After going through her own divorce, comedian, actress and author Samantha Baines started The Divorce Social podcast talking to a different guest each week about their break up experience.  

Stacey, a writer, mother of two, and academic in her ‘previous’ life, shares how seeing your partner diagnosed feels and Sam and Steph talk about losing yourself in a relationship, and the ‘phases’ after a marriage ends. Sam gives some excellent advice on how to support a friend (and what not to say) and some thoughts on not seeing the relationship as all just a horrible mistake. Also, everyone should apparently spend a week with Channing Tatum to get through a divorce. Righto, we’re in.
