This relationship feature is effective in activating the audience to participate in a story. Deal Breakers works well for ensemble casts and can be great for solo shows as well. The story plays out through listener situations and problems.
Deal Breakers is a cousin of other relationship features like Second Date Update and Forgive and Forget. It is ideal for less aggressive stations or shows, such as a Hot AC, AC or Classic Hits station. And, it offers the flexibility to reach into more diverse situations, rather than just dating and relationships.
The appeal is in the story that is created, which almost always has more than one possible outcome. This allows you to discuss it (if you choose) and come to a conclusion (though not a solution).
