Thank you so much for putting Laura on your podcast and encouraging her with ideas on how to clean this mess up. I appreciate your ideas and concerns with this terrible issue. Malloy needs to get this through his head how really important the issues are for these young ladies and the disrespect he has shown.
Thank you 👏👍🙏

Matt Todd is not crazy! Awesome quick tidbits for kids and former kids.

Started listening to podcast because my son was bringing home all sorts of wild stories (and cool merch) about his SAT prep class, and wanted to see if the teacher was nuts.

After a few episodes, realized that Matt has and amazing energy and can communicate and get the best out of kids in all the right ways.

Now I listen for myself, as I always come away more motivated to be present with my kids, fired up to attack things that are hard or that scare me and in general feeling better about the world.

Matt Todd U. IYKYN!!

A great host who publishes valuable content

I had the honor of sitting down recently with Matt Todd to talk about my run for school board. Matt made me feel right at home and talked with me about the important issues our community is facing. When you talk with Matt, you instantly understand that he’s a bridge builder, he’s all about open, honest dialogue, and that he wants to work toward solutions by giving people the space to have a real conversation. He’s not about sound bites. He’s about productive dialogue. He’s a talented and kind member of our community and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to meet and talk with him, and that our community has someone like Matt that brings voices to the surface.
