It was nice to stumble upon this story and all of its nostalgia. I loved Raffi when I was little and enjoyed this reflection on him and his story. I even named my childhood dog Raffi.

I started with season two, first thing I thought of when I really started listening was that Raffi is the modern day Mr. Rogers, lol then I noticed Fred Rogers is the topic of season one! Both refuse commercialization, child centered ❤️ both excellent seasons in their own way, recommended lesson❣️

Thank you so much for the podcast Finding Raffi. I am really enjoying learning all about Raffi especially since I have been a fan of his music since the very beginning of his career of singing children songs. I have been a Nanny for 40 years and teaching the children I have cared for in the past,...Read full review »

This, thoughtful, nostalgic, professional, and well researched podcast was a balm to my Pandemic. If Season 3 isn’t about Bob Ross I don’t know what I’ll do.

This podcast had me visiting a head space I hadn’t been in for 20 years+. Never did I think I’d be so connected to something that I just knew from watching kids in the 80s/90s He’s such a beautiful man and to learn even more about him was delightful

I was immediately excited to hear the Finding Raffi podcast as his songs littered my childhood’s soundtrack. Hearing episode one, I am trying very hard not to binge the next and next, take a beat and pause as Raffi might do. I was singing along, I knew every word deep in the fibre of my muscles,...Read full review »

I am really enjoying the show itself. The interviews and use of Raffi’s music throughout is lovely, but there seems to be consistent problems with editing. The conversation has jumped noticeably without a transition multiple times, making me rewind to see if I missed something, or pressed a skip...Read full review »

Really fun to ebb and flow between the different central people to the story. I’m genuinely curious about all the topics and he keeps me interested. I find myself rewinding if I miss something !

I didn’t realize I know so many Raffi songs! Lots of nostalgia listening to this, but it’s firmly grounded in the present day with its perspective.

Haven’t thought about Raffi since I was a kid, and it’s a joy to rediscover him as an adult through this podcast. Highly recommended!
Ron1989! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/22
The reason why kids still love Raffi is because he’s a great musician. This podcast reveals why!
Ryan Britt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/22
A thoughtful, joyful, insightful look at the children’s performer. Excited for the next episode!

liz_6_5_9 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/22
Don’t care anything about this new character Raffi — who ever that is. Please, please change this back to Finding Fred so I can share it with others.
rufus426 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/11/22
This podcast is a treat to listen to as you are reminded about Mr Rogers and all the kindness he embodies and acceptance that we all need. To have something uplifting to listen to in these times of division is the best way to reset your outlook. Thank you.
lottaearth via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 01/07/22
The first few minutes of episode one ruined the credibility of the podcast for me. You would reach more people if you left politics out of it.
Kate4389 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/21
Carvell crafts a masterful podcast that reveals beautiful and unknown stories about Mr. Fred Rogers while also sharing deep truths &amp; insights about all of us. The guests he interacts with in each episode are as thoughtful as the questions Carvell asks them. They tell a well rounded story of a...Read full review »

In some ways, I regret that I didn’t find this series until now, in other ways, maybe it is the perfect time. I was so moved, inspired to contemplate my own emotional life, etc, appreciative of Carvell Wallace and his guests’ reflections on Mr Rogers, life, empathy, presence, vulnerability, love,...Read full review »

Finding Fred tells such a beautiful story about an extraordinary man that had such an amazing understanding of children and life. A man who had a beautiful heart that was comfortable sharing that. I am totally in alignment with his philosophy of treating children as little people with the...Read full review »

Such a beautiful podcast speaking great truth on so many levels
paulagayle42 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/21/21
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. ✌🏼

Love this deep dive by Mr. Wallace!!
thesaraw via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/21
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.
Calma mama via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/21
Such an insightful look at the teachings of Mr. Rodgers and how it resonates in us and in our world. So happy I listened and I recommended it to everyone!!❤️
kzmamalady via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/21
Finding Fred is very well produced, I binged the whole 10 episodes in two days. Loved it!
Scott Lylander via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/19/21
This podcast is like a good book that I don’t want to end. Thank you Carvell for the wonderful insight into an amazing human being!
KA Cole via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/25/21
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...Read full review »

I love this show. Every episode brings a tear to my eye and reminds me about the goodness in the world.
Snochik via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/21
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...Read full review »

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.

Thank you for this thoughtful and moving show.
The Zoop via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/19/21
The insight into Mr.Rogers’ life and his vision is inspiring and full of the joy of life. Mr.Wallace (the host) has carefully curated these episodes to help remind us all of the impact we have on one another, the grace that is found in seeing one another, and how important it is for us all to...Read full review »

I love Mister Rogers and I can’t get enough of this podcast. Incredibly done

Quit recommending me this trash.
Bochettesnot via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/11/21
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...Read full review »

If you have any interest in Mr Rogers, you should check out this podcast. It brings me a lot of joy, it makes me think, and it is done so well...I highly recommend it. Carvell Wallace and his guests have some wonderful discussions. I will listen to this podcast in its entirety over and over. 10...Read full review »

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...Read full review »
Frank E. Pooh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/02/21
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.
Rosavola via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/21
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...Read full review »
kfreview via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/21
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...Read full review »

Was expecting a biographical mini series about the life of Fred Rogers. The podcast delivers that up to a point, but too often feels like a maudlin, saccharine obituary.

The family of Kamala Harris owned slaves.
Freddie bag of donuts via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/23/21
This podcast is so timely and important right now. I have listened to it and taken notes and listened to it again...It’s just that good and thought provoking. This isn’t about politics, religion or race. It’s about humanity and we should all strive to be better humans every day.
runnerchick566 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/13/21
Mr. Rogers is one of my favorite humans to walk the earth. I was excited to see this podcast as a suggestion. While the concept is great, the opinions were not.
Biblio Babe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/12/21
I didn’t grow up watching his show. My siblings and I were always outside. Listening to this podcast has made me feel that I truly missed out. I found this podcast when I was in a dark place and feeling like I was losing in the parenting department. Listening to this podcast inspired me to...Read full review »

I was totally on board through the intro. ALL of it. I really feel this podcast is important, and important to me. When you use the platform to spew hate towards anyone, even our President, then this is a no go for me. You are using this for something in opposition to what I can here for. This is...Read full review »

Listen to this every morning while drinking coffee. It’s amazing. Mr. Rogers was apart of my childhood and loved learning more about him and the person he was off camera. Listen everyone !
Carebear1275 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/31/20
A great podcast series for everyone, and helpful to me as I navigate working with young children with special needs. Mr Rogers, all those on his show, and the host and contributors of this pod are definitely helpers. Thank you for your wisdom.
