Totally Married Podcast

Episode 286

Elizabeth and Andy discuss Andy’s recent Craigslist purchase and subsequent sale, whether or not to stain an Ikea purchase before giving their unqualified advice to listener questions about how to get over a chronic crush, how to speak to and raise children around spirituality and religion, and how to broach the subject of becoming parents with a spouse who seems eternally reluctant? Enjoy!


FRED says:

Why the hemming and hawing on the girl with the crush? She should approach him and ask him out. Then she’ll know the answer and can move on either way.

Liz says:

Regarding the The Farm, I’m sure you already know this but since you didn’t mention it I thought I would make sure. There’s a good documentary on The Farm called American Commune.

Maureen says:

Hi Elizabeth and Andy,

I have an idea for a new segment at the end of your show. Since Andy is so musically-inclined, I thought it would be cool if he gave an album recommendation each week. When he paused at the end of this week’s episode and said he felt like there was something left to say, I thought, “Music rec!”

My New Year’s Resolution was to expand my music taste. I like electronica and pop. Basically, anything good for running.

Can we add Andy’s Album to the show?


Tammy says:

Unitarian Universalism is a great choice for someone who wants their kids to have the community of the church without the dogma. Here’s a brief description from Wikipedia: Unitarian Universalists believe that each person is free to search for his or her own personal truth on issues, such as the existence, nature, and meaning of life, deities, creation, and afterlife. UUs can come from any religious background, and hold beliefs and adhere to morals from a variety of cultures or religions.

I have been UU for 4 years now and my favorite tongue in cheek description is “atheism for people with children”. I love that our church is based around social justice and not dogma. Our daughter had a “naming ceremony” that kept all the religious grandparents happy but still felt meaningful to my husband and I.

Veronica says:

Yes to what Tammy says! I kept thinking during this segment, “They should check out the UU!”
I am not a UU but did go for a while. If I ever felt that I needed to go to a church it would be a UU church.
