The Stef Episode

Season 3, Ep. 10

We've been discussing all things parenting for nearly a year now and we thought it would be nice to get to know your hosts a little better....so this week it's the turn of Stef McSherry.

From her traumatic start in life, to training at a performing arts college and eventually working in radio, Stef tells us how all of these elements came together when she created Kinderama.
