What is this series about?

Have you ever wanted to share your deepest, darkest secrets? We get it. Sometimes you just need someone to listen, and sometimes you need someone to tell you that it's OK. But in the real world, it's hard to find people who will reach out and help without judgment. It's even harder to find them in an environment where everyone is anonymous. That's why we created "The Stuff We Don't Say" series!


How will it work?

The Stuff We Don't Say" is an anonymous video advice series that takes the traditional "Dear Abby" concept and adds a more interactive and immersive experience. We want people to feel safe enough to share their secrets with usā€”and also learn from others who have been through similar experiences.This advice series will combine a group of panelists who have gone through something similar while allowing viewers to share their thoughts via polls, writing in journals, responding to prompts, and more.
