Being a parent makes you a member of an exclusive club, a membership that entitles you to the best hugs, damp kisses and a love that moves mountains. But of course, we can’t forget the boogers, poop explosions and less sexy parts of being a parent.
That's why Kinderling Kids Radio is launching The Parent Panel as a brand new podcast! The Parent Panel is a hilarious new podcast where two of Australia's favourite parents will break down the week that was: from the news desk to the nursery.
Hosted by Kinderling's own Shevonne Hunt (mum of two, journalist and host of parenting show Kinderling Conversation), and an ever-changing mix of guest panelists from all over the country to make The Parent Panel come to life. It's an all-star lineup of parents, from insta-mums to political figures. All parents, all honest, all with a lot of laughs.
Panelists include media personalities Kerri Sackville, Jacinta Tynan, and John Mangos; actors and children's entertainers like Luke Escombe from The Vegetable Plot, podcast aficionados such as MamaMia's Holly Wainwright, and a taste of parenting expertise with father of six, Dr. Justin Coulson.
The Parent Panel is the podcast for every parent feeling like everyone else has their lives together except them, and host Hunt is excited for the podcast to strengthen the parenting community.
Shevonne says, "This idea is to bring a mum and a dad together every week, to get their thoughts on everything from the furor surrounding Barnaby Joyce's 'love child', and lunchbox Nazis to whether or not co-sleeping with your child will stunt their growth."
"There's nothing like this currently on air. It's the kind of show parents can listen to after a week of kid wrangling, when they can relax and laugh with the panelists, and be part of the 'village'."
The Parent Panel is recorded and broadcast nationally live every Friday during Kinderling Conversation on Kinderling Kids Radio, before being available later that day for download via The Parent Panel Podcast.
