When is the new series?

I love this podcast. It is so funny and a refreshing take on parenting.

VHS 🤬

Love listening to these podcasts funny, interesting and a bit sad.
Like the bit about watching films over and over again, my daughter used to cry rewinding the VHS.

Informatively informal

Love these, varied guests, straight talking, massive range of experiences and dad situations to learn from. Often has me laughing out loud like a weirdo whilst I do the weekly shop.
