This week’s mini episode finds Prudence joined by Soleil Ho, the San Francisco Chronicle’s restaurant critic. She’s written for food and pop culture publications like Bitch, Food & Wine, Taste, and Wine Enthusiast and hosted podcasts like Popaganda and Racist Sandwich.

Prudie and Ho dig into letters about how to handle a friend who is prone to seizures yet insists on driving, and what to know when your partner plans to breastfeed your child for much longer than you thought.
