Good content for the Biblical counselor

I really appreciate a podcast dealing with topics on biblical counseling. As a BC I'm always looking to grow personally and in my skills as a counselor. The only issue I have with the podcast, or maybe it was just the episode I watched on marriage, is that the host talks more than the guest. Not that he doesn't have good things to add, but I would prefer the guest speak on the topic he's been invited to discuss rather than the host.
