Really great hearing from Bex!

Joshua is great, but I especially love what Bex has to share. I can really relate to her life experiences. She seems like a very grounded person, and I respect her pursuit of growth and healing. While I sometimes disagree with the hosts’ conclusions, I am always challenged to think more deeply and I appreciate these thoughtful conversations.

Non-experts pretending to be experts

If you’re looking for a good relationship tips or guidance, look elsewhere. I don’t know where Rebecca—or Josh for that matter—got the impression they were qualified to this disseminate this type of advice, but they are woefully unqualified and FAR out of their area of expertise. They come off as amateurs trying to sound knowledgeable and professional about topics which they are not. Their most ridiculous podcasts were on the topics of monogamy (or lack there of) and on reunion sex. Josh: stick to minimalism. Rebecca: stick to health and wellness—if you’re truly trained in that area.Don’t waste your time listening.
