Intimate, sustaining and definitely not outrageous

It appears that the negative review left for this series has, in my opinion, missed the point, and is actually offering an emotional response and not a clear headed one.

This is absolutely worlds apart from being another ‘jerry springer show’. It is in fact the opposite: an intimate collection of experiences that identify some of the multi-faceted struggles that any human can relate to in one way or another. It is not pop corn drama, it is a set of raw emotional experiences presented in an honest way that allows others to learn from these people’s own journeys - just look at all the positive reviews, and probably had equal worth for the couples themselves knowing they were offering their experiences to be learnt from.

The ‘pop corn drama’ of todays TV is an aggressively diluted and disfigured version of stories, which at their true form are core to humans as a way of expression and sharing mistakes. This podcast series is a reflection of the emotional themes that exist at the heart of stories that have been told for thousands of years about human love, loss and confusion, and the more people that listen to it the better, as it offers tangible, relateable insight into the complex mess of emotions, choices and behaviour that end up tormenting people's relationships.

There is much to be learned here and it is offered in a natural, intimate way that is rarely available these days.

wasnt aware of the podcast until yesterday and as a fan of Mrs Perel, I was very curious to check it out. i was very disappointed to realised it is just another jerry springer show, turning the every day into reality tv where people's experience and pain becomes pop corn worth drama. Sure, with their consent, but how much of their words are affected by 'performance'? what does that do to their 'therapy'? and what does that mean about such private experiences getting exposed? what is this normalising? does every part of the human existence need to be exposed to the masses for consumption in any imaginable way possible? if people want to be educated about extra marital affairs, they can read a book, have therapy, go train as a therapist, have conversations. who is this benefiting? and why is it a good idea?
