3/10 - How To Be A Dad, part 3
Six months after last comparing notes on the joys of fatherhood, Tom Price, Stuart Goldsmith and Olly Mann are all facing up to daddy decisions: how to rescue their respective relationships from a world of 'guilt-tennis', how much TV to allow their sons to watch, and exactly how best to celebrate a one year-old's birthday...
In this funny and frank discussion, they offer up advice on Baby Sign Language, front-facing papooses, and how to make a fiddle-board.
Elsewhere in this season finale, Ollie Peart offers up some trends for 2017, including disappearing ink tattoos, the re-birth of flares, and the foldable phones of the future. Plus, why velvet curtains could soon be adorning your walls, why robotic chef arms will find their way into your kitchen, and how Amazon is wangling its way into your every conversation.
Meanwhile, down The Foxhole, Alix Fox assists a lady who wants to get her rocks off whilst considering the environment. Along the way, she uncovers ethical sex toys, eco-friendly condoms, solar-powered vibrators - and poo-inspired dildos.
