Going There with Jen Vertanen

By Jen Vertanen

Intimately honest yet often hilarious conversations with people who've had the emotional crap kicked out of them and come back swinging each and every time. Together, we dive deep into how we navigate the fears, loneliness, challenges, triumphs, and most importantly, find the silver linings. Because when we’re able to tell our story about the places that hurt, we start to heal. And I don't know about you but healing is pretty f'ing amazing.
