1/5 - How To Be A Dad, part 1

Scratch mittens, strained relationships and GP-sanctioned fingering

This week, comedians Stuart Goldsmith and Tom Price join Olly to discuss their impending fatherhood. 

What impact will it have on their respective relationships? Why does society appear to offer such a lack of support to men embarking upon their first baby? Do men need to know about the mucus plug?

They discuss all this, plus some bad taste jokes.


Stuart Goldsmith, Olly Mann and Tom Price. NO IDEA WHAT'S ABOUT TO HIT 'EM.

If you'd like to hear more from Tom and Stu, that's good news because they both do excellent podcasts: in The Comedian's Comedian, Stu interviews a headline comic about their career and creative process; and, in The Leak, Tom and guests look back over a week of topical comedy. Both shows are well worth checking out. Stuart is also on tour next year: dates here.

Elsewhere in this week's show Ollie Peart suggests some inventive new names for David Cameron's plane, reflects upon the death of FHM, and challenges Olly to spend big bucks (well, fifty quid) on Bux. If you've got a future trend for The Zeitgeist, be sure to tweet it to Ollie.

And, down The Foxhole, our resident love guru Alix Fox showcases the work of bi-curious adventurers Skirt Club, and advises a listener who'd like his wife to stick it to him, ever so gently, but a bit more deeply. You'll never think of your bumhole in the same way again. If you'd like to send in a question for Alix, just fill in the Feedback form - you can remain completely anonymous if you wish.
