    You polluted a great topic by bringing up politics!

    I am loving the guests, interviews and perspectives. But when you turn the talk to politics, and who won an election much to your chagrin, you lost me. Why polite the memory of such a beautiful soul with your political views. For that reason, I’m out. ✌🏼

    Uplifting listen in anxious times

    This is a wonderful and affirming reminder about what we learned from Fred Rogers when we were young. I highly recommend this to everyone who enjoys podcasts, especially parents and educators.

    Wonderful thoughtful beautiful

    A very well done and thoughtful show. Carvell is a talented and smart interviewer who demonstrates a genuine care and interest in whomever he is talking to and about. He really nails the key questions and issues that arise when considering Fred Rogers and the radical love that Fred lived and communicated. And he is present just enough to voice our questions and thoughts yet not so much that he and his experiences are the focus of the discussion. Carvell is certainly not a typical talking head. The production and editing are also beautifully done making this a joy to listen to.

    Hearing a story from a different voice

    Before I started listening I read one of the reviews that criticized the host for being racist, taking a statement out of context about how Mr Rogers was important in a way that transcends race. As I listened to one episode after another, I felt sad for the reviewer that missed the point and wished they could hear it with the heart touching beauty I did. It’s not that I think my way is better, it’s just that I got nothing but joy from this and I wish that same joy for others rather than the past hurt that reviewer experienced that this podcast actually talks about if one can bear to listen with an open heart and sit with their own historic pain. I enjoyed the segment where they were talking about the author that asked what a black man thought of Mr Rogers and I have to say I’m guilty of wondering that and I know that’s clumsy and awkward and probably sigh-inducing at best for Mr Wallace, but I also think it can come from a place of actually realizing that my lower middle class white experience wasn’t universal and maybe everybody didn’t experience positive feelings from the things I did and feeling genuinely curious rather than just making assumptions. I have heard Mr Rogers discussed many times because he’s a hero and I devour all media about him but hearing this host and the voices he chose to discuss was wonderful. Different topics were approached in ways I had never considered and I feel enriched both in general and in my overall consideration of the impact of Fred Rogers. I love W. Kamau Bell, and I didn’t realize how much I needed and how special it would be to hear him talk about ugly snot crying if he got to meet Mr Rogers and loving that someone I’d respected as a talented rockstar in his own right would dissolve into the same little emotional fangirl/fanboy awe puddle as me. Just one example of too many great moments. Listening to this podcast was kind of like what they said about what Mr Rogers gave to the kids - I felt like a participant in the conversation rather than just the audience. I wrote down several thoughts shared by Mr Wallace and various guests as things I want on sticky notes to see and remind me to Be the Fred Rogers you want to see in the world! Definitely worth the time! Thanks to all who gifted their voices for new perspectives and getting to feel a oneness in appreciation for a man who united rather than divided!

    Gratitude

    When I was a child, Mr. Rogers saved my life. When I was an adult, he saved my life again. And again and again. Thank you for sharing the wisdom of his vocation.

    What an amazing listen

    This podcast was so carefully done and goes above and beyond what I expected. The connections that Carvell and his team made with the current day, to the adults who were Neighborhood listeners as kids and to society as a whole made it so meaningful. Most definitely one of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to. Thank you!

    Don’t be fooled by the title

    I feel like many reviewers were looking to find Mr. Rogers in his show. But what Carvell does is looks for who Mr. Rogers/Fred was, how he touched the lives of others, and how those others found Fred in themselves. It was introspective on Carvell’s part, as by the end he’s looking to find Fred in himself. But he also invites us to find Fred in ourselves. The journey is beautiful. If you don’t understand the other perspectives, that’s okay. Think about how it relates to you. How can you find Fred in yourself? How can you bring more Fred to our world? I’m looking to myself for these answers each day from here forward. Thanks Mr. Rogers, and thanks Carvell!

    A redefinition of a legend.

    Politics in the first 20 seconds. Purely a reinterpretation of his non political career for the express purpose of forwarding a progressive agenda. Complaining about people taking advantage of the nostalgia moment while doing so at the same time.

    How does Mr. Rogers help?

    This was a great podcast! I really appreciated thinking about so many of the lessons Mr. Rogers taught us as children and how we need to continue them into our adult world. What does it mean to be a good neighbor? Are you a helper? Thank you for putting this together and bringing thought provoking ideas forward. Life changing.

    Thank you.

    What a gift you’ve given us, Carvell. Pandemic/Election/Political Upheavals — it’s gotten most of us afraid, angry, and too inwardly focused to remember to see the light. I appreciate your vulnerability, honesty, deep questioning, and example. I learned from you as you reminded me to learn from him, so thank you.(I was born in 1964, so Mr. Rogers and I have been friends for most of my life. I was prime audience when they started. My brother was born 6 years later, and I loved that I could continue watching even though I was “too old” for the program.)
