What Our Listeners Are Saying


Very insightful series

I recently started listening to your podcast after realizing that my marriage was not in a great place after only 4 years married. We have been together for six years now and over time I have come to realize that I feel more and more I do not know my spouse at all. Seeking advice on how to improve my relationship I came across your podcast. I have listened to many episodes and in each and every one I get great advice and can relate aspects of the show to my own relationship. I often send my husband the same podcast by sharing it via text message so that he can listen as well. The recent shows on cognitive bias were fabulous and I suffer from mood and confirmation bias. I felt like you were giving examples of me. I listen to your series on my days off and while I am getting dressed in the morning for work. I live apart from my husband due to work and only see him every three months so working on myself while living apart I hope helps when I return home and we live together again in 2020. Thank you again for what you are doing and keep up the great research to help those of us that seek research based advice from experts like yourself. Respectfully, Karie D. Montana, USA

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!

Sound teaching and advice

Thank you so much for these podcasts! I am a runner and listen to them while running alone. I love them and they have been incredibly helpful for my marriage as well as others because I always try to share certain ones with friends that are going thru those particular 'things.' 🙂 Thanks again!

Amazing Marriage Podcast

Change your life and feel hope again

After listening to episode 102 about in laws, I realized my need to include more grace in my relationship. I was recently diagnosed with Bipolar 2 disorder and it's caused quite a bit of turmoil in our marriage of four years and two kids. As the oldest children in each of our family's it's already been difficult, but the recent trials have only added. Every single episode of this podcast is gold. Go the Amazon.com way and "subscribe and save" your marriage too.

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 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!

Absolute Best Marriage Podcast Ever!!

Absolutely my favorite podcast! I feel as if I’ve outgrown other marriage podcasts as in I think my views on marriage and sexuality are often healthier than the hosts. But this one is tried and true! They both have great laughs and I love the way they tease each other while tackling all the real issues in marriages. The messages and research are great! Such healthy views on marriage and sexuality! Thank you Caleb and Verlynda! Cannot thank you enough for putting these healthier perspectives out there. You’ve helped me through some dark times in my marriage and now that I’m in the light, you continue to be a huge blessing and a breath of fresh air to listen to every week!

Listening to current and downloading all the previous podcasts!

Practical advice that is helpful and also entertaining. A range of informative material, varying from the "well duh why didn't I think of that" to the "my word that's deep," which then causes me to rewind and listen to the said advice multiple times to ensure that I understand it! Great chemistry, great advice, great podcast!
