    S5 EP8: Martin Lewis

    Joining us this episode to discuss the highs and lows of parenting (and life) is perhaps our most requested guest of all time! The brilliant financial journalist and presenter - Martin 'Money Saving Expert' Lewis CBE.

    Please rate and review.
    Thanks, Rob + Josh.


    BIG NEWS.... we're writing a book!

    ⭐ All the stories we can’t tell on the podcast – in depth.

    ⭐ What it’s like to raise a stiff neck and a loose neck – straight from the horse’s mouth (our parents)

    ⭐ And.. the BIGGEST REQUEST WE’VE EVER HAD FOR THE PODCAST… Hearing from our wives, Rose & Lou. They’ve got a chapter each and YOU can submit your burning questions to them... PARENTINGHELLBOOK@BONNIERBOOKS.CO.UK

    What's it really like to be a parent? And how come no one ever warned Rob or Josh of the sheer mind-bending, world-altering, sleep-depriving, sick-covering, tear-inducing, snot-wiping, bore-inspiring, 4am-relationship-straining brutality of it all? And if they did, why can't they remember it (or remember anything else, for that matter)?

    And just when they thought it couldn't get any harder, why didn't anyone warn them about the slices of unmatched euphoric joy and pride that occasionally come piercing through, drenching you in unbridled happiness in much the same way a badly burped baby drenches you in milk-sick?

    Join Josh and Rob as they share the challenges and madness of their parenting journeys with lashings of empathy and extra helpings of laughs. Filled with all the things they never tell you at antenatal classes, Parenting Hell is a beguiling mixture of humour, rumination and conversation for prospective parents, new parents, old parents and never-to-be parents alike.

Why?!

Why don’t you guys have a bigger presence in the US??? I blame publicity because I find you guys delightful. And sexy and relatable. 🤫

wickerparkwears ,

I always have time for a laugh

This is been a clear winner during a terrible time. Even though my kids are grown, walking down memory lane and laughing with Rob and Josh is a pleasure

Rach77M ,

Literally life saving….

….throughout lockdown and beyond, you have no idea how instrumental this podcast has been in saving my sanity and my life! We moved from the U.K. across the Atlantic to the US with our 1yr old and 3yr old just before the world shut down and your twice weekly dose of realism, humour and brutal honesty in the face of almost solo parenting (thanks to my medic husband’s job ‘on the front line’🙄) has truly kept me going when I very easily could have sunk! Never stop being so sexy and relatable!!
