    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.

Good show but PLEASE STOP EATING ON THE RECORD

Love this show, but josh clearly eating is so so so gross- please stop!

savage2020! ,

Not so sleepless in Seattle

Great show, look forward to it every week.. brings me the British comedy humor I miss and reminds me of when my kids were younger and the issues and funny things that happen. Laugh out loud funny, thanks for keeping it sexy and relatable.. just so you know it doesn’t get easier 😜

crazymathgirl ,

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. 🤫
