Parenting Hell book to be published in October

Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe, hosts of the number one smash hit podcast Parenting Hell, have signed a publishing deal.

Focusing on the madness, absurdity and utter chaos of being a parent, the Parenting Hell book will publish in October 2022 in hardback, ebook, and audiobook, and will feature some special guests.

You can pre-order on Amazon here and Waterstones and WHSmith here.

With a massive 55 million downloads to date, it’s one of the biggest podcasts in the UK with 3.5 million downloads per month.

The book Parenting Hell sees Josh and Rob share the challenges and madness of their parenting journeys with lashings of empathy and extra helpings of laughs. Filled with all the things they never tell you at antenatal classes, it’s a charming mixture of humour, rumination and conversation and is aimed at prospective parents, new parents, old parents, and never-to-be parents alike.

Rob says: ‘For all those people out there with hot tired ears. It’s time to give your eyes a run out. There’s loads of new stories about our kids and failures at life. Plus you will hear from my parents and Lou. Mainly to take the pressure off me with the word count. It’s a family affair.’

Josh says: ‘Now we have been given a book deal it is probably the time for me to admit to myself that complaining for an hour a week to Rob about my life has become the most successful thing I have done in 14 years in comedy. I can only imagine how much people will love it now they can read our moaning in book form rather than having to hear it coming from our annoying accents.’
