THE STRUGGLE is a weekly podcast hosted by comedian Candice Thompson that explores everyday struggles that she and her guests are currently experiencing. From serious topics like addiction to more frivolous challenges like copious amounts of body hair, we all recognize that being an adult isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Sure, we get to eat gummy bears for dinner whenever we want, but wouldn’t it be great if we didn’t have to worry about next month’s rent, slowing metabolisms and our eggs shriveling up? Yes, my friend, THE STRUGGLE is real and the goal of this show is to make discussing and coping with the obstacles of adulthood a little bit easier. We all got issues...might as well laugh about it.

Love the podcast

Been listening to this podcast for a whole year when she was on JRE podcast. Deftly brings light to the day to day struggles of adulting. I live how the podcast can be funny and serious all at once. Enjoy listening to it every week!

Love Candice

Love the topics and comedic guests. However, what’s fascinating is how the comedy turns serious and focuses on real topics! The contrast is great!
