My favorite podcast
I love both Zach and Laura and the value that they bring into my life. I am honestly more likely to actively listen to this podcast than any other podcast I’ve given attention to, and I think it’s the presence of more than one opinion and voice, and I absolutely love hearing these two discuss these insanely relatable and relevant topics. I look forward to this podcast every week, and I hope that it continues. Thank you to both Zach and Laura for providing insight into marriages, as well as personal emotions, on a regular basis. I truly think listening to this podcast has been extremely beneficial within my life and my marriage.
Thoughtful and Wonderful
MTP is such a wonderful podcast to listen to for tips, tricks, and all things about marriage. Zach and Laura are all about self improvement and understanding that hard work in a marriage really pays off! Great info to listen to but also to laugh along with.
I like Laura and the content
I’ve been listening for about 2 years. I enjoy the Gottman centered content and Laura’s genuine, pure spirit! I would have given this 5 stars if not for Zack. I don’t know how Laura works with him... he can be really negative and shuts down almost everything she says.
Overall interesting content and very helpful insights!
