Episode 028: Crazy Dates, Cops, & A Book with special guest Robert James My very favorite podcast. Fun and entertaining. Robert James goes back into the dating world after 20 some years of married life. He found out it had changed big time. In the process, a friend suggested he change his wardrobe and maybe even his hair style. He did update his wardrobe,but the hair style has stayed. Online dating was his choice — first just emails, then phone conversations and then the dates. His assistant at work would always inquire about how the dates worked out for him. After hearing how different the dates were she suggested he keep a journal. So he did. Who knew this would inspire Robert to write a book?! He self-published his work. His son suggested he open a Twitter account and post excerpts from his book. He now has over 35,000 followers. His book “Next! The Search For My Last First Date” has drawn attention from a Hollywood screenwriter with the possibility of being made into a movie. Robert shared various date stories about the strange things these woman did. They were so funny and unbelievable. I was totally entertained. It was such fun to listen to. I

Episode 027: What’s your divorce plan with Leanne Linsky & The Boyfriend I did listen to today  podcast and found it a worthwhile topic. So many of us have at one time or another thought about this either for ourselves, friends, or even family members. A couple’s state of mind can vary due to their circumstances. It can be very emotional, hateful, or spiteful. It can still be quite the undertaking in even the best cases. Your reminding listeners about state law is so important. Sharing the cost also is also important. Couples should undo their assets fairly and in a timely fashion along with deciding who takes what. Dealing with the children and pets are probably the hardest, as there are many emotions to deal with. Divorce has to be the most difficult and heart wrenching thing a couple can go through. Great advice today. Love your podcast. Each week Mom-nonymous shares her thoughts on the episode. Mom-nonymous is a wife, mom, and listener of Life Lafter Divorce Podcast. She’s been married for over 50 years, has never been divorced, and would like to remain anonymous.

Episode 001: Communication Breakdown (and divorce) with special guest Jim Barnes Jim Barnes, stand up comedian, host of Jim Barnes and Friends and The Sunday Night Mic at Flappers Comedy Club in Claremont, CA joins us to share his relationship experiences. Our first episode and we’re going to talk about…communication. We communicate every day to our friends, family, co-workers, strangers, everyone. It’s how we navigate our way in this crazy world. So why is it so difficult when we’re in a relationship? The Boyfriend and Leanne agree that direct communication is crucial for any relationship to survive. Hoping someone reads your mind or picks up your subtle cues just doesn’t work no matter how many times we try. Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don’t say it mean. It seems easy enough, but it’s amazing how many times we don’t do it. What’s holding us back from being open and honest with the one we care about most? Maybe it’s fear. Maybe it’s just not knowing any better. Either way, like any good habit, it takes practice. Then there is the other side of it. Listening, and really hearing someone -not just what we want to hear. What is the tone? What is

Leanne Linsky is a two-time divorcee who decided to take the two things she knows well – comedy and divorce – and marry them into a business . After her second divorce, she remembers lying on her bedroom floor in the fetal position thinking, “I’m not going to let this make me into a bitter old woman with nine cats. I want to make this into the best thing that ever happened.” And so she did. Leanne began saying yes to new opportunities every chance she could. A co-worker suggested she take an improv class and she did. That was it for her. Leanne was hooked. Improv gave her a healthy outlet and, as a result, taught her how to improve her communications skills, gave her a new perspective,
