Episode #5 The Science of Love 

We are SO excited about this episode!! We got to sit down with some truly amazing minds for a special episode all about the way that our brains and our body chemicals help create bonds in our  relationships OR cause damage!  

I (Melanie) conducted 3 AMAZING Skype interviews with Science Mike (aka Mike McHargue) of The Liturgist Podcast and Ask Science Mike, Dr. Corey Allan from Sexy Marriage Radio, and Dr. Dan Siegel from The Mindsight Institute and learned a ton about the science behind relationships and marriage and I can’t wait to see what you all think about it!

Of course we brought back Dr. Claudia Grouff-Grounds from S.P.U. to put in her  two cents about the different ways that we can foster the good chemicals in our relationships.  

Oh! And at the end of this episode Seth makes yet another confession that I was completely blindsided by! I mean…What the heck?!

We have been spending a ton of time building my BRAND NEW OFFICE!!!! And I can’t wait to share it with you! Our home is small and creating the Stronger Marriages Podcast meant that I needed a place to edit audio, record calls, narrate episodes and SO MUCH MORE,  so we decided to build a She Shed for all of my Podcasting equipment, and so far she looks AMAZING! More pictures next week!  

See y’all next week!
