No nonsense, good insights

I love how down to earth Daniel and Wendy are. They mesh well and explore aspects of divorce (e.g when to date) that I haven’t heard before. I also like that you get both the women’s and then man’s perspectives. Their guests seem straightforward, too.

Great content poor audio

You can hear the pen writing on the page in the background very echoey. But great conversation
