About Us

“My dating life MUST be part of God’s cosmic gag reel.” Putting a comedic (and real life) spin on the title, Melyssa Ford’s new podcast reflects the difficulties she, and most women, experience in their dating lives. Wanting to expand the conversation to include topics that relate to ‘Today’s Everywoman”, she is joined by various cohosts where they will share their thoughts, opinions and experiences on trending topics in a long form discussion. So grab a glass of wine, take off your bra and get comfy because these ladies are diving head first into some deep sh*t and unpacking some heavy baggage.

Saying Goodbye... For Now

Self Love is the Best Love ft. Mercedes Coffman

EWe are living in strange times these days. Sheltering in Place, forced to quarantine while watching a constant news cycle of a rising death toll due to a virus we are receiving so much conflicting information on. Our “fight or flight” instinct we all have is on high alert. With so much to worry about I ask you this: How much time are YOU devoting to caring for YOURSELF? It’s a natural instinct to want to help others, love others but sometimes to your own detriment. My guest on this episode is Mercedes Coffman, psychotherapist and Licensed Marriage and Family therapist. May is National Mental Health Awareness Month so I couldn’t think of a better time tounpack this loaded subject with an additional discussion about love and the development of healthy relationships.
