    God Bless Nancy

    What are you supposed to do when someone you barely know surprises you with a gift? What if the gift is a terrible painting? No, wait: what if it's a terrible painting that they made themselves? This one's about what to do when you don't know what to do. Nancy, help us.

    That's Gonna Be No From Us

    So, how was your holiday? Awesome? Terrible? Let's listen to someone else's problems for awhile. Our first question reads, "I came between a friend's marriage. Therapy was had, I sincerely apologized, we moved on. It's been two years. Can I reach out and rekindle our friendship?"

    Yikes-A-Roni

    Befriending your colleagues can be tricky. Especially if your colleagues happen to find your Twitter account. This episode is about Personal Twitter, Work Twitter, and when maybe you should just lock your account and throw your computer into the eye of a hurricane.

    A Hot Meal and A Warm Bath

    Jenn has a cold, Trin wants a haircut, and we both have advice for a new listener who is lonely and has frankly been through some tough shit. This episode is about making new friends after a bad break up, filling your empty hours, making your apartment feel nice, deciding when to date again, and when to give your beef to a friend. Content warning for brief mention of masturbation mid-episode.

    We'll Complain For You

    “My boyfriend is close friends with a sexist ass. I’m trying to be civil. How do I proceed here?” Well we have some ideas! We would not call our ideas particularly civil. In this week's episode, allow us to get mad on your behalf.

    Let's Get Mystical About This Shiz

    Our first question asks, "I made a close friend online months ago. But my partner has no idea. It's been going on for months. How can I clue my partner in without feeling guilty for hiding it from him?" This episode is a bumpy thrill ride and we've almost certainly lost one listener, perhaps two.

    Gender is Weird in Los Angeles

    In this very special episode, we consider how you can best support your non-binary friends. Discussion of pronouns, gender spectrums, and why we let boys run into the street but not girls for some reason. A million thanks to Ian and Maya for guesting!

    Drop a Smoke Bomb and Run

    This week's theme is all about confrontation! Bringing up the thing that's bothering you! Our starting question: "My best friend has been in a long-distance relationship and it's making him SO UNHAPPY. I think they need to break up. Should I say as much?" and then we move into "I worked for a photographer for a weekend. I got payment but not the social media shout-out that he mentioned." Content warning, we muse over sex toys for a bit and now it's unclear why.
