Episode 1: A Question of Longevity and Secrets About Deathly Wishes

Welcome to the Inaugural episode of We’re All Just Pretending a podcast that brings you a bit of Dear Abby with a twist of Post Secret.

Here is how it works: We have three separate advice segments: Charlie’s Corner, Bad Advice with Haley and Lanie’s Take. Then we move on to the segment called Skeletons in Your Closet – this is the part of the show where listener secrets are revealed. Some of the secrets are funny, weird and sad – it can’t be predicted.

This episode you’ll hear from a woman who is questioning the value and longevity of her long term relationship; Charlie helps her out.

Listeners ask Haley for some terrible advice about time travel and one woman wonders how much love she has in her heart for her husband and his needs.

A mother asks Lanie about her daughters sporadic relationship with her ex-boyfriend, and a not so lonely man wonders about companionship.


Secrets are revealed from being secretly bad to wondering about the sexual proclivities of strangers.
