Episode 2 – The Planning: Part 1

What is it like to find the perfect partner?

How do we know that we have found THAT perfect partner?

What is it that we are looking for in a partner?

Does love at first sight make any sense?

Nadir Pop and Peter Pop go deep into how they went about finding their respective wives. There are so many important factors when finding the right partners – love, connection both physical and mental, trust, loyalty, friendship, sharing and many more.

But then there is this other aspect of “do you want to have kids with them”? How vital that last point when selecting a partner? Is this how we need to look at a relationship? If and when you do hook up, how important is planning in your collective lives when bringing in a brand new human being into this turmoil we call world.

The Pop duo also speak about the first stages of planning to have a child and discuss as to why timing plays such an important role in it and what are the immediate things that need to be considered when planning to have a child.

Episode 1 – The Delivery

The birth of their children was one of the biggest events of Peter and Nadir’s lives (there are many more to come). Soon after they had the idea for the podcast, hours were spent discussing episode ideas and trading stories. It was clear what the first episode should be about, the defining moment of their live. It was clear what the first episode should be about, the defining moment of their parenting journey.

There were moments on those respective days that they did not see coming despite all the planning. Nadir’s wife threw him out of the room while she was in labour. Peter could not witness his son’s birth. Listen closely to find out how it all unfolded.

On the day, when their respective kids came into this world in their naked glory, it was in fact both the fathers who stood there exposed and naked to the brand new world as first time parents. Because no matter how much you plan there will always be something unplanned that will show up and you just need to ride the wave.

The journey of parenthood began with THE DELIVERY.
