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.

Episode #178 - Gratitude for Neil and his podcast

This was a new experience for me, but Neil made me feel comfortable- Neil is a good guy and easy to talk with… I highly recommend being a guest and or listening to his podcast.


My podcast - Choices

I greatly enjoyed my time together today and appreciated the opportunity to be on your podcast. Thank you for your advice and I hope my story continues to bring hope and encouragement to others. Thank you for helping me promote my book and my message.


Great experience

As a podcast host I know how difficult it can be to make a good conversation happen, Neil's questions helped me tell my experience and it was a blast to be able to be a guest.


Personable, energetic & easy to talk to!

I loved talking with Neil. He made me feel like an old friend. He was an excellent host, with a great sense of humor and depth of heart. Neil asked really good questions that made me think and reflect on the subject. I appreciate that he wasn’t afraid to ask hard questions, and also that he was sensitive to not press an issue or dig too deep. Definitely time well spent!


I enjoyed our talk

Thank-you for allowing others to walk in my shoes. I enjoyed our time together and you made me feel very comfortable. This was my first time being on a podcast and you made my first experience wonderful.


Sparkling Water

What a JOY to be interviewed by Neil! The interview was calm and free-flowing, even with the difficult topic of molestation and an attempted kidnapping. The listener is captivated by Neil's genuine interest in his guest, and his conversational style is like pouring sparkling water from a pitcher. Sign up and "keep in step" with Other People's Shoes!


Great experience on the podcast with Neil!

Neil asked great questions that got me telling stories I don't normally tell in interviews. That's a good host!


Great Conversation!

Talking with Neil was great. He was a well-spoken, attentive conversation partner. It was a fun time together, and I'm grateful for his work on this podcast.


Walking with Neil

It is so great to take a walk and talk with another person about important things. Neil invited me to walk with him and talk about how to help cultivate hope in ourselves and in our kids in the shadow of this hard world. He is an excellent interviewer, friendly, funny, and well-informed. He does his homework. It was a pleasure to be on OPS. ~Lori Wildenberg loriwildenberg.com


Refreshing and Comfortable

I have been a guest on 15 different podcasts and have experienced a wide variety of styles when it comes to interviewers. What I appreciated most about Neil is that he gave me time to tell my story. He made me feel like my story mattered (because I truly believe it did to him). His questions were not only well timed but were set up in way that created intrigue so that people would want to hear my answer. Neil truly made it feel like we were sitting at a coffee shop having a dialogue. Being a guest on his show was both refreshing and comfortable. I would highly recommend anyone to be a guest on Other People's Shoes.


Perspective and Understanding

Understanding and perspective shifts are essential in our torn and divided country/world right now if we can ever find our way back to unity and healing. Neil is intentional in trying to hear through the ears and see through the eyes of others. Great example of encouraging people to be authentic and know we are all okay as we are, in whatever our shoe size or style is. As a listener, I've been inspired and encouraged. As a guest I felt like we were in miniostry together to bring new perspectives and understanding. Laura L. Padgett, Award-winning author, "Jesus in Shorts" and "Dolores Like the River".

A joy to be a guest on this show

I have been a guest on many shows, podcasts as well as radio. So I know that one never can be sure how an interview will go. Neil did a great job of asking questions and bringing a tough topic of dealing with the broken and shadowy parts of life into a light of hope and healing. He was interested in the topic and in me as a guest. It was a relaxed and authentic experience as he provided a platform for me to share my own hope and healing, which of course is the objective when attempting to reach out and help others recovering from trauma. I will recommend OPS to other people who would like to be on podcasts too as well as people who, like me, enjoy listening to good podcasts. Laura L.

Digging Deep For Our Shadow Stories

I thoroughly enjoyed being a guest on the Other People's Shoes podcast with Neil. It's was tough looking at some of the shadows that I carried for so long, but also rewarding to see where I've come as a result of those very shadows. Neil, you did an outstanding job of interviewing because you made it so conversational. And I love the concept of walking in other people's shoes. Really it's a core part of living an authentic life. Thanks Neil! Chris


Finding the Gold

Neil is a fabulous interviewer because he listens. He finds the gold hidden within your responses to ask the out of the ordinary question. The one he asked me, brought me to tears. The question and my response took our conversation deeper. Our conversation felt as if we'd known each other for years.


Great Podcast

The overall spirit of this podcast is a joyful one. I so enjoy the way Neil weaves his questions in with telling stories and giving his guests the opportunity to speak comfortably in their own story. I highly recommend this for anyone who is interested in truly thinking about what it would be like to walk with a different point of view.


A breath of fresh air!

Neil is super personable, a great host with a wonderful balance of humor and intentionality of deep questions. Truly an enjoyable podcast - take a listen and be changed and encouraged.


Are you enough

Loved it, so easy to talk to, easy going. Time went fast. He was so easy to work with. Highly recommend working with him


Fun and Authentic

Neil's interview style starts with fun and lighthearted conversation, but there's purpose behind it. His conversations with guests go deeper with each question resonating with audiences giving you the sense of walking in other people's shoes.


Moving forward

Extremely blessed time with this podcast


Fun and life changing!

Neil is literally a blast, felt like I was talking to my best friend and at the same time he did a masterful job at allowing me to communicate my message. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this show!


Safe Space to share your story

Neil provides an amazingly safe space for people to share their stories. His presence is inviting putting you at ease immediately. I had an amazing time recording with him today! I truly believe because of his obviously genuine heart he will impact the masses. Thank you Neil for such and amazing experience!


Spend more

We all need to spend more time inhabiting the perspectives of others, so I love the focus of this show, and I love Neil's curiosity. I especially appreciated the recent episode about ecumenicalism.


Extremely Impactful

Every person is given a unique life testimony from God, and this show allows the world to hear those stories in a way that God can use to encourage and help other people going through similar situations feel like they aren’t alone.


A must listen!!

Neil is the real deal!! An amazing interviewer, asking the hard questions and listening with grace and understanding! Thankful for the work that you’re doing and the perspective from “Other People’s Shoes”!! Keep up the powerful work!


Great podcast.

I love the concept behind this podcast. Such great insight on various topics.


Thoughtful and entertaining

Neil does a great job going deep with his guests and sharing their stories. I think we can all benefit from this virtual walk in other people’s shoes!


Great podcast!

I love hearing all the different stories that make up other people’s lives. Neil does a fabulous job of leading the listener on a walk in other people’s shoes.


Shot of Light into the Mind

There are a lot of wonderful podcasts available to listen to but when I find one that is unique and original I have to write about it. Other People's Shoes, Neil Matthews has this rare ability to have you enjoy yourself the entire time, yet come away with nuggets of wisdom that change your life in the happiest ways! You'll love this podcast!


Finding Hidden Gems

Neil doesn’t just get information from his guests. He takes us on a sympathetic journey that allows us to draw from and learn from the lives of others. And where do these gems come from? Our neighbor we haven’t talked to, the stranger behind us at the airport or maybe even the bad driver who cut us off in traffic. Discover these hidden gems and learn something about yourself as well.


Thorough and relevant

Neil has thought of every question and asked it. His podcasts are in-depth, researched well, and highly relevant to life.
