About the Podcast

Reading Aloud
Welcome to the Reading Aloud Podcast, a place where the creative, emotional and hilarious aspects of relationship communication are explored in real-time, by a real Married couple. Marisol and Adam are a married couple living in Asheville, North Carolina. Outside of the Podcast, Marisol is an entrepreneur, who owns SolReflection, a therapeutic image consulting firm (she's a style therapist) and Adam works for Dogwood Alliance, a environmental non-profit organization. After dating, marriage, and lots of travel, the couple went on a long fertility journey. That journey lead them to IVF, a tremulous pregnancy, post partum depression and an amazing life altering miracle kid, Neo (all while recording the ups & downs). These days Marisol and Adam are raising a toddler, navigating the surrogate process to add to their family, and starting the egg retrieval/IVF process again after a miscarriage. Tune in as the couple provides you insight into how they communicate, navigate and thrive through married life, parenting, being an adult, and living in the world today.
