Kandlluv ,

💗

Absolutely love love love this podcast! It has gotten me through some of the toughest moments! I binged through them all and can't hardly wait for the new episodes each week it's like torture to have to wait on them! Thank you 💗

MeghanSiobhan ,

I’m not alone!!

I got divorced a year ago (at 29) and even through therapy and everything I kept wondering if I was doing it right. Was I being too sexually liberal? Was I dwelling? How do I move on? I heard Samantha on the Guilty Feminist podcast and knew I had to listen. One episode in and I wish I had found it sooner haha. I will now binge the whole thing and start feeling better about myself and this whole situation. Thank you, Samantha!!!

heartbreaking and real ,

Love it!

Sarah m. Is always so wonderful to listen to. I hope future eps are similar in vibe, though I’m excited to hear all the different types of divorces, since I think it’s usually a lot more messy.
