Parenting Without Losing Your Partnership When Baby Arrives - Stan Tatkin and Kara Hoppe - 350
If you’re a parent, you know that bringing a new human into your life is a drastic change. It can be difficult to maintain a balance with your own needs, the needs of your partner, and the needs of your baby, especially for the first few years. If you and your partner aren’t prepared, it can also be problematic for the parent-child relationship. Listen as I talk with Dr. Stan Tatkin and Kara Hoppe about how better partners make better parents, their new book Baby Bomb, and how learning to be interdependent creates a safe and healthy relationship “cushion” for the whole family.

Great action-based tools
So much great info, with juicy tips and questions to ask yourself to help you find a healthy relationship. It helped me end a relationship that was loving but not serving my non-negotiable needs with grace, heal and grow in clarity—and now, establishing a relationship that works for me and my partner.
Thanks after break up
This is helping me work through a recent break up and see the reasons it happened and what key elements were missing from the relationship. Makes me actually feel positive about the future and confirms that what I sensed was missing was valid real stuff that matters. Thanks.
Self-promotional and disrespectful to both the highly skilled professionals he interviews & audience
I really wanted to like this podcast because he has some amazingly skilled couples therapists and attachment pioneers on from time to time, and I tried hard to give it a chance but every episode left me with a high level visceral experience of disgust.
For all the 20-25 minute short podcasts, he spends the first 10 minutes rattling on about wanting people to leave him great reviews. Self-promo should not be 40-50% of the episode - that feels really self-serving and was a real turnoff not just from the podcast but the "school" itself. I saw him use a lot of other hyper agressive toxic patriarchal marketing tactics on instagram and fb ads and wish this guy would give being real and authentic a try instead of using those approaches which are such a turnoff.
One of the other awful things was I kept feeling like he's not fully present with the people he interviews - he often cuts them off in the middle of them making a really good point to interject with a question he things is more important, but it's usually nowhere near as interesting as what they were saying. Then he has these amazingly gifted relationship therapists on and I swear I could hear him checking out at times and wondered if it was just me, but nope - then I could hear his keyboard super quickly and loudly clacking away WHILE HIS GUESTS ARE TALKING. Instead of listening to this great, skilled professionals and learning from them so he can get better at what he does, he wastes the opportunity by multitasking which is rude to them, but also rude to listeners because then they have to navigate the distraction instead of being able to soak up the wisdom of these incredible people. Jayson seems to very focused on himself, which I get comes from some unresolved wounding and insecurites, but wow - to think you are trying to teach other people from that place instead of taking what these people who are more skilled and experienced in and learn and grow. Honestly just awful. Don't waste as many hours on it as I did. There are so many other relationship podcasts out there that actually respect the people it interviews and where people are humble and take responsibility for their humanness.
