009 - What Is Wrong With The Divorce Court System?
Welcome to episode 009! This is a unique show because instead of having the usual format with one guest, I decided to have a few different guests from various backgrounds answer the same question about divorce. It adds a little flavor to the show!
The question I posed to our guests was: What do you think is the biggest problem with the divorce court system today and why do you feel that way?
The answers were interesting!
The guests that participated were the following:

Audrey is the host of the popular divorce podcast, Divorce & Other Things You Can Handle, which is run by Worthy.com. If you don't know, Worthy is a great resource if you're looking to sell your ring or other valuables you may have from your marriage. I found it so interesting, I'm having Audrey on a future episode to just talk about how that process works and why it's important if you are getting divorced.
I hope you enjoy the episode. I will try to do more compilation shows like this in the future.
