Big Mood, Little Mood

The “Blood or Marriage?” Edition

My husband hates my brother and wants me to choose between them. Help!


Episode Notes

Prudence is joined this week by Natalie Walker, a performer and writer.

Prudie and Walker tackle letters about donating an inheritance to a struggling colleague, how to handle your anonymous Twitter account that has now become a contentious public forum, what to consider when your husband demands that you choose between him or your family, how to address your students who have experienced family deaths, and what to do when your soon-to-be mother-in-law throws out the only photos you had of your pregnant girlfriend who died in a car accident. Plus, Prudie and Walker discuss a voicemail from someone who’s wondering how to stop the passive-aggressive slights coming from her mother-in-law.
