I really enjoyed almost every episodes of your podcast until I started listening "If your partner deeply loves you, they will do these 3 things". I could not continue listening to it for more than 10 mins. I am shocked by the fact that for some people like "Stephan Labossiere", in order to sell themselves, they should devalue something. In his talk he is describing all women like a bunch of very narrow minded people who are just after having a man. The way he generalises people, the way he describes women like when he say "to get a worthy woman", is disgusting. Does he thinks he can price tag people?! @Lewis, I think you should be more selective when you pick people for your podcasts.
