Margaret Ables and Amy Wilson are both comedians and mothers of 3, and each week they tackle a different parenting topic. Their children are a wide range of ages so they talk about parenting teenagers sometimes--its harder than you'd think to find people willing to tackle that tough topic with humor.
A bit of trivia: They named What Fresh Hell in honor of their mothers because it was Margaret's mother's mantra for raising 4 kids under the age of 6.

What's the time commitment here?
Once a week, usually somewhere shy of an hour.
In spite of the edgy title, the episodes I've listened to by these ladies are anything but edgy. They give solid advice and tell stories from their own families and from their listeners. It's amusing, but so far it isn't hilariously funny. Sometimes they disagree with each other, or approach problems from different perspectives.
I think that with some strong editing they could shave at least 10 minutes from their time. You've got to have a solid reason to keep me listening for a whole hour. That said, I listened to a bunch of parenting podcasts, and this was the only one that made the cut. It's a great program. You can listen to it here, or wherever you listen to your podcasts.
