    Processing The Pandemic

    Today we are talking about our pandemic take-aways and the importance of taking the time to process all that we've experienced. As things return to "normal" we realize many of the memories, good and bad, feel like they're slipping away. So take a beat and talk it all through. We're all changed.


    "Let's get back to normal as soon as possible...as if normal was anything to aspire to." - Russell Brand, on "Armchair Expert"

Love the pod

Love the pod. Love their conversations. They are very cozy and relaxing. Kind of like having relative in the background while I do my things. They do touch current affairs but keep it light which I like so I can maintain my morals and spirits up.

Inspiring, Smart, Joyful. The Real Deal.

For anyone who has a child in their life — parent, grandparent, uncle, aunt, godparent, friend — this show is essential, inspiring, fun listening in these crazy times. John and Julie are the real deal. They radiate love and joy. And they’re funny. Nothing’s better than hearing John awesome laugh. Their show always makes me feel not just better, but more hopeful, and they give me things to think about — especially how all of us can make a concrete difference in the lives of kids, as well as in the lives of our friends and family. The world needs more people like John and Julie.

And if you haven’t read Dr. Duffy’s books, you must!
