10 Parenting Podcasts You Need In Your Life

As a new parent, navigating the world of parenting can be overwhelming to say the least. Luckily, there are a plethora of information on the topic in virtually every medium that exists. Personally, I reached for podcasts as my go-to knowledge source which felt more light hearted, based on experience rather than ‘methods’ and most importantly – easy to take in, even when exhausted! There are so many parenting podcasts out there that offer guidance, support, and relatable stories that can help make you feel less alone in what can be a bonkers phase of life. If you, like me, enjoy listening to the tales of how others are coping (or not) then here are 10 Parenting Podcasts You Need In Your Life.

The podcast is all about the funny side of parenting with a focus on the more challenging aspects of raising children and the day-to-day mayhem that goes alongside it. Rob & Josh both share amusing, often ridiculous stories about their own lives as well as speaking to famous guests on how they are coping. In what can be a very female focussed topic it is refreshing and interesting to hear Rob & Josh talk so openly about parenting and to understand some of the similar and different worries and concerns they face as men.
