Super helpful show
I’ve found Dr. Mario’s insights and interviews to be super helpful in my spiritual life and search for a more integrated and balanced life. Among many other excellent episodes, I think recent episode on overcoming perfectionism should be heard far and wide! I pass these out to friends and family often. Thanks for the wonderful work you do, Dr. Mario!
Best Podcast Ever
Through insight, experience, humor, Faith, and knowledge, Dr. Mario and his guests consistently guide listeners to grow healthier in relationships with spouse, friends, and self. Kudos Dr. Mario!!!
Great food for thought
The dialogue between Dr. Mario and his guest is engaging and thought-provoking. I appreciate his emphasis on relationships, how we know who we are in relationship to one another, but most especially to the OTHER, who is Christ. His conversations with Dr. Jennifer Miller are delightful. The series on relationships is a must-listen. And whatever the discussion, we are reminded that there is always hope. Thank you, Dr. Mario!
