Tell Me How You’re Mighty Podcast

Welcome to Tell Me How You’re Mighty — the podcast about surviving infidelity and other hard stuff.

Your hosts are Tracy Schorn (aka “Chump Lady”) and Sarah Gorrell — a radio presenter with the BBC. A pairing that’s akin to inviting a junkyard dog to your tea party. Sarah brings the dulcet tones. Tracy brings the snark.

We talk about infidelity, relationships, parenting, and, of course, mightiness.


Be on the show! Ask a question or briefly tell us about your mightiness. You can leave us a 90-second voicemail here.
