    We really appreciate the support we have received since starting this podcast, our Cocotalk LIVE event and the conversations we have been able to share with people on and offline.
    The break for us has offered us new perspective and that issss life is short so might as well talk kaka and have a laugh along the way.

    Navigating Pornography

    Navigating Pornography

    We sat down to share openly about our own experience with porn.
    We dive into both experiences with porn, our views on ethical porn v free porn, navigating porn as parents and having difficult conversations with our kids and our individual relationship with porn now.
    We really spoke as if no one was listening so language is pretty heavy in this one :)
    Cocotalk LIVE is coming up Saturday September 11th! If you haven't already grab your tickets before we sell out.

    Four Bags Full Series: Why we decided to sell up and travel

    In Jan 2016 we made our way on a one way flights to Kuala Lumpur where we would travel as a family for 9 months around south east Asia. This was our first time as a couple we had been on our own (always lived with family) and our older boys who were 4 and 6 at the time.
    In this episode we dive into why we wanted to travel and how the idea came about. We wanted to give you some context before we dive deep into our travel adventure.
    At the end you will here an exciting announcement (for those who are local to Brisbane and Gold Coast) so keep an eye out on @cocotalkpodcast when you can purchase tickets.
    Thank you to everyone who has been listening and supporting us we really appreciate the love!

Definitely worth a listen

I found these guys as I was feeling under-represented in the podcast scene. I’ve been listening for years and hadn’t found my voice amongst a lot of the mainstream podcasts. Cocotalk is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Addressing topics and conversations relevant to the Maori and Pacific Islander journey. Take the time. Open your hearts and minds and give this a go.

Vanessa & Gerhard are here to provide laughter, tears and a new way of looking at life ~ through the lens of radical self acceptance and love. Thankful for the transparency & realness in a relatable dialogue.

Raw, honest & beautiful

This podcast is everything you want it to be. Nothing is sugar coated and Ness and Gerhard address various topics from an honest and raw perspective, often with a vulnerability that then allows their listeners to do the same.
The Moko Kauae series has been especially beautiful to listen to, and I’ve felt really privileged to be given an opportunity to gain such insight into this beautiful art and aspect of the Maori culture.
These guys are also the type you can reach out to on social media to chat to about something that might have come up for you whilst listening, just real people which makes such a difference.
Keep it up guys, always looking forward to new episodes.
