The Relationship Radio: Marriage, Sex, Limerence & Avoiding Divorce podcast is a weekly show helping couples since 2017. Dr. Joe Beam cohosts the show with his daughter, Kimberly Beam Holmes. Joe is a doctor of biomedical science with a focus on sexology. Kimberly holds a master's in psychology and serves as Marriage Helper's CEO. The Tennessee organization's goal is to slash the number of divorces in America.
All this to say, this father and daughter know what they are talking about. The cohosting duo covers topics that could turn sensationalistic in other hands. Instead, they treat destructive behavior between married couples in practical and empathetic terms. Lying, cheating, shame, hate, and addiction all get compassionate treatment on this podcast. The word “limerence” in the title refers to obsessive infatuation with another person.
Of course, Joe and Kimberly also work through happier concepts for listeners. They provide tips on forgiveness, reconciliation, hope, and attraction. The tone of the whole podcast is a comforting one. The hosts are businesslike but likable. Their easy familial rapport and plainspokenness often make uncomfortable conversations more comfortable. Plus, it's informative to hear perspectives from both sexes and from two different age groups.
Relationship Radio aims to give couples the basic tools they need. That goes for whether it's to save the marriage or make it stronger than ever.read less
