A raw snapshot of marriage from two pros
A must listen for couples looking to connect on a deeper, more vulnerable level. Figs and Teale are extremely relatable, leading by example showing us the most intimate parts of their relationship to model what open communication looks like. I admire the honesty in their struggles and courage in allowing us such a raw snapshot of marriage.
I’m only on episode 2 and I found myself coming to tears during both episodes. This podcast is so relatable. Everything is so well-said and there’s so many moments that spark that epiphany of what is happening in my relationship. I’m so excited to learn more and strive to be kinder and more open to both myself and my partner. Thank you for this podcast!! Please continue making them!
Authentic and Beautiful
I love the set up of this podcast. To be able to review a therapy session and continue to learn was so beautiful to hear. I had so many lightbulbs go off for myself. Everyone wants to be everything for their partner - I think this podcast will be magical for so many.
