We Can Do Hard Things with Glennon Doyle


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. Because we experienced the hardship of the pandemic collectively, many of us finally acknowledged what was true before COVID and will be true after: That life is freaking HARD. We are all doing hard things every single day – things like loving and losing caring for children and parents; forging and ending friendships; battling addiction, illness, and loneliness; struggling in our jobs, our marriages, and our divorces; setting boundaries; and fighting for equality, purpose, freedom, joy, and peace. On We Can Do Hard Things, my sister Amanda and I will do the only thing I’ve found that has ever made life easier: We will drop the fake and talk honestly about the hard. Each week we will bring our hard to you and we will ask you to bring your hard to us and we will do what we were all meant to do down here: Help each other carry the hard so we can all live a little bit lighter and braver, more free and less alone.

    Love love love
    I just learned how to leave a review, from y’all!! I freaking love this podcast and the conversations it provokes. Proud to be a “pod squadder”❤️

    Everything is political!
    Just read a negative review from a listener who didn’t like that the show turned “political”. Guess they didn’t like hearing that Abby, Glennon and Sister support all women and the freedoms and equalities of ALL beings. (Ie: they don’t subscribe to the Republicans of today who clearly DON’T share the same values AND ARE ACTIVELY WORKING AGAINST THEM!!! !) Fyi dear listener - POLITICS GOVERN OUR LIVES AND DETERMINE OUR FREEDOMS! OF COURSE WCDHT got “political”! It’s not a dirty word. It’s the governance of our one and only precious life that others are controlling! Thank you Glennon, Abby, and Amanda for doing the hard thing and being goddam real about what’s happening in our country! 🙏🏼

    Absolutely IN LOVE!
    I found this podcast and Untamed like fate. I saw a TikTok of someone reading a passage from the book and I immediately added it to my Amazon cart. Truthfully, it sat on my coffee table for a few months but after I picked it up I was totally hooked and read it in only a few days (HA!). Then comes in this podcast. Me & a friend refer to it as THE podcast because this is the only one we love enough to follow consistently. Love the ladies on this podcast and all the work they are doing for the world!!

    My favorite podcast
    I love this podcast and I never miss an episode. I especially like the thoughtful and brilliant insight that Amanda brings to the podcast. I would listen to a podcast of just her but I do really enjoy the 3 of them and their different perspectives.
  • meSheryl
    It’s like sitting with friends. I love this podcast.
  • Kassie Cruz
    Amazing conversations
    Glenn and I have always appreciated what you have put out into the world with such incredible vulnerability and honesty. It helps the rest of us become more comfortable with expressing our truth!! This episode was no different and I’m getting ready to listen to it a second time to absorb more of what I learned… Thank you so much. Kass Cruz

    Thank You amazing women!
    I have listened to every episode of this podcast. Several I have listened to multiple times. Glennon, Amanda and Abby are amazing. They are raw, vulnerable, honest and they challenge the way I think. Every episode has wisdom, strength and encouragement to do the hard things (and the easy things). Thank you - amazing women for what you have created. I admire you all. I love your relationships to each other and so appreciate being part of your pod squad. Keep up the amazing work!

    My Favorite. Recommend TO EVERYONE
    Glennon, Amanda/Sister and Abby are pure gold. Their discussions are the ultimate adventure into these tough, universal truths of being humans, with refreshing perspectives on how to support ourselves and others empathetically. I love these three and their ability to take us into real topics, with grace and reminding us how yo stay openhearted ❤️
  • Mrs_Medwards

    Good until it wasn’t
    It got political. “We support women. Unless you’re republican, then we will tell you what we think you believe and why you’re a terrible human.”
  • docafay63
    Women lifting up other women…
    Why have we not done it more? Why is it so novel? I love that you three and your many bright, thoughtful and beautiful guests are creating what so many of us have needed. Thank you for your creative and inspired work. You are a joy!
  • debm930
    Love you guys! I have never listened to a more honest conversation and I thank you for that.🥰
  • truelizrose
    A Brief Summary of the Podcast:
    Amanda: Facts! Figures! Definitions! All the proveables! 🎉 Glennon and Abby: No facts, just ✨vibes✨ 😂 all joking aside, this podcast is amazing—and part of what makes it so amazing is the truth that comes from the blend of quantifiable proof and lived experience that Glennon, Amanda, Abby and all the guests bring to the table. I have never felt more seen, thank y’all so much for this ❤️
  • Kellie913
    Love this podcast so much
    Glennon, Sister and Abby - I am a fairly new listener. I was kindly sent the “Overwhelm” episode by a friend of mine and let’s just say it gave me such relief. Since then, I’ve been hooked to we can do hard things :) I have power listening to all but about 10 episodes (listening to 1-2 a day haha). I am a mom of 2 young girls, ages 2 and 3.5 and your podcast has given me such hope for the world of women. Anyway, wonderful content. Love how deep, heavy and complicated it all is - no lightening up!

    Walk with me
    I just finished the episode with Brene Brown and on her new book. Glennon, thank you for having her on your podcast, deeply. What resonated with me the most was the last nugget you asked Brene for, and it was…when our people are struggling, do not fix or try to control, but “walk with them.” I’ve wanted to fix and protect my children since their father died nearly 8 months ago. I have e always felt THAT pain and loss was enough, too much in fact for their young lives (7 and 11 when he died of bladder cancer), and so I wanted to spare them from anymore. How naive of me. Now 15 and 19, going through some of the biggest challenges of their life, I see it differently. I can’t fix, protect or spare them from the harsh realities of life, anymore than I could stop their father’s cancer. So thank you- now I will walk with them. I feel this revelation can start to bring me more peace as a parent. Glennon, I first heard you speak on Brene’s podcast, “Unlocking Us,” hit “Untamed,” finished it, follow you on Instagram, and now will be following and joining Together Rising. You and Abby are such very GOOD HUMANS…God bless you and thank you for all you do for our collective community on this planet. I believe you are opening minds all over the place. ~Christine Ames widow, teacher, daughter,sister, and mother of an LGBTQ+ family 💕
    Speaks to Me
    Glennon, Sister and Abby are the perfect combination of emotional intelligence, cerebral insight, intuition, and honesty. Love this podcast.

    A breath of fresh air
    Thank goodness y’all found your rhythm with all three of you on the podcast. It is now crying-while-playing perfection.
  • Iriss
    It’s okay
    1. No one introduces themselves so I never remember who is who or what exactly their relationship is—are they teacher/students? Sisters? If they could just each day their names it be very helpful, lol. 2. It’s very very very straight white lady-ish. I know there are guests who are POC but from listening I can tell they live in a very privileged bubble. Like I was listening to one episode on “what not to say” to people going through hard times and it just doesn’t resonate with my experience. When you really have support then I guess you get to scrutinize how people are reacting and treating you—frankly I would have been grateful if someone had asked me how I’m doing “really” or if people were at all interested in my losses. I found most people avoiding saying anything.
  • Louise MB
    YES Curious
    LOVE the hosts, topics, format, guest, all of the programming is highly motivating and leads to transformational living! I’ve been a in a spiritual leadership role facilitating shadow work for years and your show gets my two thumbs up and 5 stars! I’m curious if you might be curious to hear if/when listeners have constructive feedback as your recorded endgame indicates you really only want feedback from people who really like your programming. Please consider re-recording if you feel this comment has enough merit around this tough topic of feedback when it isn’t all glowy/happy/happy.
  • leadcatpress
    Thank you!
    One of my friends encouraged me to listen this podcast, and it’s become one of my favorites. Thank you for all the work you do, for showing up as your true selves, and for grounding us all with the words that are often hard for us non-writers to find.
  • maggieG2018
    I never miss a week!
    The biggest treasure to come out of 2021. Love these ladies !
  • nonsme1543986527
    It is amazing to see how beautiful and important this podcast has become. The cancellation of G’s book tour was devastating. Look what has risen from the flames. Glennon and her team walk the walk and talk the talk. They are mentors, inspirers, and cheerleaders for all of us struggling with ‘life’ Thanks Gods for the podcast and for these beautiful human beings.
  • Chol68
    My New Favorite!
    I 💜 this podcast. Definitely my new favorite. I look forward to every Tuesday & Thursday morning so I can listen to this while getting ready for work. The difficult, important, insightful conversations have truly helped me to become a better mother, daughter, partner and friend. Thank you for the blood, sweat & tears that you shed while creating this and putting it out into the world.
  • kjghgh
    Love these ladies!
    Real life stories, talking about realities women face today and how we can deal with them all!
    Elephant in the room
    I absolutely love, love, love this podcast. I listen every tues and thurs morning on my commute and I have missed my exit more than once. And I am so grateful for Amanda giving us Glennon by her lifelong support and picking her off the bathroom floor and Glennon giving us Amanda whose perspective I adore and who seems like one of the smartest people on the planet without being condescending.. And Abby. I mean, amazing. I do also think there is an issue that is not discussed. There is a level of privilege and level of needed resources that allow women to turn away from family structures, jobs, marriages, communities, traditions that no longer serve them. There is a level of privilege to walk away from a marriage with a bank account and successful career and into the arms of an equally financially secure partner. It doesn’t make it less bold and less brave or mean it isn’t hard. But it truly is not an option for many, many women. There is a level of privilege to be able to be still and go deep inside, and not lay in bed at night trying to decide if you should pay your electric bill or water bill and if there is any way you can pay for rec dept dance for your child who is begging for lessons. I say this not to criticize in any way your message and I get so so so so much out of all of what you say. I am fortunate to have the ability to make changes in my life if I need to and don’t face a lot of barriers that other do.. I also feel like your platform could be a great way to collectively start discussing the structures/policies/politics/religion that exist that do not serve women and families by making them forced to stay stuck and a little bit dead inside. Going deep into our knowing shouldn’t be an indulgent, frivolous, time wasting activity that is seems for people trying to just put food on their table. What a great thing you all could do is leveraging your audience to give rise to a grass roots org that can articulate the policies that keep us stuck and how to push back on that.

    GAS for the soul
    Glennon Abby & Sister Are the GAS I need to get through my week. Year. Life? lol also they make me laugh as much as they make me cry and that’s a good balance. <3
  • Di Bjorg
    The best
    This podcast feels like a breath of fresh air. It brings so much insight into my life. It reminds me to keep going even when days are long & hard as a mother of 3 young kids. It reminds me to be kind to myself. I am so so so glad they decided to do this podcast & I look forward to it weekly!
  • justinegaziano
    each of you keep being you
    thank you — each of you — for your kindness and brilliance and compassion. thank you for reminding us it’s okay to feel it all — to never stop loving and laughing and forgiving and being.

    Honest, Beautiful Truths
    Dear Glennon, Amanda, Abby, and guests, Thank you for this brilliant series. Your honesty is refreshing, the openness you all share with us each week is unparalleled. I feel like I’m walking around with friends who make me feel OK in times that are anything but OK. Losing a parent to COVID a year ago put me in a deep funk—it was one of ten losses in a 14-month period. Thank you for making me think, feel, cope, cry, laugh, and work toward being me for me, and being true to myself. It just feels right. My 24-year old daughter (who lives across the country) and I are a mini-podsquad. It’s wonderful to have this connection with her. Starting the journal. Keep the wonderful guests coming. Kate Bowler blew me away. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
  • CutthroatEtta
    We Can Do Hard Things is another one of my favorite podcasts. I love the way Glennon, Abby, and Amanda capture the human experience and normalizes all of it! These awesome people are intelligent, loving, and freaking amazing. I love you guys.

    Thank you
    Relatable. Real. Right on track with reality. My day is so much better with the three of you in it! Thank you! - MB in Arlington, VA

    Life changing
    I adore listening to Glennon, Sister and Abby. So much about what these thoughtful women discuss touches me at a deep level, waking up my insides. My life has already been changed in numerous ways by listening with an open heart and open mind. I've overcome perpetual fear and anxiety, putting my values in action, for myself and in my relationships. Thank you, warrior women, for your leading voices, your kindness, your curiosity, your generosity, and so much more.
  • jbfrm
    The only podcast I listen to multiple times
    Glennon, Abby and Amanda are national treasures. I have learned so much from them, and about myself, over the last year. This is the only podcast I listen to more than one time through, the one I share most, and the one I force my 16 year old son to listen to occasionally. (He’s actually leaned some things and enjoyed it too :) Bless you all- you are amazing.
  • AnnandMarti
    This podcast is everything! My wife and I listen on the way to work every morning! It is such a joy to listen to the happiness, empathy, heart, honesty, and humor of Glennon, Amanda, and Abby. They are such a great team and I encourage anyone who is a mother, father, son, daughter; has a partner. children, friends, or just themselves (basically EVERYONE) to give this special podcast a listen.
  • merileefox
    The best podcast series I’ve ever found.
    This is the best podcast series I have ever found. Glennon, Amanda and Abby talk about the things no one else is talking about. The truth. Depth. Authenticity. Who we truly are. This is life-changing and life-giving. I can’t get enough. This is like therapy for me, from the comfort of my own home. My husband and I and my friends and I are having deeper conversations as a result of these podcasts. I am connecting more deeply with myself. Keep these conversations coming. I appreciate your courage and commitment to life. You are helping to change and uplift humanity!
  • Saida Cora
    Authentic, joyful and insightful podcast
    Thank you for your beautiful podcast! I love that your content is rooted in the human experience from a non-judgmental and affirming framework. Yay! People and our issues are centered here. Lastly and most importantly, (in my opinion) the flow is natural and conversational. The episodes with Ashley C. Ford are my favorite. Dynamic interviews and helpful side-notes with research-backed facts. Love it!
  • MurTron
    Fav podcast
    This is literally my favorite podcast. It is like being friends with Abby, Glennon and Amanda and getting to walk alongside as we all learn to love ourselves the most. It feeds my soul.

    These people are sooo ridiculous!! It’s insulting crap!! Gag!!
  • Jennifer L Wheeler
    Thought Provoking
    I'm obsessed with this podcast. Every episode feels like I just had a deep conversation over coffee with some of my best friends. I've laughed, cried, and had many aha moments where I learn something about myself or a lesson that applicable to my everyday life. They talk about topics that so many of us might face and feel like we're facing alone but quickly realize we're all in this together. I love that they are able to be vulnerable and talk about the real, raw and hard things! Please never stop recording episodes- this has impacted my life in so many positive ways!
  • DDDee
    Such a gift
    Thank you for everything you do! I am so grateful for this podcast.
  • Gale Dee
    I love this podcast and am a faithful listener but I feel that Abby is sort of left out of much of the conversation. I understand that the principles are Glennon and Amanda but Abby has so much to contribute. She kind of gets glossed over and she speaks from such a deep and vulnerable place. I wish we’d hear more from Abby in future podcasts.
  • jayla_55
    This podcast gets me through the week while I work on my pottery orders, and I laugh out loud while listening! I also LOVE Abby’s laugh!
    This Podcast is Life
    We all need this podcast. Amazing. Beautifully done, real, and raw. ❤️
  • BF1391
    The best!
    Listening to Glennon, Abby, and Amanda over the past year has been so healing and profound. It has helped me to WANT to feel it all. To want to be still. To let it burn. They’re the best.
