How to Give Sage Advice

The Culture Gabfest’s short guide to parenting, relationship, and career advice.

In the Slate Plus bonus segment of Wednesday’s edition of the Culture Gabfest, hosts Stephen Metcalf, Dana Stevens, and Julia Turner have advice on advice-giving: the recurring tips they offer, the counsel they’ve ignored, and the best advice they’ve received. From career advice to romantic counsel, when should you offer advice and when should you abstain?

Plus, Dana shares the one piece of parenting advice that she’s willing to offer.
