    Listen Now: The Letter Season Two

    Listen Now: The Letter Season Two

    The hit true-crime podcast The Letter is back for Season Two. Today, we’re dropping into your feed to offer you a sneak peek of this gripping and impactful story. 

    On a winter morning in 1982, two young fathers were found shot to death in a van parked outside an upscale Utah restaurant.The killer soon confessed, but his story about what happened - and why he chose violence - would create more pain, conflict, and questions for the families left in the wake of the murders.

    As the families of the men struggle to rebuild their lives, they face questions they never anticipated. Does everyone deserve a second chance? Who is forgiveness for? And if you can inherit trauma, can you also inherit forgiveness? Through their stories, we discover even the most personal decisions can unintentionally ripple through lives, through generations, even impacting the lives of people we’ve never met. From KSL Podcasts (Cold), Lemonada Media (Blind Plea) and WorkHouse Media.

    You’re about to hear a clip from Episode 1, Season Two of The Letter. To hear the rest of the episode, head to https://lemonada.lnk.to/theletterfd or theletterpodcast.com.

    From Bad to Worse: COVID’s Toll on a Top Child Care Center

    From Bad to Worse: COVID’s Toll on a Top Child Care Center

    We are excited to share another Lemonada Media show you will love. It's called No One Is Coming to Save Us and it tackles the American child care crisis. No One Is Coming to Save Us has new episodes out every Thursday.

    Gloria is back and ready to tackle America’s child care crisis head-on. To kick off season 2, she calls up Lauren Cook, CEO of Ellis Early Learning in Boston. We met Lauren back in season 1, where she walked us through the nitty-gritty of how much it costs to operate a child care center. This time around, Lauren tears up as she talks about how nationwide labor shortages are reverberating through the child care system, what she has to do to keep the lights on at Ellis, and how the ongoing pandemic has made a bad situation continue to get worse.

    Listen to This: After 1954

    Listen to This: After 1954

    The team at In Recovery wanted to share with you a preview of another Lemonada Media series that they know you’ll want to tune in for. The 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown vs. Board of Education paved the way for racial integration in public schools. But there's an unspoken consequence of this historic moment. Estimates show 38 thousand Black teachers were fired throughout the integration. This means, the number of Black educators in our public schools dramatically decreased during this time. And that number has never gone back up. This has left a huge void in our public schools. That’s why it’s so important we uplift Black leaders working in education today. After 1954, a new podcast from Lemonada Media hosted by Aimée Eubanks Davis, is out now wherever you get your podcasts.

    Alua Arthur is a death doula, but her work has taught her how to live. She talks about walking away from unfulfilling work, pursuing joy and how to have hope when you're facing the end of life. This week’s practice is about asking yourself: What must I do to be at peace with myself so that I may live presently and die gracefully?

Wish I could recommend recent offerings!

I’m a psychotherapist and, in the earlier offerings of this podcast, I frequently recommended clients tune in and listen up! Sadly, I keep trying to do the same and for reasons I do not understand, I haven’t referred folks for many months, maybe a year. It was excellent while it lasted. Truly, so appreciated. For the body of work that is available, I recommend listening again and again. I imagine there are many important reasons the continuity of programs and offerings has not been possible. I trust the podcasters and producers in their recommendations for other shows.

LoveD the show

Is it ever coming back? Seems like it’s become a vehicle to advertise different shows?

Truly helpful

Dr. Nzinga is one of the most down-to-earth, compassionate and insightful experts in the field of Addiction Medicine and I love listening to her professional wisdom on everything from strategies for overcoming specific substances/behaviors to the best types of family therapy. Her firm but non-judgmental approach to real life situations inspire a sense of hope and direction for those of us who struggle with addiction or are supporting loved ones who do. One of the most practically helpful resources I’ve found online. Keep it up, Doc! I just wish more episodes were actually In Recovery content and not just ads for other Lemonada shows.
