Podcasts to Listen to Before, During, and After Divorce

A divorce is more than just the legal process of ending a marriage. It’s a profound emotional loss that can take you down a dark path and leave you feeling lost, alone, and scared. 

The loss isn’t just the loss of a partner; it’s also the loss of the life you knew, the dreams you shared, the person you were, and the life you lived. You may feel sad, angry, and fearful for the future. You may feel desperately alone. 

Suggested: What Are the Emotional Stages of Divorce?

In reality, you’re anything but alone. In fact, in 2020, 630,000 couples divorced in the United States alone. Your company is excellent! And if you can find a way to feel connected to others in the same boat, you might even enjoy that company.

Podcasts about divorce offer a unique connection that feels both intimate and accessible. Many divorce podcasts provide not only a sense of community but also expert insights to get you through these challenging times with some powerful information and even a little bit of laughter. 

Feel less alone with podcasts about divorce

Feeling connected to and getting perspective from others who have gone through similar issues can boost your mental health and well-being while helping you feel less isolated and alone.

During a break-up, friends and family might be giving you support and love. If so, that’s awesome … but there is only so much support they can provide

Fortunately, numerous podcasts focusing on divorce and relationships are available to help you feel connected and supported.

Considerations and cautions

While podcasts offer some great information, resources, and strategies regarding legal, financial, and mental health issues during divorce, remember that these are only generalities and can’t replace more personalized advice. 

Podcasters and their guests offer many of their own views and opinions, and any information provided in a podcast is for general informational purposes only. Every situation is different, and information shared on a podcast should never be a substitute for professional advice, no matter how qualified that podcaster is. Before making any decisions, get professional advice tailored to your situation.
