Financial Therapy Series (May 2020)

By SDSSTL - May 27 2020
Read more
I’ve found the “Financial Therapy” episodes with the other host (Amanda) really boring. Focusing on one person’s financial issues for 30 minutes is just dry. I’d rather they skip these altogether and bring us actual DSM episodes.

Maybe it’s me, Maybe it’s not

By R.E.D.30 - May 14 2020
Read more
I used to love this podcast. Anna is such a tremendous interviewer, but in the past year, I’ve found the conversations a lot less compelling. I also enjoyed the complexity of stories brought forward and how the team kept the interpretation open to the listener. I am disappointed that in recent episodes, that “judgement-free” presentation of people’s lives is gone. I don’t enjoy listening to a storyteller who assumes our values are always the same, and then tailors the show to that assumption. It limits the experience.
