From falling off treadmills to getting a lifelong injury from an amusement arcade horse, the lives of Caroline Verdon and Annabelle Buckland are filled with a comedy of errors that will make you feel a lot happier about your own misdemeanors.

Rather than never telling a living soul about the time Caroline accidentally created a murder scene at a teddy bear's picnic or the time Annabelle ended up naked on a wakeboard, they decided to tell anyone who'd listen.

The pair met whilst working as presenters and producers at the radio station JACKfm in Oxfordshire and bonded over their cringeworthy lives. Whilst Caroline then got married, had kids, moved to Yorkshire and worked at Radio Aire in Leeds; Annabelle stayed in Oxford and moved in with her Gran. At the age of 30. Whether it's parenting, dating, marriage, work or just general disasters you're after, they have it covered.

Funny, irreverent and not for little ears, At Least You Didn't will make you laugh, go wide eyed with awkwardness and generally just be downright grateful that you aren't Caroline or Annabelle.

Released every Tuesday but if you feel like you need more reminders of how great your life is, then you can find them on Facebook and Instagram sharing photos and videos of their tales of woe. /atleastyoudidnt

Like a hilarious chat with friends

A friend recommended this podcast and I now recommend it to everyone! It’s so funny and feels like a silly chat with friends. I savoured every episode of series 1 and am so glad that series 2 is finally here!

Ha ha ha ha ha!!

The string quartet poo incident brilliantly sums up the first few years of trying to parent unnoticed in public, and failing hilariously. Also mental note to never take medical advice from people who ‘have ideas’ 😂 laugh out loud funny!
