    Give up the ghost. The reason they ghosted you is...

    In this episode, Doug and Dr Talia respond to two mailbags, both from people that explain why they have ghosted someone they cared about. And once you get inside the minds of the ghoster, you will see why they are disappearing, even if you could have sworn there was a connection and chemistry. Why oh why didn’t they just tell you the truth? It will all make sense, tune in!

    Your friend hurt you, is your friendship salvageable or do you need to move on?

    Your friend hurt you, is your friendship salvageable or do you need to move on?

    In this episode, Dr Talia and Doug talk to Minneapolis based, friendship-focused writer and podcaster, Nina Badzin. Your friend hurt you badly. Until now you have never needed to have a difficult conversation about your friendship, but if you don’t, the friendship won’t survive. What do you do? To determine whether your friendship is salvageable, think about these three things. How meaningful is this relationship to you, was the deep cut a sign of the person’s character or an off day, and how are they responding to you sharing your hurt? Romantic relationship betrayals are more obvious, and so are the dealbreakers. But when you can have many friends and don’t have to choose only one, we want to help you determine whether this friendship will continue to elevate your life or continue to hurt you. We know you have all experienced a painful rift in a friendship, let us help you navigate!

    My late wife’s sister tried sleeping with me...

    My late wife’s sister tried sleeping with me...

    In this episode Dr Talia and Doug look at two very relatable issues. In the first mailbag, a young father grieves his wife while his wife’s sister, who has been the greatest supporter to him and his kids, tried to sleep with him a month after his wife’s passing. And he hates the way he reacted. And in the second mailbag, a young man says he’s incredibly uncomfortable with the way his girlfriend presents herself on social media; bikini pictures that give thirsty and single. Can we help them address these delicate issues? Of course we can!

    Mailbag episode! “I gave myself a total makeover with zero results in the dating department.”

    Mailbag episode! “I gave myself a total makeover with zero results in the dating department.”

    In this episode, Doug and Dr. Talia tackle two heartfelt mailbags. In the first letter, a gentleman who has had no luck with women feels he did everything he could to revamp his look; fitness, wardrobe and haircut, check… but is still having no luck in the dating department. All of his friends tell him he just hasn’t met the right person but he is losing hope fast that he is anyone’s type. In the second mailbag, a young mother is struggling with resentment and anger towards her fiancé for wanting to help his sons’ mother financially. Is she being unreasonable?

    Not the Man I Used to Be; Getting to Know Yourself Again After a Brain Aneurism with Guest Andrew Davie

    Not the Man I Used to Be; Getting to Know Yourself Again After a Brain Aneurism with Guest Andrew Davie

    In this episode, Doug and Dr Talia talk to Andrew Davie, a true Renaissance man. He is an author of crime fiction novellas, short stories and memoirs about dating, managing OCD and recovering from his brain aneurysm. He is also a fellow podcaster as the cohost of happy hour with Heather. Join us for this fascinating conversation as Andrew shares his experience of surviving a ruptured brain aneurysm and subarachnoid hemorrhage in 2018. He was trying so hard to get back to himself and the future on which he needed to press pause that it took him quite some time to realize who he was post aneurysm, and that what he now wanted for his life was completely different.

    Loneliness is the Silent Killer and the here is the Antidote; LIVE episode with guest Anna Bonavita

    Loneliness is the Silent Killer and the here is the Antidote; LIVE episode with guest Anna Bonavita

    Loneliness is a global health crisis. In this episode Dr Talia and Doug have a moving conversation with Anna Bonavita, a former physicist with a passion for culture, cuisine, and the natural environment. While grieving her beloved husband, and in the depths of loneliness and despair, she found comfort and community at a communal table in Italy and has brought this healing opportunity to one of the loneliest cities in the US. Listen to her story.
    Born in a small Bulgarian village, educated in Russia, and a long-time resident of both Italy and the United States, she claims several countries as the source of her cultural identity. Bonavita is the founder and former president of the Italian Cultural Center as well as the Italian Film Festival of Minneapolis/St. Paul.

    In 2018 she started Esperienza, an organization which celebrates and preserves culture in small Italian villages and towns through authentic immersion opportunities. She believes that away from the fast speed and superficiality of mass tourism, we can still unhurriedly appreciate the pleasures of the palate and the joy of Italian culture while giving back to local economies.

    Her latest creation, the Communal Table, was recently featured in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, is a place where social connection is always possible amidst honest food, good company, and local creative talents.

    Enjoy this touching conversation, WNF family, and you can find her here:
