SCA’s Those Two Girls were told they’d fail without a male voice

Staff Writer

Hit105 duo Lise Carlaw and Sarah Wills, aka Those Two Girls, have opened up about the misogynistic barriers their show faced before landing on the Hit Network.

Speaking to The Courier Mail, Sarah said that they “…heard from several people that two women on radio wouldn’t work; that we would always need male voices to balance out our tone and that people switch off hearing female voices.”

The pair have proved the naysayers wrong, however, thriving in their early morning national slot for the past 18 months, and they are confident that they’ve set a spot at the table for more female duos in the future.

“At the time there was no pathway for women in their 30s … but now we are in our late 30s and it’s really bloody exciting,” the duo said.

“It’s all about women supporting women and giving them a platform.”

Lise and Sarah rose to prominence through a series of high-profile video collaborations with the likes of Mamamia, Price Attack, Suncorp and more.

Those Two Girls are broadcast nationally from 5-6am, weekdays on the Hit Network.
