Top Notch

Thank you for finding a way to make this podcast happen. I know it is a financial sacrifice. I have greatly benefited from the sound, research-based advice. Unfortunately, I’m part of the fifty-percent of people whose marriages fail. Your podcast has exposed areas in my life that need to be changed and improved. Thank you for holding up a godly standard and living it out in front of us. You have a loyal listener for life.

Love it

I listened to probably 20 episodes in 3 days. I really liked them. It’s probably the best marriage podcast I’ve ever listened to because they act out what they teach while you listen. It makes marriage fun.

Great podcast on marital issues

This was exactly what I was looking for. The topics are spot on. I’m glad to get research based info, and the show is bite sized enough to keep my husband’s attention. I have to agree that the announcer is just awful and detracts from otherwise normal, non irritating voices. It’s like Winona Ryder trying to fake an overly annunciated British accent with a terrible head cold. It’s really intolerable considering you have to listen to her 3 times each episode. The hosts are great though!

A lifeline when I discovered my husbands affair

You have saved my sanity and quite possibly my marriage. I found your site when searching for help for myself when I discovered my husbands affair/porn addiction. I can't tell you how valuable your episodes on these subjects have been. God bless you for the work you are doing.

Great information, well presented

Very insightful episodes! Great information packaged in a logical way with evidence from studies to back up conclusions.

I recently enjoyed binge listening to a lot of the episodes from the archives and particularly enjoyed the series on finances and debt management. Rather than being inflexible and opposed to debt, as is the stance of many personal finance gurus, Caleb made comments highlighting that debt tolerance can often be different from one person to the next. In the context of married couples, navigating these differences is an important process to maintaining strength in a marriage when facing financial strain, which is one of the number one drivers of divorce.

This podcast is a gift to society. Marriages are so important to family life, and families are important in society.

I’ve been pleased to recommend this podcast to many people since I started listening. I always finish an episode with lots to think about. Thank you both for this work you’re doing!

You guys are so easy and fun to listen

I love listening to you! I love that you guys are a couple and yins to your yans. I could do with out the religious but even even talking about faith is helpful. I am currently separated trying to deal with a husband that I suspect is alcoholic, dealing with my own trust issues all while being a mom of 3 little ones. I am a devoted fan, I take so much information from your programs and I look foward to carpooling and any type of stand since I discovered you! Keep up the amazing work! You have helped me so much... I even share your episodes with my life coach, husband and friends.

Great practical marriage advice!

I like all of the easily-digestible tidbits of wisdom in this podcast! It’s a great way to boost any marriage, and it’s free! I appreciated the episode on dealing with a narcissistic spouse, and I think it would be great to follow it up with an episode on spouses with Borderline Personality Disorder. I’ve had a lot of experience in that arena, and it has been quite a challenge! Also, to follow up on your episodes on abuse, perhaps you could have an episode on false accusations of abuse. Being falsely accused of abuse can be as traumatic as being abused, and I think it’s a situation that a lot of men find themselves in.
