The interrupting is too much
I want to love this podcast, because the guests and the topics are SO GOOD. But I just had to turn off an episode halfway through because Katie won’t stop talking over and interrupting her guests. I get that that’s how you might talk with your friends when it’s just the two of you, but for the love of god please let people finish their sentences before you loudly jump in and tell your own story or share your own opinion.
I’m gonna take a break and come back in a few episodes since I’m hoping Katie gets the hang of interviewing people and let’s them do the talking.
Love your podcast about pelvic floor physical therapy
I loved your podcast about the pelvic floor, interviewing Stephanie Pendergast. I am glad you are advertising how important postpartum recovery is. I am a recent mom (4 months postpartum) and I am actually a pelvic floor physical therapist myself, and work for one of the largest pelvic floor only physical therapy clinics in the country, Sullivan Physical Therapy in Austin, TX. I co-host a podcast called PT Below The Waist. We discuss how Pelvic floor physical therapy can help treat bladder, bowel, sexual dysfunction, pelvic pain, and pregnancy and postpartum issues. My co-host and I also teach pelvic floor continuing education classes throughout the country. If you are interested in us coming on your podcast to learn more about pelvic floor conditions and PT, we would love to do so. If you are interested in coming onto our podcast, we would LOVE to interview and hear your views on postpartum care and new outlook on how important it is to take care of your pelvic floor, we would LOVE to have you. You can reach out to us on our Facebook page PT Below The Waist. Check out our podcast if you get a chance! We’ll be listening to yours! Thanks for getting the word out there about post partum journey!
Best podcast ever especially for this new mom who has no idea!! Real worries, real situations, and real fears all discussed as if hanging out with friends! I hope to hear more from Katie’s crib!
