You think the playback is too fast?

For those who have a hard time listening because they feel the narrative is too fast, you can slow down the playback, at least if you’re listening on an IPhone or using Apple’s Podcast feature.
I typically listen at 1.25% just to go through podcasts faster! (Not THIS one, though)

Perfect for bite size nuggets

This is great I’m so happy I discovered I had no idea about this format via podcasts. Great practical tips on how to strengthen your relationship with your partner -not too much to digest or put into action
Thanks

Why No New Episodes?

I have been listening to this podcast for a while and no new episodes have been released for almost a year. Why no new material? This is my favorite podcast.
