I’m Tired of Ruminating on Regrets

Rafer and Kristen advise one listener who’s looking back on their life with regrets, and another whose husband lost his job. And for their What Should I Watch Next segment, they try to help a listener who feels she’s exhausted everything on the Hallmark Channel. Need some Movie Therapy of your own?

Our little indie show is something we pay for out of our own pockets. We've been fortunate to have a couple advertisers (yes!), but in order to get more, we need to learn a little more about you.
