In Mum’s good books podcast

Nikki Sims-Chilton is your host and talks to Mums about what they are reading and what they recommend you read – knowing that you don’t have a lot of time for reading (or for standing around in a shop selecting a book for that matter).

Grab your clean washing and start folding while you listen to me chat with some amazing Mums. Pending chaotic life as a Mum, expect a new episode each fortnight.

Happy reading (and listening)!
