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.

I enjoy it!

I love this couple. I have followed Alyssa for years and still remember writing her an email of thanks as a teenager one night for her blog that she once had. She walks in Godly wisdom and vulnerability. I do wish she would have more opportunity to speak on the podcast. Jeff gets going and sometimes I just want to hear more of what Alyssa has to say. I also am grateful for Jeff. I do think far too often in marriage podcasts the wives are talked over or need permission to speak. But, I acknowledge that could just be their personalities and comfort levels. Both have great “nuggets”!
