Finally, they answer a pair of Triggered submissions about a noisy cat and a poorly-timed pregnancy announcement.

Obsessed is an understatement!

This podcast is exactly what I was looking for. J & Dr. N provide great and thoughtful insight while keeping it light and funny. Their dynamic is refreshing. My only complaint is that it only comes out once a week!

Episode from 3/21/23, pet loss

This podcast is a saving grace. Thank you Dr. Naomi for the validation of pet loss. To the listener who is processing the loss of their pet, I’m going thru this right now. My dog of 14 years died a month ago. When they read your email, it was as though I had written it myself. I have cried every single day since my dog died. Some days it’s small tears and other days it’s enough to fill an ocean. However, the intention that they gave is so helpful. Let your grief happen—quite literally, let it out of your body. Sob when you need to. Grief is (just) love that is trapped inside of you. Some days it gets too big and need to be released. So cry. Cry a lot. And please remember that you’re not alone in this devastation, I’m going thru it too.

Dr. Naomi and Jordana are amazing hosts!

I love this podcast so much. Dr. Naomi has such a calming presence and makes big problems easier to manage. Jordana also adds great commentary to the emails they answer and I love her perspective (especially on anything relationship/marriage related). I loved it when Jared joined as a guest, would love to see him be a regular guest :)

Jordana and Dr. Naomi are phenomenal hosts and I look forward to a new episode every week! I love everything that Betches puts out, keep up the good work 💯
