Love this! I feel seen
This podcast is really helping me through my husbands first deployment. Listening to this podcast is very cathartic because you say all the things that I’m feeling! Thank you for doing this
I kind of can’t believe how basic and vapid and just air headed this podcast is. I listened to a couple of episodes to give it an honest try, but after listening to the silver linings episode I had to share for others to know what they’re getting in to. At one point she says she loves that her kids get to move because it teaches them diversity, going on to say how happy she is that her daughter learned that “racism doesn’t exist anymore” at her new school. Just....what? Is that a joke? Look around at what’s been going on. She also mentions how grateful she is to get the chance to redecorate and clear out all the junk every three years as if that’s unique to her experience as a military spouse? Idk just overall I found myself muttering “are you joking” aloud several times while listening. If these are the few bright sides she can muster up to being a military spouse she has bent over backwards to try to make the most out of the situation. Which is great for her.
Eye opening to learning about what a day and life is like for a military spouse! Wow!
