    Ep 122 Daughters was a tragic story about a woman who lost her three daughters to their father’s side of the family, and our hearts broke for Kay.

Her two oldest, Heidi and Raven, join us today for the first time to share their side of the story and to tell us what it's like living with mom!

    What Was That Like

    What Was That Like

    Surprise appearance! The next episode of the Secret Room isn’t due for a week.  But I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce you to a podcast that I love.  It’s called “What Was That Like?” and just like the Secret Room, guests share intimate, personal stories.

    I know the host, Scott Johnson, and he has true empathy for his guests, giving them wide berth to tell their stories.  I know a lot you already listen to What Was That Like, but I bet many of you haven’t found it yet.   Scott and I are recommending each others podcasts to our audiences, and it’s about time because it’s a perfect match. 

    Hear people share their extreme experiences, first hand, with Scott Johnson on What Was That Like, available on any podcast app or whatwasthatlike.com.

    Today I present one of my favorites, “Danny Found a Baby in the Subway.”  Enjoy!
