Dr. John Duffy, clinical psychologist, best-selling author and parenting and relationship expert, is joined by his wife, Julie, to talk about how to make life, parenting, marriage, and family better.
The Fall Family Blues
This time of year is always a tough one for families, as back-to-school bumps in the road collide with a myriad of challenging family dynamics. It's even tougher this year as we hardly know what normal is anymore. This week we are back with a little chat about how we might all support each other. The struggle is real.
Banksy, Art, and Emotions
Second week in a row for us! We're here talking about the mind-blowing experience we had at the Banksy exhibit and how it reminded John of his brother Tom's artwork, how great art can inspire and move us to emotions, updates on Julie's studio, and more!
We're back in the studio! This week we're talking about the amazing view we had of the Chicago Air & Water show from our balcony, and some thoughts on death-defying stunts, getting back to school, and staying connected to good friends and important moments in these strange times we live in.
Embrace The Pivot
Somewhere between Delta variants and Julie having to unexpectedly relocate her new studio, we've had a bit of a week. While unforeseen setbacks can be frustrating and even devastating at times, within that is a tremendous opportunity to create an even better circumstance if we are willing to see it that way. We're talking about that, Simone Biles, and more - this week on Better!
A Closet Conversation
Today we are podcasting from our downtown closet talking about everything from the power of dance to why we watch and read what we do. We end with a few back to school tips. Enjoy!
Pride 2021: A Parenting Opportunity

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!
I can’t say enough about how much I love thus podcast and these people. I have laughed, cried and taken so much from Julie and John. They are the real deal!
