7 Top Podcasts about Separation and Co-Parenting

Podcasts are a wonderful resource for gaining knowledge from other like-minded people or experts, on very specific topics. Podcasts have become an ingrained part of our modern lives and we think it is because of their ‘easy to digest’ format which you can listen to while your walking the dog, having a coffee at your local, commuting to and from work, or before bed time!

We know how busy you are so we’ve taken the time for you to find the top rated podcasts dedicated to divorce and co-parenting.  The podcasts are all very informative whilst also being entertaining and we think they are ideal fodder for anyone going through a divorce or undertaking the journey of co-parenting.

1.      Adventures in Co-Parenting


Adventures in Co-Parenting is a refreshingly honest, easy going and engaging exploration of the highs and lows of co-parenting in the modern world.  The spirited hosts are two people who have been successful over the last six years at raising their child together-apart.  In addition to now being good friends, Alaya and Douglas have approached co-parenting with a focus on putting their daughter, Cohen, first, despite their differences. The show combines the hosts’ experiences and guests’ expertise to offer insight and highlight the often unforeseen positive opportunities to families after separation.

2.      Divorce Story


Hosted by journalists Cassandra Thorburn and Annaliese Dent, Divorce Story launched in March 2020 and is a 12-week series on how to navigate separation and divorce.  Cassandra experienced a high profile divorce from Karl Stefanovic in 2016 and has admitted in the podcast that she struggled in the aftermath for years.  Episodes so far include, ‘Let’s talk about money’, ‘Do I need a lawyer?’, ‘Fleeing an abusive relationship’ and ‘If I knew then what I know now’.

3.      The High Conflict Co-Parenting Podcast


Co-Parenting is the relationship that never ends.  If your ex is difficult to deal with, if you are experiencing high-conflict and/or your children are being hurt by the behaviour of your ex-partner, then this show is for you.  You may not be able to change them but you can change everything that your child needs to be healthy and happy.  Listen in as Charlie and Brook discuss the principles, tools and techniques available in order to create peace in high conflict co-parenting relationships.
