    Why Must Widowhood Be So Difficult?

    In almost every part of the world, in some form or fashion, widows have things harder than they did when their spouses were alive. In some places it means they pay higher taxes, in others it means they’re ostracized to live on the margins of society.

    The peace sign is one of the most globally recognized symbols around today, but it’s only a few decades old. And it wasn’t the hippies who created it, it was a group of Brits dedicated to nuclear disarmament in the 50s.

    Coercive Control, the Invisible Basis of Abuse

    When we think of an abused spouse we tend to think of horrific physical or emotional violence. But over the last decade or so, it’s become clear that’s only a symptom – that domestic abuse is in fact an all-consuming form of interpersonal terrorism.

MERTX ,

Very interesting.....

Who knew?? I found these podcasts to be very interesting and informative. It's refreshing to know that there are people out there who care enough to inform us of interesting facts that fuel our brains rather than the typical trash that floods us daily. Does anybody really care which celebrity went into rehab this week? This makes for much more interesting conversation around the "water cooler". Not to mention that it makes you sound smart :) Keep up the good work!

a random kid 😀 ,

Great show! I’ve been listening since I was 7!

I love this show so much, and Josh and Chuck are nice. I like that they take the time to research random things like Korean fans or squirrels. I could listen for hours.

Southwest Airlines acquired AirTran in 2011 not Delta :)
