We’re Leslie and Laura Camacho. We created the Glimmering podcast to help ourselves - and others - to think and talk about The Big Stuff. Join us as we learn out loud together on subjects ranging from marriage and mental health to politics and parenting. We’re committed to help each other love deeply, grow successfully, and live justly.

In this episode we are once again catching up after a long unintended break! Lots has happened to the Camachos since we were last here 6 months ago. While we skim over some of the low points of 2019, this episode is mostly a retrospective of Marriage Startup and Glimmering 1.0, plus a lot of excitement about the future of Glimmering and this podcast.
Don’t worry! We’re not going anywhere. The archives will be disappearing, though, for the sake of family privacy. So go back and listen to your favorites (they’re at glimmeringpodcast.com) while you can! And if there are any you loved and want to hear again, email us and we will consider a re-release.
