We chat to Craig Rutter about Cocoon Sofabeds and how his rather large family and friends were the inspiration for the ultimate solution. For more info check out...

From time to time we can all be a little socially awkward, especially when we're kids. But what's going to happen to our children's social development after all this time of being separated from their friends? There's also an effect no one is talking about - extra wrapping for presents from Amazon!! We're also awarding a mum 10/10 during our confession and it can't get Al to stop thinking about his folks being intimate. And of course - director of technology - JK, has new tech! Listen and...

So it's no secret that we're all feeling a little flat at the moment. Dealing with the events of the past 12 months have been tough on everybody. And this means Dads too. We're going to get into the loneliness that's effecting Fathers everywhere. We're also finally going to address the keeping your clothes neat and tidy on the bedroom floor. And some dad has inadvertently taught his kid to make bombs. Oops! And Al's got some new tech - not a typo! Listen and subscribe...

What does masculinity mean to you? Is it about big muscles and refusing to cry during the start of Up? Or is it about being in touch with your emotions? We scratch beneath the surface. We're also venting some dishwasher fury! Why are Dads the only ones capable of stacking it right? Perhaps it's all those years playing Tetris. And we've got a dad who's not messing around when it comes to bedtime monsters. Also - JK's got some great tech to perk you up!...

Hats off to those who are going through the highs and lows (mostly lows) of home learning. Who knows, maybe the silver lining is we'll learn stuff that never sunk in while we were at school. We're also talking about being caught speeding, how we deal with sick dogs and for some reason we spend quite a bit of time talking about our showering routines. And oh boy - we have some great tech this week! You can find out more here - http://epson.co.uk/ef-12 Listen and subscribe...
