Episode Notes

Danny Lavery welcomes Anna Rubanova and Adam Bozarth, founding members of the sketch comedy group Left Handed Radio. They are also both producers at the Forever Dog podcast network.

Lavery, Rubanova, and Bozarth tackle two letters. First, one from a woman who is wondering how to get her boyfriend to stop making insensitive comments. Another letter writer needs help procuring weed for the first time. Plus, a lightning round about when friends ask you to keep their infidelities a secret.
