Schapelle Corby was among the fans to send congratulations

ARN’s dedicated Hip Hop and R&B station, CADA, have announced that the Flex & Froomes show podcast has officially surpassed 1 million downloads.

Six months since its launch, the Flex & Froomes podcast has seen success, winning bronze at the Australian Podcast Awards for Best New Podcast and placing in Vogue’s “10 Best Podcasts for Women by Women.”

Hosted by Lillian Ahenkan, aka Flex Mami and Lucinda Price, aka Froomes, the show covers topics such as “Why Do Men Lie About Their Shoe Size?” and “Would You Rather Be Happy Or Famous?”.

Of the show’s success, Flex said, “The girls have really done it this time! Turns out it’s possible to reach grandiose career milestones by unpacking gruesome nipple stories, philosophy, psychology, moral dilemmas, the contradictions of modern dating and the intricacies of personal hygiene. Here’s to the next million.”

Co-host Froomes added, “What a bloody pleasure! No offence to us, but I’m always shocked when people come up to me and say they love the show and listen religiously. Good to know they aren’t lying.”

Fan of the show, Schapelle Corby said, “Wishing my favourite bush pigs a happy one million podcast downloads. Huge slay.” Schapelle also referenced Froomes’ recent near-drowning incident in Bali, and added “Don’t worry, that’s not the worst thing that can happen in Bali… or is it?”

Rappers Kodiyakredd and Flyysoulja from the Island Boys also shared their congrats, singing the duo a song, “You just became millionaires from sitting and talking, not bad for the girl version of bro podcasters…”

The special 1 million celebratory episode of Flex & Froomes is available to listen to here.

The Flex & Froomes podcast is available for streaming on iHeart, with exclusive content, relationship advice, moral dilemmas, and more. Flex & Froomes are also live on weekdays 3-4pm on CADA 96.1 in Western Sydney, on iHeart or DAB+ nationally.
