Refreshing

I don’t normally write reviews for podcasts, but I just had to for these two! Sometimes I take a break from listening to podcasts. When I open up my podcast app again I’m always excited to listen to new episodes from MTR! I love how raw their discussions are and they don’t sugar coat anything. I’ve learned a lot from them and have been able to apply what I learn to my own relationship. ❤️ thank you! P.S. Try Tipsy Cow burger bar in Redmond when you two go on your friend retreat!

Relatable, helpful, all-around excellent

Zach and Laura explore topics that of course pertain to marriage, but also to every kind of relationship. I love their realness. Sure, I love the dad jokes and stories about timeshares, but the meat of their podcast is how navigate complex issues within our relationships, marriages, and ourselves. Excellent.

Enjoy it

Very helpful in how to approach my marriage. Has been a wonderful tool to have. However, if I were you I would have less of Beth Wylie ep 223. When you said she doesn’t have a filter, I felt like she added the f word wayyy too many times, and really threw off the flow of what the show typically has. But other than that, good show
