I just discovered this podcast a couple weeks ago, and I'm so glad I did! Highly recommend this to anyone looking to discover new perspectives for helping to encourage their own growth, especially in their relationships. This podcast has helped remind/enlightenment me to the importance of stayingn on the same team with your partner in moments of conflict (remembering that you are working towards the same goals), that relationships are fundamental to learning about yourself and expanding your ego into a higher sense of self, and many many other lessons -- highly recommended!
insightful, interesting, amusing and so relevant
The topics and interviews in this podcast provide great insight into what is going on in my life and in my relationships. It gives me great perspective into how I relate to others and how I might do that in ways that deepen my ability to connect and navigate deep, rich relationships. I wish everyone I love would listen to this ongoing discussion on relationships and living a mindful and meaningful life. I give it a big thumbs up. Thanks for putting together such an intereting and helpful program.
Finally! A relationship podcast that resonates!
I am fortunate to have found this podcast scrolling through my Facebook Newsfeed.
John meets with guests to go beyond the typical relationship advice to talk about what makes a relationship truly first-class.
And it’s not just based on what people think works... John has dug in and done the research to back up his points.
It’s clear Ready Set Love is trying to help the landscape for couples to take their relationship to the next level.
I can’t wait to listen in on all the podcasts to come.
