Media release: Too Peas In A Podcast at Yarraville Laughs

Mothers Day Eve - Saturday, May 8 at The Yarraville Club

Annabel Crab from the ABC and Chat10Looks3:  

 “I started listening as I was running around, catching trains, doing stuff and before I knew it I had listened to about four episodes… Every single podcast I cried... The way they laugh together is so wonderful, you can’t help bursting into laughter... I love the opportunity to hear their voices... I love hanging out with them...Their capacity to find joy in things… is wonderful.” 

Mia Freedman on Mama Mia Out Loud: 

“The happiest thing I’ve listened to in a long time and it really shouldn’t be...  Their laughter is like balm for my soul. I can’t even explain how much I love listening to it.”


On Mothers Day Eve - Saturday, May 8 - Too Peas In A Podcast will finally make its way to the Yarraville Laughs stage, with Kate and Mandy giving their honest, down-to-earth take on life’s trials and tribulations that have earned tham an international following. 

It’s been a full year since Yarraville Laughs - like every other venue and promoter in the country - had to reluctantly announce the cancellation of its shows which were close to being sold out. 

One of those shows was to be the live debut for two of the funniest mums on the planet, Kate Jones and Mandy Hose, who were to record their breakout podcast, Too Peas In A Podcast.

Fast forward to 2021 and these hilarious women were Victoria’s nominee for Australian Of The Year, have signed a book deal with Penguin Books and tripled their audience throughout the pandemic lockdowns - uplifting their audience with their irreverent banter about raising their respective additional-needs children, both mothers of twins! They also managed to squeeze in a sold out show at Sydney’s Comedy Store.

The audience will be taken on an emotional rollercoaster of tears one minute, laughter the next (and often at the same time), as the two chat about parenting twins with disabilities and additional needs. While indeed, the topics they delve are not necessarily laughing matters, Mandy and Kate’s natural ability to cut through the crap and let the audience see the funny side of their emotional ups and downs is contagious.

As challenging as 2020 was for so many, Too Peas In A Podcast at Yarraville Laughs promises hilarious anecdotes which are totally relatable, such as drinking gin out of teacups in the afternoons, accidental swearing during remote learning classes, playing remote tricks on teachers - all while wearing pyjamas day in, day out.

As Kate says, ‘I think we provided a bit of a lifeline - not only for ourselves, but for our listeners.

During the pandemic, no one was talking about educating kids remotely with additional needs - only us.

And for the grammar geeks amongst us, it’s well worth a listen to hear their explanation of the almost unforgivable spelling in the title, Too Peas in a Podcast.

This is a rare opportunity to be part of the recording of one of this country’s true podcast sensations, so come and see them live, find out what is so a-pea-ling!
