The half-way Q&A!

We've reached half way!

Maybe Baby - The Trailer

Maybe Baby - the podcast for the parentally undecided, hosted by Virgin Radio's Kate Lawler and her fiancé, Boj.Maybe Baby was inspired by the couple’s real-life ongoing discussions around having children. Kate has always been against whereas Boj saw himself as a potential Dad-to-be. Not wanting to hand back her engagement ring just yet, Kate suggested they explore what it’s really like to be parents, with a view to putting Boj off. Boj naturally, is hoping for the opposite effect.The first episode featuring TWO very special guests is coming very, very soon...but for now, here's the trailer!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
