    Sarah's Take on the Ashley Madison Netflix Documentary

    Sarah's Take on the Ashley Madison Netflix Documentary

    Following up from last week's episode, Sarah weighs in on her observations (and revulsions) on the Ashley Madison Neflix series. Is it possible this many serial cheaters exist? Does that guy in the pink flamingo shirt sunning himself by the poolside have any conscience? Is Noel Biderman's wife a chump or an accomplice? It's a deep vein of snark and commentary.

    What the Ashley Madison Netflix Document Gets Wrong

    What the Ashley Madison Netflix Document Gets Wrong

    The new Netflix docuseries on the Ashley Madison hack purports to look at the complexities around infidelity. Instead, it's the same old message about reconciliaton and not judging cheaters for their sexuality. Deception -- as experienced by chumps, not Noel Biderman -- is left out of the discussion. Tracy Schorn, aka Chump Lady, riffs on the characters and missed opportunities to have a fuller conversation.

    What Did They Do For the Affair Partner That They Didn't Do for You?

    What Did They Do For the Affair Partner That They Didn't Do for You?

    In this episode we discuss how cheaters devalue their partners while simulataneously love bombing their affair partners. Listeners share stories of what their cheaters did for Schmoopies, but not them or their children. From little gestures like cooking dinner or holding hands, to outrageous injustices like stiffing your kids thousands in back child support while paying for private school for the new family -- it's an exercise in trust that they suck.

I love this podcast!

Thank you for portraying cheating as it is and not trying to make excuses for bad character. Your book was amazing and so helpful to me in a time of need and your podcast has further helped me move forward.

Amazing Podcast for Chumps!

It’s a club none of us want to be in, but yet here we are. The support from the podcast and Chump Nation has truly saved my life! Listening to these podcasts gets me through another week of realizing my FW is just that an FW and I am on this roller coast for life thanks to him. But thanks to Tracy and Sarah, I don’t have to ride alone! Thank you!!!
