Keeps getting better

Found this podcast a while back. I’ve been working my way through the episodes. The host has informative and entertaining guests. And he obviously is invested in the subject matter as his enthusiasm is palpable. His interviewing skills have improved through the years and the more recent episodes have shown improvement over the early ones. My only suggestion for improvement would be with audio. While listening through earbuds on my iPhone it can sometimes be difficult to find a comfortable volume between the hosts more baritone vocals and the guests varied vocals . Recently he has done a better job of normalizing the volume between episodes where early versions would end softly and the next episode would begin significantly louder. These are small things that shouldn’t deter you from listening and learning from the wealth of knowledge offed from this podcast. Hopefully episodes will be posted will continue through 2020.

Great content from all viewpoints

The adoption process has many views—adoptive parents, expectant moms, birth moms and agency staff to name a few. This podcast was informative and respectful of the beautiful and daunting adoption process. Highly recommend!
