Breaking up is never easy. It’s often sad, humiliating, scary, and depressing. Yet, there are times when it is absolutely necessary. In this episode, Buck and Helena talk about why it’s okay to break free from a sinking ship. In episode 52 they talked about creating your own inner happiness and how that contributes to a healthy relationship. What happens when only one of you does the heavy lifting of inner work, repeatedly coming up against the friction created by a partner who cannot or will not do the work necessary to create their own inner happiness? At what point do you call “game over”?

And if you find yourself in need of a great bar in which to drink your sorrows away (or celebrate your freedom), Buck and Helena talk to professional bartender, Adrienne Nicole, Newport’s own Liquid Chef. One of Adrienne’s craft cocktails is sure to lift your spirits, whether you are single or happily attached. Listen in!

Show Notes and Links:


THAT NEWPORT SHOW is a weekly podcast sharing the stories and characters that make Newport, Rhode Island America’s favorite city by the sea.

With each episode, hosts Buck & Helena share their Newport experiences in segments like Dine & Dish, Adventure Island, and Shop Newport.

blackandwhiteBuck and Helena are a couple of old punks who survived what they call “the toddler years” (plus a few extra). As they slowly regain their sanity, this smart and silly couple are once again venturing out into the world to get their party on. They may be a bit slower these days, but they are also a lot wiser. And honestly, a lot more fun. Read more about your hosts.

While That Newport Show features a lot of what Newport has to offer both visitors and residents, the essence of show is about two grown-ups who really have no business being grown-ups, and the things they get up to in Newport – as well as at home on their small New England horse farm.

Every Thursday the Sparkle and Boom Podcast Network airs a new episode. You can stream or download episodes from our website, or listen on iTunes, GooglePlayStitcher Radio, or your favorite podcatcher app.  We hope you’ll join us!
