Episode 19 - Stop Having Kids! PT1

Part One

A Snarky, Sneering, Satirical Deep-Dive Into American’s Obsession With Reproducing… Or, You Know, Having Kids.

American Parents-To-Be Are A Delusional Group.

Why?

Divorce, Single Parenting, Work, Debt And Daycare... Nobody Is Raising The Kids. Nobody Is Nurturing The Kids.

Having Children Is Simply A Lifestyle Choice For The Ruling Class And Instagram Mummies.
