Show 183 - Honey Boy and Telephone Warm Lines

Like the song says, sometimes we need somebody to lean on. Or talk to, human to human. In this episode a look at telephone support lines.

Also in this episode, my brief look at the movie Honey Boy, I can't say if it is a good or bad  movie because it spiked into some vintage pain for me and I had to leave. I explain more in the podcast.

I can say that if you are triggered by verbal or emotional abuse then this might be a flick that you might need to watch in segments. Or not at all. Then again, it might resonate with you and give you a lot to think about.
