    "I want to reconnect with a friend. She's blocked me on Facebook and we haven't talked in years. Where do I begin?" Stop right now, thank you very much. You don't need someone with a human touch. You need Trin and Jenn to come in and yell at the lizard in your brain!

    Jogging While Wearing Jeans

    "I want to be friends with more men, how can I make that happen?" is our first question. And our second: "My friend is trying to hook me up with a bit of a dud. Do I suck it up and go out?" You can prrrrrobably guess our answer to this but you should listen anyway because we discuss how to confront your friend about this scenario AND we get an exciting update on Trin's plants. Also, Jenn gets overexcited to talk about running for the first seven minutes, so feel free to skip if that's not your thing. (Content warnings: mentions of body shaming and being fat.)

    It Doesn’t Matter What Word It Is

    Your buds don’t get a pass to call you whatever words they want. A friend called our first asker a B Word (not Butthole), and then alleged that she is “sensitive” for being hurt by it. As you might have guessed, we take issue with this behavior. Then, we encourage our second asker to bone down on their friend. Please click the episode title to view the CWs in our show notes.
