Brave questions

Neil stepped out his comfort zone having me on his show. He asked the questions most folks don't. And because of that, we went deep in search of the heart of the matter, and the heart of God. Thanks Neil! You're doing great work.

A true thinktank of a show

This is a podcast that actually lives up to it's stated theme. Neil asks the right questions to get inside the guest's mind and actually help them share their perspective--and it helps that he brings on thoughtful, insightful people for more than just a plug or a podium. There's a reason it's lasted as long as it has, and you'll feel that if you give it a listen.

Your weekly dose of empathy

Neil has a casual and approachable rapport with his guests - he is a vulnerable and affable host that has fun while going beyond your typical interview/personal story questions. An under the radar education of life lesson. A must listen.

I always get a fresh perspective on life when I listen to Other People's Shoes. It helps me see things from other people's view points and I understand where someone else is coming from. This show helps me be more compassionate with everyone I meet. We need this in the world today more than ever. I am so grateful for this show.

Money and Period talk... an open and honest conversation

I had a great time chatting with Neil! I appreciated Neil's transparency in that he wasn't totally comfortable talking about menstrual cycles which allowed for us to have an open and honest conversation about why this isn't just a woman's issue and how our partners can be more supportive. Neil was a great listener, asked thoughtful questions and his demeanor put me at ease instantly. Although his research may have hinted that I might not be a good fit for his show, his willingness to show up and be curious about who I am, what I do and what moments have left an imprint on me is to be commended. Thanks Neil!

Amazing show!

I am so glad I came across this show! I’ve taken so many actionable and practical nuggets of advice to implement. Love tuning in!

Real and Fun

I listened to Neil interview other guests before I became one, and I loved his style. He is the real deal and it's always fun. The whole shoe thing - what style shoe do you wear, or the size...and the game at the's just plain fun. I've been on many podcasts but Neil's curiosity led us into some real unplanned discussion. I had a great time.

FOOTPRINTS: Authentic Carolina Blue Shoes

He intentionally is creating harmony through 'Other People's Shoes' for all mankind. Neil's interview style brings out perspectives of just how different we believe can actually bring us together through understanding and respecting 'Other People Shoe's.' Thank you, OPS for inspiring us to UnLimit our personal beliefs and soar together~KT

Have we been friends forever?

Neil is such a great host. Our convo was real and friendly and fun! I have been on other shows where I felt like I was just a number to the host, but Neil doesn't look at it that way. We had a good laugh at each other here and there and the conversation really flowed. I would be a guest again - anytime. I am also suggesting some of my closest clients to be on Neil's show because I know he will be real with them too. Thanks, Neil for sharing other people's stories, life and sometimes laughter.

Creative and powerful

To put ourselves in “Other people’s shoes” is a common term for gaining understanding. But I love how Neil literally talks about shoes. Seeing life from other people’s perspective is powerful. Adding in the discussion about their personal shoes takes it even deeper making it more real - creative and fun.

What a great experience!

Neil as a true professional. His ability to make you feel welcomed on the show really stands out. It was a great time connecting with him. His passion for people's stories is top notch.

Love love love this podcast!

I love the authenticity, the humor and just the genuine conversation that happens on this podcast. I’ve always thought that the world is messed up because we cannot have good, quality conversations. Neil gives room for powerful conversations in this podcast. If you really want to see a difference in our world today, I would encourage you to listen to this podcast. Even when you don’t agree with the guest, just listen.

Had a great time!

I love Neil's mission for Other People's Shoes. Thankful for the opportunity to share my story on the shoe. Neil guided the conversation well and was a great host.

Entertaining and thought provoking

Neil finds the amazing guests and then asks them the powerful questions that draw out the nuggets of gold that I ponder the rest of the day. It's both entertaining and thought-provoking.

More than Me

In a society that is “me” focused, especially with social media, it’s refreshing to hear how my life intersects with others who may have a differing belief or way of living. Building bridges with other human beings involves communication -which I believe Neil does so well on this podcast! As a subscriber to Other People’s Shoes, it’s important for me as an author to glean pertinent ways of thought and ideology. I love how the OPS guests express themselves and host, Neil Matthews, creates exciting and friendly dialogue. It was also an honor to guest on this show and my experience was delightful. I’ve found that life is More than Me! YOU? Thanks OPS for doing a stellar job!


I was thrilled to be the guest on this particular podcast! Neil makes me feel so comfortable and our conversation was effortless. I felt as though we talked about life while sitting at the kitchen table drinking coffee. His choice of questions leads to profound highlights about my life, he navigated the storyline well. I appreciate his podcast because it challenges me to "walk in other people's shoes" first before I form an opinion about their choices.

Neil is a great guy

I really appreciate Niels thoughtful approach and the time he took to chat. I think that Neil is truly doing great things in the world and trying to help people. Thank you Neil!

Tied up in Knots?

I may not be able to literally walk in someone else’s shoes, but hearing their stories on podcasts such as, “Other People’s Shoes,” challenges me. Thanks, Neil, for utilizing your gift of communication. The show is so fresh and inspiring! I love listening on my evening walks and like learning about other people. “Other People’s Shoes” has a way of untangling the knots of stories and situations that others have experienced. Learning about their life challenges helps me to become a better person . Thanks OPS!
