  • Anonymous on September 5th, 2018 - 10:34am


    You are repeating recently-heard episodes again! Please try to space out the time between repeat episodes. there have been at least 3 or more episodes that were recently aired, that you are airing again! “never for nothing” is one of them. Forgiving more or less, is another. and anger mismanagement, also. Please don’t play them so soon after we recently heard them. Thanks so much.

  • Maria on September 5th, 2018 - 10:45am


    Why do you have to live in Colorado, with today’s technology?

  • AgentX45 on September 5th, 2018 - 10:53am


    The next Podcast is with Mark Christopher Lawrence (voice of Ed Washington) who appeared in The Toy!

  • moderator on September 5th, 2018 - 10:56am


    @Anonymous/Maria, thank you for your feedback we appreciate hearing from you. The last time “Never for Nothing” was aired was November, 2015. Since we air episodes six days a week and only have 850+ episodes, they will repeat every few years. If you are hearing the episodes more frequently than that, please check with your local station as they may have chosen to repeat older episodes. Have a great day!

  • Moderator on September 5th, 2018 - 11:25am


    @Maria, this job requires extensive training that necessitates being onsite. Thanks for checking! If you have any more questions about the job feel free to email help@focusonthefamily.com

  • Texas girl on September 5th, 2018 - 7:38pm

  • Texas girl on September 5th, 2018 - 7:42pm


    Also @AGENTX45
    Did you mean “The Toy Man”. Or “The Toy”?

  • Marisa on September 6th, 2018 - 6:24am


    @AgentTX45 please no spoilers about the unreleased episodes. Those of us who aren’t in the club haven’t heard them yet. 🙁
