Jillian Hamilton
Jillian Hamilton
Host of Cheating: When Love Lies podcast
My first media gig was in the late '80s as a celebrity interviewer in Paris, France on the national network, M6. After which, I hosted a travel show and several game shows for the network. Stateside, hosting stints at FX, Fox, TLC, and Discovery later followed.

Now I just ask people lots of personal questions about cheating, and they're willing to be very transparent about this taboo topic. My guests are raw, real, and ready to talk about their affairs, infidelities, betrayals, and personal stories. I admire my guests' candor. I'm so appreciative they let me in.

People say I'm empathetic, non-judgemental, blunt, and curious with a bit of a wise mouth. All this makes for a podcast that isn't gossipy or trashy but aims to be insightful, supportive, and even humorous—albeit at times heartbreaking.
