#40 Please Like Me, Season Three (A Dectet of Edible Titles)

Neither you nor your mother(s) should turn a blind eye nor a deaf ear to this episode. Tune in for our discussion of the wonderfully queer show Please Like Me. Izzy, Nicky, Nida and Joel are talking mental illness, queer representation, food choices and the recent third season of the show.

As ever, to discuss something properly, we go FULL SPOILER.

Warning: This episode features discussion of matters such as mental illness and suicide. If you are feeling depression or distress, visit Beyond Blue or phone Lifeline on 131 114.
 
Notice: All of the clips featured are for review and commentary purposes, and remain the property of the ABC. Why not hear all of them as they were meant to be heard, in order and with pictures by buying the DVDs below?
 

Third thing: This episode was originally broadcast before #38, A Very Nicky Christmas, hence the slightly anachronistic last couple of minutes.
