Communicating with your partner can be really hard. Period. In Episode 58, Christine and I respond to a listener who’s struggling to communicate with her husband by joint interviewing licensed mental health counselor Jonathan Baxter — who also happens to be Christine’s husband! I think this may be one of our best podcasts yet. Jon is BRILLIANT and our conversation was like taking a master class in relationship-building. We cover a wide range, but also get really practical on gender issues, correcting power imbalances, family systems, differing priorities, the challenge of asserting oneself, compassion, coping with resentment, and the easiest tweak to start conversations off on the right foot.
