We are Friendshipping
and we’re here to say
Jeff Bezos sucks in a major way.
That being said, let’s discuss how to be cool to your friends when they aren’t participating in the same protest or boycotts as you are. This episode is about the balance of holding your friends accountable while letting them be imperfect people living in an imperfect society.
Content warning: this episode is all about capitalism, and there's occasional discussion of climate horror. If that's not something you can handle right now, go right to question 2 at 23m22s which is a little lighter! We make fun of Lena Dunham and Ben Affleck a lot.
It's Trin's birthday and it's Friendshipping Live! Raw! Uncut! Sweaty! Listen as we down cocktails and discuss gift-giving etiquette, group plans, and how to change up your social life when you feel like you're a boring person. Hint: you are not boring. And you have great taste in podcasts. Thank you to Dynasty Podcasts for having us and our friends for being there!
Our askers have questions about going to concerts! One wants to ignore their friends at concerts, and one has a Cool and Famous Friend and doesn't know how to be chill about it. We're deeply sorry to Beatles fans for the entire first two minutes of this episode, and we're equally sorry for the secret last question, in which we divulge just how emo we are. Enjoy!
In this episode, we do our best to answer: Uh, is this [interaction/feeling/action] weird? As two weirdos ourselves, allow us to tell you: YOU BET YOUR ASS IT IS! Also keep listening for the third question, which is one of the most challenging inquiries we've gotten, and note our content warning for mentions of mental illness.
Sometimes we receive questions that are just beyond our ability to answer. That's why this week, our esteemed friends Billie and Kat of the UnLearned Podcast are here to assist with questions about friendship and race. How do I support my PoC friends? What are some common White People Fuck Ups I should be more aware of? Content warnings apply. Don't miss UnlearnedPodcast.com.
What's a good way to show your friends you're proud of them? Well that's a real sweet question and we've got some ideas! We've also got a wild story about a fake girlfriend that is so good it needs its own Netflix special.
Maintaining friendships once you reach your mid-30s has a few special challenges. Starting with: "My friend doesn't. leave. She insists on extending our hangouts for hours and hours. She's even just spent the night." HAHA WHOA. Let's do this.
Content warning: sex/masturbation mentions in the first few minutes!
This week we tackle one of the best questions we’ve ever received: How can I get my friend to stop being so physical and touchy with me? Come for the advice, stay for the surprise fruit delivered to your office! This episode is not sponsored by Edible Arrangements but it should be. We’ll take sixty bucks for it.
