Get The Scoop S2 Ep #15: Rose and Rosie and the Art of Oversharing

It’s two for the price of one this week as we sit down with our fave YouTube couple, Rose and Rosie! The pair have grown up online – even sharing snippets of their wedding - after what started as a side hobby turned into a full time job. Their bang-on-brand debut book, Overshare, was released in 2018 and saw the girls talk everything from sexuality to… well… snot. This week James chats to the couple on how they manage mixing business with marriage, what being an LGBTQ role model means to them and the habits they’re trying to kick this year… even the gross ones. We did warn you about the oversharing!

Seeing her platform as a way to start important conversations, Maz talks to us about the way shows are progressing in diversity and representation, how we should stay true to our own goals and how it’s important to not let social media define our healing process – especially when it comes to her insane breakup bounce-back! Sponsored by Klarna.
