Elizabeth shares her good work news and talks about the thing that saved her anxious mind while waiting for the news (spoiler alert: It’s OPRAH) Then she and Andy discuss the latex glove mystery of their week before giving their incredibly unqualified advice to listener questions about navigating a tumultuous family relationship especially in front of your kids, how to deal with roommates who agreed to the rules and are now rebelling against them, and how to cope with trying to conceive anxiety as well as baby-name differences? Enjoy!
Happy Halloween Laimewads!! We start the episode with some excited news about future podcast plans! Then we discuss some spooky Hallow’s eve stuff – pumpkins, mummies, ghosts, oh my!! We end with our answers to listener questions about dealing with ghosts, and how to deal with the horror of being a true blue democrat in a very red town – now that’s terrifying! Enjoy!
TRIGGER WARNING!! Elizabeth and Andy discuss their memorable experiences from Halloween to Ghosts, as well as a big, intense discussion about sexual assault and misogyny in Hollywood and beyond. Then they give their unqualified advice to listener questions about whether or not it was childish to bounce from someone for forgetting a birthday, and if it’s morally okay to move in with someone when finances play a role in the choice? Enjoy!
Elizabeth and Andy discuss the merits/pitfalls of the concept of faking it til you make it, as well as share stories of their attempts at it! After a (hopefully) positive political pocket, they give their unqualified advice to listener questions about what to do to help an alcoholic mother and also protect yourself, and how to navigate anti depressants while trying to conceive, through pregnancy and beyond? Enjoy!
Today we discuss the art of meeting people where they are and why that’s so effing difficult! Also, more discussion about lice! (Oy vay!)
