This program was recorded at The Divorce Expo in March, 2012, and features Singer/Songwriter, Terry Radigan.  Radigan debuted her first solo record, Radigan, which was released in 2000, and was praised by the likes of Billboard, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, and Mademoiselle, among others. Since then, Radigan has had her songs recorded by powerhouses, Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood, Pam Tillis, Patty Loveless, Anuna, City High, Vinyl Pinups, and many more.

Fast forward to 2012, and you’ll find Radigan's latest album, The Breakdown of a BreakupThe album is a candid story of the breakup of a twenty-year relationship; sorrow, anger, wilderness, and the final phase of empowerment and moving on.

Terry shares her personal breakup story and tells how writing her new album was a form of therapy.  (The good news is, writers write some of their biggest hits during a breakup, and this album is awesome!)  And if you find yourself going through divorce, you'll totally relate to her songs.

In this podcast, we feature two songs from Terry's new album, Love Wouldn't Lie To Me  and Not Giving Up On Love.  For more on Terry and her music, visit: www.TerryRadigan.com.

On this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., Dr. James Hollis joins us and provides insight into our lives and relationships.

James Hollis, Ph.D., taught Humanities for 26 years in various colleges and universities before retraining as a Jungian analyst at the Jung Institute of Zurich, Switzerland.  He is a licensed Jungian analyst in private practice, in Houston, Texas, where he is also Executive Director of the Jung Educational Center of Houston. Dr. Hollis has published eleven books with total sales well over 100,000 copies, the most recent being Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life (Gotham Books/Penguin).

What is your life's purpose, and does it have  meaning?  What happens when we get off purpose?  Dr. Hollis helps us understand how we can be our worst enemy.  Much of our current unrest can be attributed to our experiences as children and young adults.  The paradox is that the adaptations that were necessary during childhood  often stand as the imprisoning behaviors and values later in life.

Have you ever asked yourself the question, "If I'm doing all the right things, why doesn't it feel right inside?"  How do we inherit our past, and how is it affecting our current life?  These questions, as well as thoughts on marriage and relationships, are discussed in this episode.

Getting over divorce and the emotional feelings that go along with it isn't easy.  In this episode of Sex after Divorce with Juliana Neiman, we take a look at emotional obstacles that might prevent us from moving forward into healthy sexual relationships.

Some may enter into a new relationship only to find themselves still harboring feelings of low self-esteem and fear that their new relationship will go the same path as their last one.  By confronting our emotional issues up front and gaining a better understanding of ourselves, our fears and negative feelings fade away.

Juliana also addresses sexual emotions and fears that cause some people to feel insecure about becoming sexually involved with a new partner, and we discuss how to feel more comfortable with our own sexuality.

So how are you feeling post divorce?  How's your energy, weight or mood?  If you're feeling in a funk, it may be more than just your divorce, it could be a hormone imbalance.

As we age, both men and women's hormone levels change.  This can result in depression, weight loss/gain, and reduced mental acuity. The loss of healthy hormone levels in women account for their menopause and the reduction of male hormones can cause andropause in men.  Women don't have to suffer through menopause and men don't have to suffer depression and erectile dysfunction.

Balanced hormone levels in couples can equal a closer, loving  bond, and in this episode of Single Again! Now What?, world renowned anti aging physician, Dr. Edward Lichten, joins the show to tell us why.

Joanie, Lesley and Steve talk to Dr. Lichten about:

  • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
  • The health benefits of healthy hormone levels
  • The ill effects of declining hormone levels
  • How hormones can increase your sex drive
  • The risks of HRT
  • Our toxic environment
  • And more.

In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., we discuss Trauma.  Most of us has heard of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a severe form of trauma.  This is triggered by a severe event such a car accident, or the trauma of a battlefield.

We're going to discuss the most common form, Complex Trauma, and see how it can creep into our relationships.  Complex trauma can occur as a result of domestic violence or from suffering a trauma at an early age and now in adulthood, issues trigger past trauma. So the question is, have you been traumatized and if so, is there treatment available?

Once you recognize your triggers you can begin the process of detoxifying the trauma.  Dr. Banschick believes that traumas can be treated with much success and offers hope for a peaceful future.

On this episode of Single Again! Now What?, Joanie, Lesley and Steve discuss internet dating.  The trio talk about their experiences and thoughts about this popular dating trend for the single again crowd.

Is dating after divorce different for men than women?  How do you go from meeting on a dating site to meeting in person?  Is face-to-face Skyping a better way to find a love interest?  We cover it all and much more.  We also touch on the topic of loneliness after divorce, and, as usual, we do it with plenty of laughs.  We also give a shout out to our friends listening in Singapore.  (We love Singapore!)

The program includes a visit from Cindy Sample, author of Dying for a Date and the sequel, Dying for a Dance.  Her books are receiving rave reviews.  Author Linda Lovely raves:  "In Cindy Sample's newest humor-packed mystery, the author packages her whodunit puzzle in the glittering wrapper of ballroom dance competition.  With pacing as energetic as a mambo, Dying for a Dance will have readers turning pages to see if the feisty single mom can calm a Bridezilla gal pal, squeeze in lip locks with a hunky detective, save her bank and her job, and figure out who is murdering dance instructors. Laughs abound along with ample thrills. When this dance ends, you'll applaud."
