Got a story you want us to feature on the show?

If you have a moment from your own past you wish you could change and you want us to tackle it on the show, send us an email at heavyweight@gimletmedia.com with a brief overview of what happened and how it affected you. Try to keep it to 500 words tops—much shorter is fine.

Keep in mind that the stories that work best for our purposes are the ones that remain unresolved—you should want to address or work through a moment, not just relive it. Maybe there’s a confrontation you’ve been putting off, or a question you’ve been afraid to ask. We welcome silliness, but there should be a feeling that resolving this moment could have some sort of significant impact on your life. There should also be some complication—if your regret is simple enough that you could fix it yourself with about an hour’s time and a couple of emails, it’s probably not a good fit.

Finally: we are also big proponents of going to therapy, because Jonathan, when it comes down to it, is but a well-intentioned Canadian fumbling his way through dark and murky territory. That is to say, he doesn’t really know what he’s doing.
