Big Mood Little Mood

The “Gateway Mom” Edition

I’m worried my wife’s pot smoking is a bad influence on our kids. Help!


Episode Notes

Prudence is joined this week by Max Jacobs, a radio and podcast producer based in New York. Long ago, he helped produce this show.

Prudie and Jacobs dig into letters about what to do when a neighbor’s cigarette smoke creeps into your apartment, how to cope with your mom’s passive-aggressive behavior, what to do when your privileged partner complains about his job, and whether your wife should be more careful about hiding her pot smoking from the kids.

Got a question for Prudie? Send it to or leave a voicemail message at 401-371-DEAR (3327), and you may hear your question answered on a future episode of the show.

Production by Phil Surkis.
