Ruth and John Arnold live in Cheshire in the UK with one cat and two children. We met at University, rather longer ago than we like to admit, and married in 1998. When we started trying for a baby some years later we discovered it was not going to be an easy ride, and our first podcast, Just Relax, It’ll Happen, was born. Within a month or so we discovered that our first attempt at IVF had been successful, and in October 2007 our daughter Catherine was born. Another IVF round later our son David arrived in May 2010. Although we kept producing podcasts during this time it became increasingly difficult to balance the subject of infertility with our family news and updates, and with two small children we found it harder to make time to record.
We’re now back with a new podcast. Parental Geekery allows us to talk about the two things we really know about – parenting and geeky stuff. We welcome back all our Just Relax listeners, and hope to welcome more like-minded people to share our little chunk of the Internet.
