A quick search on your go-to podcast app will bring up literally hundreds of different parenting podcasts. There are podcasts offering advice and practical parenting tips on every topic under the sun- from how to care for your new baby, ending tantrums, bedwetting and bickering, to managing matrescence and motherhood.
Those podcasts are plentiful and certainly serve their purpose for mums thirsty for knowledge and solutions… If that’s what you’re looking for.
Often though, mums aren’t looking to learn. In these moments, the number of useful podcasts dramatically dwindles.
Not Another Parenting Podcast is the one gem left standing, for mums who would actually kill to be out chatting to their besties, but can’t.
It’s the podcast you need if…
- your mental load is at max capacity and the idea of learning and retaining new information makes your head hurt;
- you think you might explode if you have to hear about positive parenting or mummy empowerment one more time;
- you’d kill to head out with mum-friends who can relate to the life that sometimes feels like it is falling apart around you, but you can’t even get them on the phone because you’re all juggling too many children and conflicting schedules, which make actually catching up feel like something you may as well postpone until the kids have left home;
- you wish you were anywhere other than hanging and folding another load of washing.
Who’s behind the mics?
Launched late February by NOVA Entertainment, Not Another Parenting Podcast is hosted by two hilarious mums, Sarah McGilvray & Cathrine Mahoney.
It’s not gimmicky nor preachy, but essentially an authentic, light-hearted conversation between two great mates and mums who don’t aim to tackle any topics in particular, or take themselves too seriously- and you get to eave’s drop!
Sarah, is a mum of two preschoolers and a radio co-host, whose voice you may recognise if you’ve ever listened to Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa. She shares the spotlight here with Cathrine, a former publicist, self-confessed over-sharer and single mum of one tween son.
You’ll find no judgement here, just two women who are prepared to say exactly what they think and reveal their innermost secrets to make you laugh and help you survive another tiring day.
How can I listen?
You can find Not Another Parenting Podcast wherever you get your podcasts and will thank yourself for listening, even if you haven’t learnt a thing.
When you’re stressed, wracked with mum-guilt, feel like reminiscing about life when it was easier or just wish someone who “gets” you were free for a chat, Not Another Parenting Podcast is the friend you need.
