Binge-worthy and ridiculously thoughtful
It's so refreshing to think about fatherhood specifically when thinking about parenting generally. Stephen is no regular podcaster working on the fly. Each episode feels like a personal essay in its flow. It's written as a story and not a litany of facts, peppered with personal experience to keep it engaging. All the scariest topics- porn, cellphones, post-baby sex, time-spent etc. etc. are covered in ways that freaked me out then somehow reassured me that there were answers and solutions somewhere out there and that my kid, husband and myself are living through fantastic, messy and awkward times.
Totally the best podcast I've listened to in forever, what can I say...

It saved my relationship!!!!!!!
This book came to my email on a day that I was fighting with my boyfriend, like we do all the time!!! I wanted to stop this. I love him and he does love me too, so I prayed for wisdom and this came to me.

Good information nicely delivered.
I really liked this series. For me, in the context of a contented 30+ yr marriage, I learned a thing or two! And HA!, several things we already practice turn out to be good planning on our part. I'd recommend this to anyone in or thinking about a marriage. Or anyone who knows somebody who is married. The format and performance are listenable and the content is sometimes witty, sometimes heartbreaking, and always relevant.
relatable, real. actionable items to put to use. great interviews and great representation of marriages outside of the MF norm.
