The “Family Rumors” Edition

My side of the family keeps “joking” that I’m having inappropriate relationships with my brothers-in-law. Help!

Episode Notes

Prudence is joined this week by Chau Tu, a writer, podcast producer, and the editor of Slate Plus.

Prudie and Tu discuss a letter writer who’s wondering how to address a brother who apologized for groping her as children, but she has no memory of it, and another letter writer who’s wondering how to support her family, even though they’re always making cruel jokes about her husband and his family.

Production by Phil Surkis.
