“Podfading” – YMMP071

“Podfading” refers to the end or transition of a podcast program. The Your Marriage Matters Podcast has consistently published a weekly show for almost 18 months, or 71 episodes. I must turn my efforts toward writing on the topics of marriage, family and childbirth and am no longer able to keep pace with a weekly show. Instead, I will look for opportunities to present sporadic programs in the future. Until next time, “make your marriage great.” -Lynn, www.marriagecoachlynn.com and www.unassistedhomebirth.com.
