Noseynin ,

So funny and relatable

Love this podcast. Always funny

Funny & Insightful Guests

I really look forward to the Funny Mummies podcast. It’s not preachy, it’s just sharing experiences of being a parent. They cover loads of useful topics such as friendships and childcare. Keep going!

Amy-f-b ,

Hilarious, refreshing and grounding

LOVE this podcast! So refreshing to hear the realities of parenting - the good, the bad, the ugly, and to laugh along with it all too.

As well as many light-hearted takes on various parenting moments, there are some really grounding and moving interviews and stories too. It’s been very welcome company during my mat leave.

Unpretentious, witty and perfect for pounding the pavements in the pouring rain with a pram. Be warned, it may make you snort with laughter at a passing stranger.
