Discovering Our Scars Podcast is all about one thing: honest conversations. Steph and Beth talk about things that make most people uncomfortable (religion, mental illness, sexual abuse, and more). Steph and Beth became friends when they poured their hearts out in a 12-Step recovery small group. Neither was dealing with addiction—but both had hurts, habits, and hang-ups they needed to address. Steph’s journey is detailed in her book, Discovering My Scars, and that’s the inspiration for the podcast. While the podcast is inspired by Steph’s book, the hosts expand on subjects that make each person unique. The mission of the podcast is to help people embrace the “embarrassing” parts of their lives and learn to love and value all of themselves. On the podcast, the hosts share their own experiences and invite guests to broaden the conversation by contributing their own wisdom. As in Steph’s book, the podcast does not “tell you what to do,” rather, it has the ability to inspire people through the hosts’ honest and heartfelt approach.Podcast website: dospod.us

Fun and Real

I have known Beth for over 20 years and it is fun to hear her process life and tough questions with Steph who I don’t know. I love that they don’t always agree and that it isn’t about agreement at all but just taking things through together.

Real and Honest. Finally!

Started listening with the first episode this morning and unexpectedly binged the rest. Wishing there were more! It's that good! I find it very relatable and honest, which is refreshing in this world where deep conversations are few and far between. Thanks to these two ladies for being vulnerable, honest and absolutely courageous in sharing their scars and how they're learning to process life, live with those scars, and lift others with their experiences. ♥️

Discovering Our Scars

Just found this podcast and have listened to all three first episodes. As a fan of Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations, I appreciate the honesty and authenticity Beth and Steph bring to their conversations. They are very relatable and will become a regular part of my quest for a more present and purposeful life!
