When the Bough Breaks

When the Bough Breaks (WTBB) is a podcast that was formed with the idea of creating a resource for those who find themselves estranged from one or more family members. Guests call in the show to discuss the events that led up to their estrangement and share their experiences throughout their journey. Guests also include psychologists, family counselors, life coaches, writers and more! Alexis Arralynn, one of the few podcasters willing to tackle this difficult and often painful topic, realizes that one important step toward healing and recovery, is vulnerability. She has opened up about her own personal journey of estrangement in several episodes.... Show More
