For God called me to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for me. He is my example, and I must follow in His footsteps.

Other People's Shoes

On my show, I aim to create a space that allows us all to hear each other's points of view. Constructive dialog helps us all realize that truly hearing another person's story can enrich our lives. After all, when you walk in Other People's Shoes, you really do get a different perspective on life.

Neil Matthews


Neil has always wanted to know the Why? Whenever he is speaking with anyone he wants to know what is behind their action and to know their heart. He has always wanted to be in Other People's Shoes to be able to understand where they come from, and maybe be able to help them out. Being raised in the Rogue Valley there are plenty of opportunities to touch people in his community, but Neil wanted a way to touch the world. That is when Elizabeth Neil's wife mentioned he should start a podcast, and Other People's Shoes was born.
