I absolutely love this show. Really thought provoking, because you reflect on your own break up experiences while listening to these diverse stories.
I was not sure about this series at first, but it has proved to be compelling listening. In each story, there are elements that you can identify in yourself and in your own breakups. You get the feeling when listening that you have got to the heart of the matter (excuse the pun) but perhaps that you, the listener, are also only scratching the surface of the story...which keeps me tuning in for the next episode. In my view, this is what makes a great podcast for the listener, but surely also makes Julien a great counsellor for the interviewee. And his accent doesn't hurt either! Check it out.
These podcasts are very interesting and thought-provoking. despite talking about heartache, they are uplifiting as they leave you wth a sense of hope that things will get better - guaranteed to get you through some tough times!
