What I’ve learned by doing more than fifty My Spouse Died Too podcast episodes. Not all-inclusive, just a taste of what I’ve discovered by talking for hours and hours with courageous widowed guest co-hosts.

You’ll hear my self-accusations, personality quirks, views on life and death.

How I make deeper connections with just about anybody.

How to find gold in a conversation. How to listen better.

And I’ll suggest a resource, if you take simple action, quickly changes your life in a profound way.  And more.
