Publisher's Summary

Things You Can’t Talk About On TV discusses embarrassing medical issues... in detail. Intimate, hilarious, descriptive yet completely factual detail.

GP Dr Ginni Mansberg and over-sharing journalist Shelly Horton want to remove the shame and secrecy around taboo health topics. They discuss the health questions you just don't want clogging up your internet search history, and use the latest medical research and expert knowledge to get you the answers. Even when they're not the answers you want.

From farts to strange smells, curious discharges to weird sex questions, Dr Ginni Mansberg and Shelly Horton discuss medical issues that would make a middle-aged male breakfast TV host blush.

The following podcast is rated F for frank, funky, and factual. It is not for the faint-hearted. We suggest you don’t play this with kids in the car unless you’re ready for some really awkward conversations.

This is an Audible Original Podcast. Free for members. You can download all 8 episodes to your Library now.

Hilarious, addictive, and a MUST listen to

HILARIOUS AND SUPER ADDICTIVE. Definitely not short on the shock factor! This is truly full of all of the stuff we secretly want to know but are too afraid to ask.

Dr Ginni and Shelly (both incredible women individually) together a match made in heaven on this podcast - completely unafraid to go where Television won’t and it’s so worth it!

This is a MUST listen to, and can’t wait to hear more!

Funny and interesting

Omg really enjoyed the Travel episode how can something be so funny and interesting at the same time.

With each episode a different subject this series really is ideal.

These two keep it honest and real
Love it

Love Ginni and Shelly!

This was such a fun podcast. It is indeed super-gross and sometimes a bit much, but I love that it was based on science but also the real-life anecdotes. Shelly was hilarious - I love how willing she is to go there!

Fabulous!

I laughed out loud during every episode. Shelly and Ginny are hilarious. They have such a great rapport. They taught me more about farts and other embarrassing bodily functions than I ever thought I needed to know. Bring on season 2!

Exactly what we SHOULD be talking about!

Informative and entertaining- this podcast is unlike any other I've listened to. The chemistry between Dr Ginni and Shelly is AMAZING- even if the topics aren't for you, every episode will have you laughing out loud (and isn't that the medicine). Just wish there was more content like this- honest but not taking itself too seriously. Love. Love. Love!

Funny, interesting and smart!!!

This is SO SO good! I laughed till I cried and also learnt a hell of a lot too! Shelly and Ginni are a perfect combo and love all the other people and experts that get brought in to speak too, and the real stories and examples, it's so witty!

Funny and smart

Who knew there was so much research on farts?

I had many LOL moments and learned a lot too.

The chemistry between Dr Ginni and Shelly is excellent. It's obvious they are good friends.

It's 2020 so I think it's time to get rid of taboo subjects especially when it comes to health.

Well done. Bring on season two ASAP.

If you have any curious with anything that bizarre to discuss about, listen to this podcast can help you in some ways. 😂

Funny and educational

These ladies leave no stone unturned in their open and frank conversations on everything from breast size to periods and on to things related to the penis.
I would not listen to this in public as some of the content may upset more sensitive individuals.
I found it extremely funny, the two ladies know how to have fun, but I also found it to be educational. As someone in their 50s listening to this I did not expect to learn much - I was wrong. I learned quite a bit. Facts were supported by their general knowledge, especially as one of the hosts is a doctor, and also by research and specialists in various fields.
I really enjoyed this and hope there is a second season. Would heartily recommend.

Superb

Loved this podcast, I’m from a medical background so giggled a lot, of you aren’t it will probably make you giggle and gag in equal measure
