Becoming Widowish with Melissa Gould

While scrolling through Facebook, Jane happened on her friend Nancy’s post raving about a book she was currently reading. That book was Widowish. After doing a little research Jane knew she needed to have Melissa on the show to speak about her journey of becoming a widow, or widowish at a very young age. The book is a deeply personal and a spiritually strong memoir about Melissa’s path through losing her beloved husband Joel. Jane could not put the book down and read it in two days. Join Jane as she welcome’s Melissa Gould on The Next Room to discuss what it means to say goodbye to your best friend and to become widowish.

She soon traveled west and has worked at legendary radio stations such as KTYD Santa Barbara, KGB, KSON and K-BEST 95 in San Diego.
