Customer Reviews

Shallow content

If you’re looking for intelligence, actionable advice backed by professionals, or anything beyond a shallow conversation between two rich white people, don’t listen to this. If you’re looking for something rooted in Christianity, don’t listen to this. If you’re looking for Pinterest-level quotes that you can pin on your wall, search Pinterest and save yourself some time by not listening to this. Rachel doesn’t have a single original idea to offer and all of her catchy one liners can be found in a million other self-help books in the discount bin at your local bookstore. Dave is the most valuable part of this podcast and she interrupts him every chance she gets, which makes me think they don’t have any real communication or active listening skills in their own relationship. It’s communication 101 to know that you’re supposed to let your partner finish. I applaud them for putting themselves out here and opening up their relationship to everyone, but the problem is, you have to be able to effectively speak to the topics at hand and they can’t do that. If they’ve been to a bunch of therapy, it would be great for them to invite a licensed therapist on the show to help them dig deeper into some of these topics, rather than rely on click bait headlines alone and repeatedly disappoint people.

Fun, but not much substance

They’re fun, but I really haven’t found a lot of substance in this podcast. It’s pretty strongly self-helpy, and you wear out quickly on that because it’s pretty self-consumed. I also feel like it’s marriage tips for the upper class. A lot of the suggestions for date night and things like that just aren’t realistic for people of a lower income that might struggle to afford a babysitter, much less dates out. I couldn’t relate to it much.
I feel like it’s a podcast that’s good for mostly good marriages, where both people are motivated to make the marriage the best it can be. It’s not very relevant to really struggling marriages where the couple isn’t in that place.

Moving on.

At first, you’ll become a fan girl. The more you listen you realize you wouldn’t even want to know Rachel in real life. As some other reviews have stated the ego is big in this one. Rachel’s true personality comes out the more you listen and she’s the reason I can’t listen any more. She’s full of herself and isn’t thankful for her listeners. She’s complained on more than one occasion about fans annoying her. Also, I feel she talks down to Dave and it irks my soul. So, at first listen you’ll be mesmerized then you’ll realize her true colors. Unless your a groupie who is obsessed without having any feedback or criticism, good and bad. So many follow aimlessly. Does she have good points, yes. But apply them and keep going with you life. No need to become a blind follower.
