Mother's Day

Get the tissues ready because we're bringing this one back. 

It's Mother's Day. We had some listeners call in and tell us what they would tell their Mothers and share their intimate stories with us. Everything from the smiles to the tears to a death on Mother's Day, no one holds back.

105: What's In A Name?

Hi, what's your name? More importantly, what does your name mean? To Jeannine, it means a connection to her late grandmother. Jeannine left a message to her grandmother and namesake telling the story of their shared letters. If you've ever been unhappy with your name - maybe you've even thought of changing it - listen to today's episode and reflect on exactly what your name means to you.

104: I, Isabel

We all have moments we want to talk to our past selves about. Whether it be a past ex to avoid dating, a moment of embarrassment to sidestep, or just a moment in time when the going got tough. Isabel left a message for her past self, letting her know that it might not look like it, but she has an eating disorder, but with a little bit of self-love, and a little bit of knitting, she can get through it all.  

For more information on eating disorders, check out NEDIC for amazing resources.

102: Leslie

"When I think back to these moments, I can't help but wonder if they were planned."

When you meet someone for the first time, you never quite know how they're going to impact you. But in some way, everyone you meet does. This week's message is from Trevor. He looks back to when he worked at a summer camp with his friend Leslie - a proven force in his life.

101: Mr. Burns

Everyone had that one teacher that you owed the world to.
The teacher that went above and beyond to get you through the day.
It's more than a job well done - but we don't always pass on that gratitude to the Mr.'s and Mrs.'s of our high school years.

Our first message is from the co-producer on the show Arif Jaffer. Listen in as he shares a message that he hopes will make his former vice principal proud.
