Great So Far

It’s a young podcast, but if the quality of their content is this good 11 episodes in (at the time of this review), I’m excited for more.

Subject matter is always relevant and interesting with neat themed episodes.

If you’re a child free person that’s had your fair share or annoying questions or criticism from the child loving masses, I’m sure you’ll find it cathartic to listen. Or if you haven’t but you enjoy sharing in the joy of a childcare life, it’s still a good listen.

I don’t have any criticism for the time, as it’s hard to make critical judgements when someone is still starting out, but I think this charming couple is headed in the right direction

Listen Now!

You are missing out if you haven’t listened to this podcast yet! It is a real treat, and it’s great to listen to like-minded individuals when there are so many people in the world constantly questioning when you are having kids, why you don’t have them/want them, and that you’ll change your mind! Why have kids when you can have cats?
