Hole in My Heart Podcast

By Laurie and Matt Krieg

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to podcasts.


On this podcast we talk about how the gospel is good news for everyone everyday. The hosts, Matt and Laurie Krieg, are broken, beloved, and gospel-addicted. Matt, a licensed counselor, and Laurie, a teacher/writer/mentor interview others about how the gospel is good news for them every day alongside their friend, Producer Steve. In each week's Heart of the Matter, the group often invites guests to talk about things the Church leaves in the shadows but they want to bring to the light (Eph. 5:13). They also take a "trip" each week to Goofball Island (where you can "take a vacation from your problems"), and answer the Question of the Week alongside listeners. It's fun. It's deep. Join us.

Dear Laurie and Matt,

Keep expressive interjections to a minimum. Like: Aye, yay, wow, uh-huh, uh, oh, like, yes, yep...There does not need to be an expression of agreement after every single phrase; it's distracting.

Explain or refrain inside jokes or even jokes that carry over from other episodes. Some people are tuning in for the first time and might feel lost if they are not caught up to speed.

It's difficult for the listener to connect when they can't see facial expressions etc. so my advice is to explain what people can't see.

Matt needs to speak up and be more confident. It's almost like he is unsure if he should speak. Laure is great but sometimes dominates the program and interjects a ton.

It would be great to have people that are dealing with sexual identity issues and porn. Maybe, husbands and wives dealing with porn or addiction.

I suggest checking out the following podcasts:

Stuff you should know

You don't need to be like them, but it might be helpful to listen to the craft. Usually, I just write a short review, but I want to see this podcast succeed. I know that this podcast is new, but it's so important. I was listening to your "Holy hate" podcast with my wife, and we looked at each other and had to stoplistening to it. It was too chaotic to listen to.

Sometimes as Christians we like to encourage because it's the Christian thing to do but sometimes honest feedback is needed. This is especially true when dealing with such important issues.

With hope,

Active listener

Thank you!!!

Thank you Matt and Laurie for staying true and authentic to who you are…these podcasts the rocking my world!!!

Authenticity at its best

This is real life, people. From "Goofball island" to the "Heart of the Matter," Matt and Laurie & producer Steve get real each & every episode. Want to know what it's like to "work out your salvation," get a ringside seat for this podcast, cuz that's exactly what's going on.
