When Molly's diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer, she decides to do something bold: she leaves her unhappy marriage and embarks on a series of sexual adventures to help her feel alive. She shares the funniest and most touching details with her closest friend, host Nikki Boyer. As they peel back the layers, we learn that Molly isn’t just grappling with breast cancer: she's also dealing with some trauma from her past. Along the journey, the friends explore bigger themes that affect us all -- like healing, forgiveness and what do we do with the time we have left.

Listeners share stories with Nikki about dating and looking for love in challenging times. From Car Alarm Scott who is connecting with women in a completely new way, to a woman who feels less alone when she meets a stranger next door, and a man’s attempt to mend his broken heart while keeping six-feet apart.
Nikki talks to people in relationships about how they are navigating the challenges of being at home together 24-7. From the sublime to the absurd — listeners share stories about falling in love, feeling trapped, and attempts to break free as they shelter-in-place with their partners.
People who are finding new connections through community and redefining what family means. From a couple who scramble to catch the last flight out of Istanbul and a senior in high school who is redefining her last year to a man living alone who gets a new roommate and a family who falls in love with a city.Follow singer/songwriter David Berkeley

Great podcast about all things seldom discussed. Inspirational to say the least. I would so much love to meet Molly and lay on a blanket and watch the clouds and talk for hour... a remarkable person.

Before downloading this podcast....I was skeptical. I thought it would be trashy. I'm thankful I did, and I'm thankful you shared this story.

The host managed to drain any interest in it by making it about her, and as for the continual interruptions with ads for other podcasts. l stopped after 3 episodes... couldn't take the host or Wondery any more.

I binged all the episodes over the last couple of days. I didn't know Molly or had ever heard of her before this podcast. Although I knew this episode was probably coming sooner or later it still filled me with a great sadness and maybe a tear or two. It's said that only the good for young and in Molly's case that is certainly true. It's funny how the life and death of someone you've only known for in voice for a few hours can have such an impact on one's emotions. I guess that Molly was such a bright light with such a bright spirit that you had no option but feel that light and feel the sadness of its loss when it went out. Even while writing this I feel that lump forming in the back of my throat. I wish I had known such a bright light and the world is a much darker place without her in it. Rest in peace bright light, your pain is gone at last.

The best podcast there is. Not only could I relate to parts of this, it helped me heal, its enlightening. Its much more than I thought it would be. Its also terrible for being so short and slightly misleading. But such is love, its a terrible, beautiful thing.
