The Viral 'Two Inch' Grief Theory

It's budget time! Why should you care? Mia tells us why this year the federal budget is a win for women, but there are always losers at budget time, so who are they?

Plus, what is a life coach? And how do you know when you need one? Jessie has done some reading and thinks she's got the chops to help Holly answer a long term dilemma. 

And, there is a video going viral on Instagram this week which we're calling 'the two inch theory of grief'. A recently widowed TV presenter says it's been a huge comfort to her since losing her partner, so what is it about this theory that seems to have resonated with so many people?
