Great podcast. Excellent and hilarious conversation about real parenting life. Sure to bring a smile to your face.
Yes, please and more
A podcast that is as much about parenting as it is about embracing human nature with all of its complexities, hilarity, fragility, and moments of glory.
Obviously, this is a great podcast for parents. Less obviously, it's a great podcast for non-parents who are friends with tons of parents and also enjoy funny things. Though I don't personally plan to be a parent, I enjoy this incredibly entertaining window into the lives of those who are.
