Good family content on many many life topics dealing with kids, marriage, and all the things related to kids and marriage.
I think it’s brilliant to allow your children to take ownership of this podcast! This is such motivating and inspiring content and the ease of listening while working/driving. Thank you Murphy’s! Well done.
This is a great resource for not only parents and teens but anyone. So genuine and relevant life skills and practical advise. I call this the new “Murphy’s Law” and it is a good thing!
