I love 555

Thank you Todd for insisting on this episode! It was exactly what I needed. I have been listening to Zen Parenting off and on for a number of years. Every time I start up again I wonder why I stopped listening in the first place! I love everything about your podcast. Thanks for being there for me!!!

Helping me through this very unusual time!!

I started listening to Todd and Cathy about a year ago when I found myself in depression and anxieties because motherhood just felt so unnatural for me. Todd and Cathy have made me laugh so hard with their humor and light-hearted conversation, and also cry because I finally felt like I was not alone in this. They’re insightful, authentic and non-judgemental. It just so happened that I decided to join their third podcast Team Zen right before Safer at home was ordered in California, and they decided to do more talks during this time! This support group and community led by Todd and Cathy makes you feel heard and seen. Encourages everyone to do our own work with empathy and resources. Can’t recommend this podcast enough!
