John and Vanessa is a great combo

I love the both of you In totally different ways!! I could write a book on the complexity of your awesome relationship advice and how it has been a breath of fresh air to me! My only constructive criticism is to slow down your talking! Ha, ha! I know you both have so much info inside of you but it often comes off as aggressive and makes listening a bit difficult.

Otherwise love the podcast!
Still 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Not a fan of therapy sessions

Not loving the therapy sessions. Seems like trying to replicate Esther Perel’s sessions on her podcast. Getting to far away from angry therapist “therapy in a shot glass” that we all love. These therapy sessions are too long without anything to enlightening in them.

Lacking depth

I read one of john’s books about how to be single, in it i learned that he was miserable but then bought a motorcycle, joined crossfit and became a life coach. A year ago I listened to the podcast where he talked about joining crossfit, getting a motorcycle and becoming a life coach. Then his new book came out with his wife where he detailed joining crossfit, getting a motorcycle snd becoming a life coach. I stopped listening until just the other night I figured I would try again but I’m not kidding, the episode was about joining crossfit, getting a motorcycle and becoming a life coach. Ive done crossfit, I have a motorcycle and career, those things are ok but they arent at the root of my issues and dont help me in a meaningful way(beyond making me money and keeping me fit) and I would say that if crossfit changed your life you weren't that messed up to begin with.
