Caring compassionate podcast with thoughtful host
Let the guests speak
The host is so hell bent on sharing all of her own issues that the guests get very little opportunity to speak. What is the purpose of this podcast — to allow the host to vent and brag about all of her own personal breakthroughs or to share information from expert guests to enable LISTENERS to heal and grow? Listeners are here to learn how to heal from toxic, narcissistic relationships, not to listen to a host highjack every topic to make it about her self-centered, narcissistic self.
