Our guest for this episode is the amazing Njambi McGrath - comedian, author, childbirth expert, and mum. We cover everything from dirty underpants and bringing up mixed race kids to culturally problematic wallpaper and nits. 

Njambi tells us about her fantastic book, Through the Leopard's Gaze, which is all about her experience of growing up in Kenya and surviving family abuse. We discuss the trials of dealing with teenagers, and Njambi shares her ultimate parenting tip. 

Through the Leopard's Gaze is out now. You can catch Njambi's comedy specials via nextup.com.
