We Can Do Hard Things with Glennon Doyle

By: Glennon Doyle & Cadence13
  • Summary

  • I’m Glennon Doyle, author of Untamed, the book that was released at the very start of the pandemic and became a lifeline for millions. I watched in awe from my home while this simple phrase from Untamed – WE CAN DO HARD THINGS – the mantra that saved my life twenty years ago, became a worldwide rally cry. Life is freaking hard. We are all doing hard things every day – we love and lose; we forge and end friendships; battle addiction, illness, and loneliness; care for children and parents; struggle in our jobs, our marriages, our divorces; we try to set and hold boundaries – and we fight for equality, purpose, joy, and peace right in the midst of all the hard. On We Can Do Hard Things, my wife Abby Wambach, my sister Amanda Doyle, and I do the only thing that has ever made life easier: We talk honestly about the hard. We laugh and cry and help each other carry the hard so we can all live a little bit lighter and braver, free-er, less alone.

It feels like outrage farming.

It has the feel of people who are not wise pretending wisdom. I think I was supposed to be outraged as a woman. I don't see these meek, subservient women in my circles, so this may just be the truth for her, but not for me. YMMV.

Genuine and real!

This podcast is my absolute favorite! Hits home on so many real hard things but also joyful things that come from the hard. I find myself really deeply listening, laughing and identifying not only with myself, but those in my life as well that these topics hit home on. Thank you for your honest grit, and laughter but also the ability to see the rainbow through the hard issues. I really love this podcast!!! Keep it up!!!

Yes, please...sign me up!

I love this episode, and I am willing and ready to sign up for your event and agree to all of your terms. I also agree with you about the texting, so we could definitely be friends. When you work out the details, keep me in mind :)...doesn't matter if it is during this year, this decade, or this lifetime;)...and of course in a completely normal and non stalkerish way!

Meh. But could be better with some changes!

I just recently started listening from the beginning episode and want to make some polite suggestions. The points talked about in the podcast are usually pretty great and I really enjoy listening, but the delivery can be better improving the whole experience for us as the audience.

The word "right" needs to be used less! It is asked as a question, used as a statement, or an exclamation with every single person on the podcast throughout each hour.

The word "babe" needs to be used less. It's just too much. Too much, Babe.

The wealth and business talk would be best not spoken about. We understand this is a business for you guys and you are making lots of money (and have lots of money already). The majority of people listening to you do not, and it is uncomfortable to hear you talk about monies, financial stress, or your business really in any capacity.

Finally, Abby is great but not every person is into that sexually! There have been a lot of instances where her appearances are talked about in this very irresistible way and sorry Glennon, but that is so far from the truth for a lot of us. She is your cup of tea (and that's great since you married her!) and I love listening to her perspectives and opinions, but let's stop taking about her visually.

I think the content of each episode is great, but it makes it tough(er) to listen with these topics and word choices used constantly.

New Fav Podcast

I fell in love with G when listening to Untamed on audible. It was life changing truly. When I heard she was making a podcast with her sister I was excited and it has not disappointed. I could listen to them talk all day. And her daughter's song is so sweet (brings a little tear to my eye everytime). Thank you for sharing yourselves and time!!

Yes! Thank you all so much!

This episode has been amazing. Thank you all for your vulnerability with this really *hard* (sometimes I guess) topic. Especially sister, I appreciate her ability to talk to the women who have been in that situation. It’s not easy and we need to talk about this more. Thank you.

Also, I agree. I do think a lot of the silent sex Queen issues are around control. This has given me a lot to consider. Thanks so much.

T.I.R.E.D

I cried listening to the intro (before even listening to the Podcast) because, like most women, I feel the overwhelm at the soul level. How do we get out of this viscous cycle?

All the feels

This podcast brings all the feels; laughter, sadness, camaraderie, compassion, joy, and so many others.
With every episode, I feel as if I am sitting right there, sharing a fantastic conversation among friends.
I have shared this podcast with several other women, and we all agree. This is the best! Thank you for your dedication, vulnerability, and joy you bring to my life through your podcast.

No words

I found this podcast by chance as I was looking for 'Untamed' (which I'm listening to at the moment and love just as much as the podcast). I usually binge listen to 4 to 6 episodes while at work, then take some time to recharge the batteries and process. I love the dynamic between Glennon, Amanda and Abby. They have become great companions while I weed away in the garden I tend to. The episodes make me sme, laugh, cry, feel empowered and so very heavy and helpless sometimes. Glennon's work is one of the important ones in this journey of finding myself that I'm currently on. I hope they will carry on for a while because I'm not yet ready for them to leave. I like it and I learn a lot from this and am grateful that it exists.

I love WCDHT.

Especially poignant for me atm. What a wonderful podcast. Reactive moments, we all have those. Better to end a relationship with kindness and respect for one another.
Thank you for your shows. I actually recommended them to my ex earlier today lol.
