"This Spotify Original show is essential to hear just how exhausting it must be for a woman on the internet, having to deal with unsolicited dick pics and hate mail dressed up as advice. It might sound titillating, but it usually becomes eye-openingly awful."

"Gizzy, Sydney & Co offer fantastically profound insights into sex and dating in the modern world. Sex, Lies & DM Slides is an unadulterated, hilarious, NSFW podcast that will soothe any lockdown anxiety with an earful of top quality feminist goodness. Goes down very well with a glass and a half of wine."

"...slightly gossipy, salacious undertone, but there is something remarkable about it too. It is wonderfully empowering and uplifting. But also, it is unexpectedly challenging. Whatever your age, this podcast will definitely make you wonder why you’ve put up with men’s bullshit for so long and how much of it is learned behaviour. Epiphanies aside, the best takeaway from this podcast was finding out that celebrities get unsolicited dick pics too. And in some cases, from whom."

"Their stories are enough to make you want to set your laptop alight and swear off social media, but partnered with their unique brand of humour, you’re soon seeing the funny side of some pretty horrendous stuff. The conversation flows seamlessly between the hosts and you quickly notice the bond they share. From goofily singing the theme song to excitedly talking over each other, it’s evident they’re having the time of their lives. It illustrates a new age of women who fight back against misogynistic comments and turn their negative experiences into entertainment."

"It’s this kind of honesty – sharing what they really think rather than saying what is considered ‘right’ – that makes the podcast a refreshing listen in 2020. "
