Cheating, resentments, broken penises – there isn’t much Honor Eastly and Peter C. Hayward won’t talk about in Being Honest With My Ex. It’s exactly what it says on the pack: the pair were once engaged, but from 2015 to 2017, living on opposite sides of the world from each other, they made time each week to sit down and talk about life, love and the mess that is our humanity.
Listening to them unpack what went wrong in their relationship feels incredibly voyeuristic, but also strangely comforting. Everything is fair game, and their conversations are packed with vulnerability. The occasional truth bomb is dropped. But it’s anchored by Eastly and Hayward’s familiar banter and wit, allowing them to navigate the most complicated of topics in a way that’s both edifying and hilarious.
