The “Weed Thief” Edition

My boyfriend witnessed my friend of 18 years secretly taking some of my marijuana, even though I’m usually happy to give her some. Help!

Episode Notes

In this week’s mini episode, Prudence is joined by Peyton Thomas, a freelance journalist and video game writer based in Toronto. His writing has appeared in Vanity Fair, Billboard, and Pitchfork.

Prudie and Thomas discuss a letter writer who’s wondering how to handle his anger toward his newly pro-life sister, what to consider when you desperately want another child and your spouse doesn’t, and what to do when you accidentally discover that your lifelong friend has been stealing your weed.
