It’s like listening to friends
I just found podcasts this year. Lol.
I found the Ravenscrafts on their Twilight book podcasts. Very enjoyable as I loved going through the series again (my favorite books) and hearing their opinions. Then I listened to their HungerGames podcast which was also enjoyable. It’s like rereading the book, but at a book club in which friends discuss things and themes happening in the book.
They are very real and personable. So I am enjoying their Family from the Heart podcast as well. I listen to them when I’m driving.
My only complaint is that sometimes Cliff (who has a great radio voice btw) will tell on an episode what he told on his previous episode, not just a quick re-cap, but a re-telling. And I would like for him to trust that they have listeners who are actually listening to each episode in order who don’t need such a detailed re-telling.
Cliff and Stephanie together are great! Makes me wish that I had time to learn how to podcast with a friend, too. It seems fun!
I love Cliff!
Cliff and Stephanie are my biggest inspirations in life. I look up to them. Anything I do I think to myself, "would Cliff do this?" Their podcasts are top notch and they make me happy!
Miss their older episodes
The older episodes are much better. Lately Cliff and Stephanie mostly talk about movies they've seen. I miss hearing episodes surrounding their family, parenting, and marriage.
I respect Stephanie as a person and mother but she is so nasty to her husband, holy cow. Much prefer her old podcast, Full Time Mom.
I love Cliff, he has a very soothing voice and is quite witty.
