A great guest is a proven expert who is confident, offers information freely, and engages easily in on-air, video conversation. S/he has the expertise, education, and experience to speak knowledgeably within  this niche. S/he can relax and share their insights, strategies, stories, and wisdom, knowing the host’s promotion of them is more compelling than self-promotion.

This is not your usual relationship show. It is uniquely dedicated to helping listeners recognize and recover from toxic relationships.

Our episodes offer both solocasts from Dr. Rhoberta Shaler, and interviews with expert guests with in-depth, unique, highly-niched topics related directly to toxic relationships.

Love authors, researchers, and other podcasters, too! 


dealing with difficult people


My work is providing urgent care for relationships in crisis, and unique insights and strategies for dealing with the difficult, toxic–and often disturbing–people I call “Hijackals®.”

As a relationship consultant, educator, and author, I help my clients escape the endless cycle of crazy-making behavior, alienation, and constant drama in troubled relationships.  My mission is to help people stop tolerating abuse, particularly verbal and emotional abuse.

If you would like to be a guest on Save Your Sanity, ideally you will:

  • focused on the unique needs of those struggling with the impacts of difficult, toxic relationships
  • be passionate about what you do and know exactly why you do it
  • have written books, ebooks, articles, blogs–all of value to your audience…and mine.
  • welcome in-depth conversations about difficult topics, unscripted
  • have reach with your own newsletter and social media circles to share your interview within a week of it airing.

If this describes you, apply today!

All interviews are pre-recorded on video, and we distribute the podcast audio across all the major podcast apps.
