Very good topics, very boring implementation
The podcast is very informative. They tackle very relevant issues and discuss articles. While I learn a lot from the podcast, I struggle finishing an episode because for some reason, the host is boring. She also does not come across as confident about what she says she believes, although I think it’s just a personality thing. I do enjoy it immensely when she invites engaging speakers. I would, however, rather listen to the podcasts of her guests than her, unfortunately. That said, this podcast is still a good resource to find information on good books or resources.
I love hearing the insight each episode brings! Keep it up!
-Cherishing Childhood: The Low-Tech Parenting Podcast
Fun and educational
This was a great episode. I am graduating in December and I start working as a two year old teacher next week. I am so excited. I’m all about teaching my children love for themselves and for other human beings. Human kindness is one of my biggest goals. Listening to you two makes me even more excited. Thank you!
