“Elephant Talk has created a space for dialogue that is often pretty scarce, but so necessary. It is heartening to hear and relate to so many honest stories about both the joys and struggles of love and relationships. These are the conversations we would all do well to have more of. Thanks, Elephant Talk!” — iTunes Reviewer

“This podcast demonstrates the true beauty of relationships, how the struggle is an inevitable and even important part of the journey. It gives me hope after several years of feeling deep heartbreak over the loss of a relationship. Looking forward to hearing more!” —  iTunes Reviewer

Each of us communicates differently, and that can develop from family, from culture, from religion, from language, and from within. We are looking for couples to share their stories. We want couples who have gone through something small or big and have a great story to tell, couples who have dreams for the future, and couples who want to deepen their relationship by moving through a difficult issue.
