Relationships Unscripted is a riveting and comical yet insightful podcast about relationships and the trauma we experience from them.
A cast of broken-hearted characters join host, leading and celebrity psychotherapist, Dr. Lisa C. Palmer, PhD, LMFT, CHT, CRRTT, Founder of The Renew Center of Florida, ranked #1 for Treatment of PTSD in US, and Founder of RenewMe Digital Mindfulness brand launching in 2020. Together they bring real-life romantic drama, slapstick humor, and scholarly wisdom to everyday and not-so-common relationship heartbreak.
This cast of unusual characters, all who have developed their own unique ways of coping with love and loss, assemble to find solutions on – how to rise up from heartbreak, outsmart and recover from narcissistic abuse, deal with stalkers, fear, cheating, sex and intimacy concerns, feelings of inadequacy, obsessions and disappointment, and much more.
No topic is off limits to Broken, a show that has a sort of “Howard-Stern-on-relationships” vibe, but with enlightened observations and wise opinions.
Broken helps us to laugh and giggle a little through our hurts and sufferings, as listeners relate to an upbeat cast of co-hosts and celebrity guests with unique characters and opinions.
Dr. Palmer who is a single, divorced, and happily “self-partnered” woman (at least for now), is joined by a side-kick, the lighthearted and ironic Richard, otherwise known as “Zippy,” a fitting name for a genius who distinguished himself in three different careers but whose childhood traumas caused him to never date or be in a relationship in his entire life.
The show follows Richard’s transformation from Broken into the dating world. A self-proclaimed “social isolate”, Richard has literally “Zipped” himself off from romance his entire life. Now in his 60’s, Zippy has learned everything about relationships from reading books. True story.
Much like Hugh Downs on the original Tonight show starring Jack Parr, Zippy is a co-host from Broken who “knows something about everything,” and certainly has wisdom and some wisecrack remarks to share. Can Zippy ever be rehabilitated into relationship material?
