Famous for its self-effacing tone, Am I Being Unreasonable? is Mumsnet’s most popular talk forum. Regular themes include bridezillas, bad parking, how many toddlers in a cafe is too many toddlers in a cafe, and whether or not to leave your husband because of how he stacks the dishwasher.

Great content but.....

I love this podcast but am I being unreasonable to not see the point of the little preview episodes? Also Aasmah’s fake laugh is really irritating and is starting to put me off listening.
Great content but I’m struggling to listen to Aasmah, sorry Aasmah.

Almost Exact ,

Stop the pointless preview episodes!

The mini preview episodes are pointless! It would be better to have an actual episode rather than spoilers.

Funny!

I’m a long time lurker on AIBU and this was a great interpretation of the bizarre / hilarious forum
