  • Love the content, stop saying fascinating!!

    I love this podcast and the content Melissa covers, I only have one nitpicking comment and it’s to find some synonyms for “fascinating” because it’s distracting

  • Wanted to love

    The host uses every episode as an opportunity to manipulate the listener into buying her memberships and paid courses. I find her to be tacky and slightly condescending in her delivery.

  • Great podcast for everyone who wants or is homesteading!

    Melissa does a spectacular job highlighting all aspects of homesteading. She shares her wealth of knowledge readily and interviews many experts in their field as well as all levels of homesteaders. From beginner to seasoned she does a beautiful job sharing so many incredible individuals with her audience.

  • Tired of having to research her “facts”

    The podcast is interesting and I enjoy her verse of the week. However, she often conflates science with pseudoscience. I find myself needing to research her “scientifically backed” information to see if it’s actually rooted in real science or just old-timey folks wisdom. I’m all in to hear about both, but I wish she were much more clear about what has been legitimately researched and what’s not. I suspect it’s not her intention to obfuscate, she just doesn’t actually know the difference.

  • Love it!

    Like many of us in 2022, I am reinvigorating my interest in gardening and self-sufficiency, and good old-fashioned “know-how”. Melissa is really enjoyable to listen to, and I learn a lot. I particularly loved her Dad being part of some episodes and sharing his memories of growing up in the Depression. I was not raised a Christian, but absolutely embrace the wisdom of Biblical and Judeo-Christian values (now more than ever), so I really enjoy the verse of the week. Thank you, Melissa!
