    Hosted by Meredith Shirey & Isaiah Vallejo-Juste
    Produced by The Bored Brand
    In this episode we chat with mediator Joy Rosenthal about her role as an objective third party helping couples through contentious situations. She surmises that her role is to keep the parties together as much as possible especially in a court judicial system that is not set up for people to voice their fears, and work through conflict. She discusses how the adversarial system built for business isn't what's best for the whole family.

    Episode 11 | Infidelity
    Hosted by Meredith Shirey & Isaiah Vallejo-Juste
    Produced by The Bored Brand
    While it may seem like the definition of infidelity is clear-cut and unwavering, the concept of infidelity has significantly shifted over the decades and centuries. Where proof of sexual impropriety once served as the sole and clear intent of unfaithfulness in conventional marriages, the onset of love matching in modern day marital relations has blurred the lines for what constitutes indiscretion. We unpack why that is, and what to do about it.
