    S2 EP31: Amanda's Story - Persevering Through Five Miscarriages

    We have had a lot of brave guests on the show, and it really does take a lot for people to share their extremely personal stories sometimes. That's surely true in the case of Amanda Rush, who went through years and years of pain and turmoil trying to have a baby with her childhood sweetheart and husband. No less than five miscarriages later, they started to believe it would never happen for them, but they never giving up hope. Moving onto IVF and working with a specialist, doing tests and checks and more tests, it finally happened! This story is about the strength to carry on when all hope is lost. Its an emotional rollercoaster and we thank Amanda once again for her strength, courage, and very happy persona!

    S2 EP30: Kristel's Story - BONUS After Thoughts

    Wow, what an episode this was. Luke and Kyle unpack Kristel Tuul's episode in which she discussed working for a company who were falsely mixed up in a sex trafficking scandal! This episode was so much more than just this story, it was about resilience, courage, self esteem and staying above water against the roughest of tides. We don't think we could have done what Kristel did, maybe it would have been easier to quit and run away! We commend your fight, wisdom and strength Kristel!

    In this after thoughts section, Luke and Kyle discuss what it must be like to be faced with potential homelessness. We have spoken to other guests on the show and heard people discuss how quickly it can happen.  No back up money is common in this expensive world we live in, and in Denise's case, to lose a job after nearly two decades, and find your self with the prospect of being on the street, is just terrifying! As with all our episodes we focus on the positive, and commend and celebrate Denise for getting herself out of her desperate predicament. Feel free to email us at wtfmupodcast@gmail.com

    S2 EP29: Denise's Story - From High-Flyer To Welfare (With 4 Kids)

    S2 EP29: Denise's Story - From High-Flyer To Welfare (With 4 Kids)

    Life is so fragile, and things can turn 180 in the blink of an eye.. Denise Wester went from living in comfort and security, to no job, welfare and at one stage no electricity and on the brink of homelessness with her 4 x young kids. Denise grew up in a strict religious home, and her upbringing had negative effects on her self esteem and subsequent relationships. Our lives can be scattered with wrong turns and sometimes we don't know we have taken them until it's seemingly too late. Denise shows us however, that it is never too late to find your passion, freedom, and confidence as she talks us through how journaling saved her life.

More power!

So fortunate to talk to Luke and Kyle. They are very genuine and engaging. We truly had a powerful conversation, sharing hard and vulnerable experiences that are relatable with everyone. These two are very compassionate as they shed light on what people deal with in their lives. Also loved that they give a BONUS After Thoughts episode which they reflect and share their thoughts about our topic. More power to your show!
