Dirty Mother Pukka

Dirty Mother Pukka

By Mother Pukka

JUST RELEASED: tickets to Dirty Mother Pukka LIVE! on Tue 23 Oct at the AllBright club W1. SEE LINK bit.ly/2yJNUCy.


A panel of mothers, a panel of papas and one simple mission: to Parent the Sh!t out of Life. This is the honest, funny and occasionally grotty podcast for people who happen to be parents.


Mother Pukka (Anna Whitehouse) is a journalist, editor, vlogger and family-flogger. With partner Papa Pukka (Matt Farquharson), they believe parents can laugh through the madness of keeping small humans alive.


Each episode puts grown-up quandaries to a panel of brutally honest mums, followed by a panel of equally frank dads, to reveal the dirty truth of each rung of the parental ladder. Whatever the questions, Dirty Mother Pukka is the #nofilter truth about modern parenting.
