Love this podcast

Thank you Julie and Rich for an entertaining, enlightening and all around fun discussion. Genetics in itself is so interesting, you will never run out of intriguing topics. Wonderful show!

Love, love, love!!!

While I wasn’t adopted, my father grew up without his father and never really knew much about him. Ancestry DNA helped me find him and also my father’s half siblings-who were so open and wonderful. We now see each other several times a year and I’m so lucky to have found them. I’ve done genealogy for over 10 years and love helping other’s connect with lost loved ones or “family. I love listening to the two of you. Your banter makes me smile and sing show tunes. I’m currently binging prior seasons and even caught my husband singing to the jingle! Thanks for the laughs and for always reminding me why I love genealogy and DNA. ❤️I feel like I’m listening to two of my best friends when I listen to you. So much love.

Entertaining Combo of Genetic Genealogy and The Psychological Impact of family secrets

First the hosts have a great conversational style which makes it Very easy to listen to. I’m not adopted or an NPE but my father is (NPE); however, the stories are still relatable and entertaining. I also like the discussions focused on the DNA aspect.
