Nooshmoo ,

What a complete tonic !

This podcast has literally been a life saver and totally reframed the way I look at my impending divorce . Although I instigated it - it’s terribly sad but dare I say (!) the people interviewed on this have made me feel 1. I am not alone and everything I had been feeling is normal and 2. rather than be the end of something sad and crap it’s actually the start of the something so hopeful and exciting. The host Samantha is in equal parts funny and compassionate - she’s bloody brilliant!
Who knew in the middle of a divorce I would be really enjoying a podcast about it , let alone looking forward to the next download . Roll on the decree absolooooo! ( obvs said in a French accent!) x
