has been wowing sold-out theatres - or as Rose Myers puts it, "thousands of screaming fans"! 

The Artistic Director of Windmill Theatre Company jumps in the wagon with Mary, and shares some of the challenges taking our favourite "barrel-shaped" Heelers from screen to stage - and the sheer delight of it all coming together. 

Plus, Grannies, bin chickens, lorikeets, and should we be looking for a long dog on stage??
