    Succulents and Ferns

    Best friends, college buds, road trip friends... you can be all of these things! Or none of them! This week, a listener wrote in after they took a hard look at a decades-long friendship and found that it just wasn't what he thought it was. Their old friend just doesn't initiate convos or hang-outs or seem to love them quite the same! Let's discuss having friends who don't treat you quite as you hoped. (Content warnings for brief mention of blood. Raw-doggin’ snails. Trin singing Marvin Gaye instead of Al Green.)
