Our podcast is about 2 lifelong friends, who are also widows, and how we are maneuvering through all the challenges that come along with our new, unwanted lifestyle. From the untimely deaths of our husbands to online dating and “getting back out there,” we will talk about it all and hopefully give our audience some insight into widowhood and some laughs along the way.
