Description

From the hosts of Forever35 comes a daily show to offer comfort and support during this scary and uncertain time. Each weekday morning, we’ll fill you in on what’s been going on in our socially distant lives, hear what our listeners have been up to, offer advice, and give you something to do, listen to, or watch that will help take your mind off things — if even for just a few minutes. However long this lasts, we want you to know: we're here for you.

We both get a little sad about the end of this show! It's been a tumultuous 10 weeks, but we are so glad that we were able to be here for you, and that you were here for us. And don't forget, Here For You is ending, but we'll still be here for you on Forever35! Join us over there on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for more of the same thoughts, advice, and laughs. On this final episode, we get some more game and activity suggestions, and a listener tells us about her very small backyard wedding that was surprisingly poignant. The word of the day is: CHECK IN. The activity of the day is: CHECK IN WITH SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT. We're still taking your calls and emails on Forever35! Call us at 781-591-0390 or email us at forever35podcast@gmail.com.

I love Here For You so much. It is so calming and feels like catching up with an old friend. It helps me feel like what I am going through, what we are all going through is normal and okay. Thank you for for being willing to be Here while you also process everyday life.
