742: The Thing I'm Getting Over
What’s recovery mean, anyway?
436: The Psychopath Test
We heard about a test that could determine if someone was a psychopath. So, naturally, our staff decided to take it.
741: The Weight of Words
Words mean things, but some words are especially meaningful.
740: There. I Fixed It.
Solving problems using very extreme measures.
Sisters build worlds together, worlds that are just for them. Stories about the bonds between sisters and how they get broken and fixed—or not.
738: Good Grief!
So many of us, we don’t want to think about death. We avoid grieving when we lose someone, distract ourselves, look away. In this episode, at a moment when so many families are mourning, we have stories of people figuring out how they’ll grieve, and doing a pretty good job of it.
By far my favorite podcast. I would greatly appreciate no more staff stories. Let’s do some investigation, get out of the office, and get stories from all perspectives.
Very creative and interesting
Great podcast. Very entertaining stories. Always thought provoking. This and blue collar hour podcast are my favorites.
Not what it used to be.
