Children Ruin Podcasts

On this podcast the myth that parenting is a never-ending joy is laughingly debunked, and for good measure; it is in fact a siege on one's adult identity. By creating a discussion around the parental responsibilities which challenge us the most, our hosts Mike Veerman (Mike On Much Podcast) and Alexandra Cunningham (This Family Tree Podcast) find a highly poignant and instantly relatable way to cheer us all on, in the quest to make little humans, great people. Children Ruin Podcasts is the companion pod to the hit new show Children Ruin Everything, produced by the creators of Letterkenny, New Metric Media. Executive Producer: Kyle Joe Producer: Simon Jain & James Rathbone
