Midwife

I love the content, but the casual, self-congratulatory banter between the hosts detracts from the inspirational potential of this podcast. Clean it up, bring more genuine passion for your message, and you will have a much bigger impact.

Some useful info but way too many derisive comments

I listened to the episode called The Hierarchy of Understanding and while there was some good information, I found the hosts to be very condescending. Stop deriding those who don’t meet your standards and saying how they missed the mark of how to start with why. Focus more on the principles of this idea and how people can implement it instead. I found the episode really hard to listen to and found myself cringing at the hosts’ disparaging comments. Yes, we get it, you’re the experts. Just stop rubbing it in our faces already.

Disappointing

This was disappointing, and I am a big fan of Simon .. it didn’t feel genuine, was very scripted, and poor comedy
