We share our coping strategies, and what we do on the days we’re really not coping very well at all, actually. Find out how we’re getting on with homeschooling, hear about the newest member of Helen’s family, and learn what Ellie's been doing beside her parents' bins.The podcast Helen recommends is the excellent Divorce Club. The terms Ellie can't remember that Brené Brown uses are over- and under-functioning, and you can hear her explain them in a much more articulate way on the Unlocking Us podcast. This podcast is brought to you in partnership with @PayPalUK.

In 2017, we put out a podcast with the legendary Dr Ranj. It was funny, fabulous, and filthy - just like him. However, for reasons lost in the mists of time, we were forced to take it down.

He tells us the funniest thing that ever happened to him in A&E, and even gives us some actual medical advice - including what every parent should have in their bathroom cabinet, and the best way to get rid of nits. For more from the amazing Dr Ranj, do check out his new podcast - Steths, Drugs & Rock 'n' Roll.

Full disclosure: this may be the loudest, fastest, funniest, filthiest podcast we've ever done. We were thrilled to meet the amazing Cat and Nat, and none of us could stop talking the whole time. Definitely not one to listen to with the kids around - pour yourself a wine, lock the toilet door, and strap in...This episode starts with a very strong chat about whether we've looked at our own downstairses, and doesn't get any more highbrow from there. We talk about everything from friendship, being in a double act and performing live shows to how often we have sex. How important is it to have a partner who's funny? What do you do if your kids start swearing? And how do you give a hand job that's better than a blow job? We chat about all this and more... #brexspitFor more from these bloody legends, visit catandnat.ca. You can follow them @catandnat, and watch their fantastic videos on YouTube.
