I wish this had existed 25 years ago

Brilliant without being judgemental, I needed this decades ago!
Today I went to the podcast and found series 1 doesn’t go beyond 19: no warning; no time to wean myself off this.
Record more podcasts, please. You are very much missed!

I love this and I am not even a parent! Insightful, entertaining and clever!

Thoughtful, funny, uplifting

An uplifting, funny podcast focussing on parenting but reflecting on being parented, love, friendships and humanity. Stuart insightful questioning draws more out of the interviewees, while Sindhu challenges and relates to the guests through personal stories. It’s a really lovely balance of approaches and the chemistry between them- both warm and sometimes spiky - is very enjoyable. Great choice of guests too.
