Great family podcast

Highly enjoyable and entertaining listen if you have a family with small children. As a stay at home mom it’s just really great to feel like you have friends walking along the same journey. Melanie and Dom have similar interests to me and my husband, and they are just so interesting and down to earth. I think I have found a favorite podcast! Can’t wait to hear the next episode.

The Mysterious World... of Family Life!

As a listener of SQPN’s other podcasts, I found this one a fun change of pace. I often listen to “Mysterious World” or “Secrets of Star Trek” on my own (though my wife loves hearing about them), but my wife and I have started listening to “Raising the Betts” together as they come out weekly. With a little one (and more on the way), sometimes we break up an episode over a few days, but we love listening to parents who are adventurous, quirky, and Catholic like us. Dom and Melanie give a fun gloss on their week, then talk about recipe ideas (a few of which I have stopped to write down), movies and shows, books, and more. Overall, I like how “humanizing” the show is—after lifting off with stellar mysteries and Star Trek commentaries, it’s good to return home to the extraordinary ordinary but no less Mysterious world of family life!

Sympatico father of five!

I’ve been reading Dom and Melanie’s blogs for years now and hearing their voices is like seeing a radio personality in the flesh! As a fellow father of five with similar interests, Catholic Faith, etc. I enjoyed this inaugural episode and look forward to many more. Dom has a great “radio voice” too.
