Golden Nugget

I have been listening to the Bethke’s podcast for years now. There wisdom is always appreciated, their humor keeps it light and refreshing, and their life tips are very useful. I love that they keep the time between 30-40 minutes to honor our time. They bring out the golden nuggets without taking too much time and they always offer thoughts that relate directly to their title. I can trust that my listen will be fruitful. Thanks, Jeff and Alyssa!

Fun, insightful, but want more

I’ve been following the Bethkes ever since Jeff’s YouTube vids went viral. Absolutely love this young couple and the random conversations they bring to the podcast. I always learn something and feel inspired to draw closer to God. Their culture of family being a team has changed my life.

One feedback that I think will make this podcast even better: I wish there was more space for Alyssa to share. Alyssa has a way of sharing real truths so vulnerable and honestly. She challenges us to continually look to the Lord. I get frustrated and sad whenever she gets cut off by Jeff or Jeff gets going on a topic he’s passionate about and we don’t get to hear from Alyssa. I also understand from previous podcasts that it just may be their personalities.. but I find myself always missing Alyssas perspective. Please please slow down so Alyssa can talk.

Sound matters

LOVE the substance covered in this channel. However, the constant throat clearing, snot inhaling, and “uuuuummmms” is too much for me. I was practicing to ignore the uuuummms but the snot and throat clearing right into the mic is cringey. I don’t know if you realize how many times per episode it occurs, it’s distracting for a person like me who already has a hard time focusing.
