WARNING: This episode contains graphic description of domestic abuse, in case you may be sensitive to this topic. Also, we have included resources at the bottom of the episode description, as well as our Facebook page to assist if you, or if someone close to you is affected by domestic abuse.
Lisa, friend of Mara’s from her triathlon days, joins the happy Never After crew to share her story of calculated, Long game manipulation, which ended long after physical abuse came into the picture. Mara relates with her own past and Andrew is just concerned about what’s on the menu at Denny’s. Relationships aren’t always as pretty as the Instagram filter makes them.

Use Code: HAPPYZ in the Promo Code Line
It all started when our founder and washlet revolutionary, Miki Agrawal experienced different caboose cleaning rituals - from the Indian lota to the tune whistling Japanese bidet. Inspired by the simple joys of this daily ritual (and shocked that American toilet habits haven’t changed since the 1800’s), she created Tushy. We’re a team of toilet crusaders, fighting for clean bums and reduced global wastefulness. We come to work every day, where talking “crap” actually counts, because we’re ultimately turning people into born-again bidet lovers.
