In this maiden episode, Jade and Sarah talk about the science behind why everything feels so sh*tty after a breakup, and what you can do to make life more bearable. In between, they question if they’re qualified to make a Podcast, but enjoy talking about themselves too much and power on.
Sarah walks you through an activity in the book, F*ck off and die, designed to help you through this tough time. Jade talks about whether ghosting is okay. Sarah is disappointed to discover Jade thinks it is. The pair remain friends.
This episode was dropped on Valentine’s Day, because it’s a stupid day and awesome, single people deserve love too.

- Quote by Marilyn Monroe
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
