Family Focus ,

Has Potential, but Delivery is boring and annoying

Some of the content is good but the conversations drag on and are just a tremendous waste of time to listen to. It seems as though the hosts feel like they have a time quota to fill and think of anything and everything they can to fill time and then only talk a little about real content. They also come across as a couple ofchatty teenagers chatting in a room trying to create a podcast without any focus. It's painful to sift through and as a fellow ESL teacher, I just don't have the time to listen to all the nonsense to try to get to anything significant. Each episode should be condensed to 5 minutes and should have a helpful focus. Great idea, but terrible delivery.
