    The Truth About Meshel Laurie

    The Truth About Meshel Laurie

    This is such a special episode. Comedian, media personality, and fellow podcaster Meshel Laurie joins me and we get real deep into her personal life. From her relationship with her father to how she deals with trauma to raising her kids. You probably haven't seen this side of Meshel and I'm so glad she shared it with me.

    Gender Disappointment

    Gender Disappointment

    Jordana longed for a baby girl, but instead she was blessed with three boys in a row. To some it may be trivial but to others gender disappointment is heart-breaking. The grief of the loss of the child you had imagined, and the guilt that follows is what we discuss openly today.

    Grief And Intimacy

    Grief And Intimacy

    We deal with a lot of grief on the podcast and I think we have all been through it in some way. Today I really wanted to explore intimacy during, and after grief. It's not something that a lot of people talk about so I'm starting the conversation now. I'm navigating all of this with Rachel from LBDO. She is an expert in sexual wellness and has also had her own experience with grief.

    The Murderer

    The Murderer

    A guest I have wanted to have on The Deep for a long time is a convicted murderer. The episode is not quite what I expected, in the best way. Paul spent 10 years in jail for committing murder. But he says being caught was the best thing that could have happened as he has turned his life around despite admitting to taking a person's life unnecessarily.

    The Gambling Addict's Wife

    The Gambling Addict's Wife

    Last week we spoke to Elliott. It was actually his wife who reached out to us about his story and I feel it's really important to share both sides of this one. Tamara shares what it has been like living with a gambling addict for so long, hoping things would change.

    The Gambling Addict

    The Gambling Addict

    Today we speak to a gambling addict. Elliott was introduced to sports betting at an impressionable age and became a full blown addict for 10 years. As someone who doesn't fully understand the pull of gambling, I really wanted to know where the high comes from and what makes them keep going back. Elliott was really candid with me and shared things he's never spoken about before.
    Content warning: This episode discusses gambling addiction and suicide.

Great podcast. Please change the intro message

Great podcast and great topics but the intro message is sooo slow and annoying. The first episode I listened to was the Port Arthur episode which was fascinating but the host asked questions that sounded like she hadn’t researched the event before hand. It could have been the host trying to get the guest to open up but it came across a bit disrespectful.

Happiest subscriber ever

As a Deeper subscriber I LOVE opening my podcast app and seeing a new episode with Zoe and The Deep pop up. Zoe is an incredible interviewer and podcast host, she is thoughtful, real and raw and it feels like she really gets the absolute best out of her guests. I am obsessed with this podcast and tell everyone and anyone I cross paths with all about it!
