When single parent, Minnie, realises she can rent out the spare room in her mum's London council flat, she embarks on a mission to become Gilbert Block's property mogul, all heard from the perspective of her 6 month old son Don.

As Minnie seeks to build a better future for her baby Don and his extraordinarily large nose, we hear her attempts to drum up cash from every corner, all the while passing on her misguided entrepreneurial wisdom to Don and her hapless but loyal friend Worth. The only problem is her mum Bonni's wildly different and plainly spoken political beliefs, and she's living under her roof.

Babytalk is a 4-part sitcom about mothers and daughters, ambition and single parenthood written by Ben Jay and produced by Podcast Pioneers.

Starring:

Katie Pritchard as Minnie
Pippa Hinchley as Bonni
