6 episodes

Winner of Best Comedy at the 2018 Australian Podcast Awards, CHILDPROOF is an unproduced TV sitcom written by Tony Martin and Sarina Rowell. The six episodes were performed live at the 2017 Melbourne Fringe by Tony Martin, Geraldine Quinn, Roz Hammond, Andrew McClelland, Damian Cowell, Cristina Laria, Djovan Caro and Lachy Hulme, with a gaggle of guests, narration by Jay Mueller and audio production by Matt Dower. It concerns those controversial types, the ‘childfree by choice’. They’ve been called ‘selfish’, ‘immature’, ‘unfulfilled’ and even ‘unAustralian’ – by their own families! Out of step with a world that exalts the traditional family unit above all else, Ian and Jennifer are also battling extinction in their workplaces – commercial radio and book publishing. Contains foul language. Not suitable for children.

Takes me back to Old Time Radio

A modern story voice acted beautifully, the humour is timed spot on.
I’ve kept this on my phone because it’s very re listenable

So entertaining

So I’ve listened to it 3 times and will probably listen again. There is so much more you pick up on each listen.
I have one plea/question
Can you please do more?
Thank you for the outtakes at the end as well.
Brilliant
5 stars

Love from the audience

I was there in the live audience and had a blast laughing along to this relatable content! Hope there’s more to follow and hopefully a TV series too? Congrats on a great show.
