S8E3: It’s Too Late | Carole King and Gerry Goffin & Matt Lauer

This week is all about balance here at Trashy Divorces HQ. Alicia starts us off with one of the real creative heroes of our age, songwriter and legend Carole King, whose marriage and professional partnership to lyricist Gerry Goffin produced some of the most iconic songs of the 1960s. Their divorce was only the beginning of her long and successful career in music.

Then, Stacie takes us to a much darker place with the story of disgraced TV anchor Matt Lauer, whose workplace misbehavior destroyed his career and his marriage. Content warning: This includes some pretty disturbing allegations of sexual violence, and we’re not mad if you’re not up for it.
