Episode 307

Elizabeth and Andy discuss a recent harrowing social experience at Le Pain Quotidien as well as the new levels of hell for Elizabeth that is going to Ikea. Then they give their unqualified advice to listener questions about coping with success jealousy in a serious relationship, how to navigate a difficult mother in law on behalf of your sister in law after having a baby, and how to deal with a brother in law who is a trash bag, potentially bordering on being an abusive one? Enjoy!


Eddie says:

I recommend reading Reza Aslan’s Zealot to get the real story in what a political concoction the Bible is and how far it is from the point of Jesus’ teaching.

Meghan says:

Panera Bread didn’t buy out Saint Louis Bread Co. They are the same company and in St. Louis they are still called Bread Co. The menu is exactly the same at both.

Menu items have changed over time but mostly for the better- the menu is clean meaning it is free of artificial preservatives, sweeteners and flavors and no colors from artificial sources.

Lauren says:

Elizabeth you should know Bread Co. and Panera are the same company being from St. Louis. I pass their headquarters daily. Love me some Bread Co. 🙂

Jealousy can be pretty debilitating, especially when the people you’re jealous of complain about problems you WISH you were dealing with. My general approach is to always take a step back, try to take other people out of the equation, and think “Where am I compared to 1 year ago today?” USUALLY there is something that if the me from 1 year ago would be jealous of.

Speaking of which (please forgive this shameless plug): I’m the transgender listener who’s email was read a few months ago–mostly just about being generally dissatisfied with my life. It’s still not great, BUT within the past year I wrote/directed/animated a short video about gender identity for the non-profit It’s targeted for ages 10-14 but I hope anyone can take something from it. It is currently competing for prize money (that, if I would, would make a dramatic impact on my life at this time). If you could watch, vote, and share it would mean the world to me.
