I am a Certified EFT Therapist and I am saddened at the very limited mindsets of some of the guests you have on this podcast. I just listened to the Healing From Religious Harm episode and felt disgusted as I listened. The guest is spewing the same kind of prejudices that she says she had to heal from growing up in a religious family. The assumptions she makes about how religious people don’t emphasize human relationships and are all filled with shame aren’t broadly accurate, but she speaks about these things as though this is truth with a capital T. She and the hosts fail to point out that those are unhealthy subsystems within religion. Instead, she talks about religion as being wrong, a toxic system, abusive, and incompatible with critical thinking. I can’t even believe how judgmental this episode is, and how the hosts join right in. What about the people who do believe the tenets of their religion, not because they’ve been indoctrinated but because like me, they came to the conclusion later in life after plenty of exposure to higher education and scientific work and even after my own period of atheism? Are you ok if religious people listen to this and think that somehow they’re not ok because this guest is saying religious people are childlike, not accessing their inner resources, not able to make good decisions, etc? This whole episode is so rife with prejudice, broad-brushing, and errors in logic that it is clearly a just a platform for airing the hosts’ and guest’s personal feelings about religion, which is really not what I thought this podcast was about. To call something you don’t like “toxic” is pitiful and weak. I won’t be listening to this pod anymore. If I use the guest’s definition, I am now traumatized by listening to this. I’m hearing that I’m not ok, that I’ve been brainwashed, that believing in sin is toxic. So disappointed.
I’ve been listening for quite a while now and was hoping the sound quality would get better because the content is really awesome. I just really encourage you to update or completely overhaul whatever you’re using because the sound quality is not good and I think that you lose a lot of viewers because of it. I love everything you guys talk about you guys have been so helpful with me understanding emotionally focused couples therapy and individual therapy. That is the reason for the four star review instead of five star. I’ve never written a review before on any other podcast but I am really loving the show and I really want to encourage you to update the sound.
