Big Mood, Little Mood

The “Moving for Mom” Edition

My husband wants to move back abroad to take care of his mother. I don’t want to uproot our lives. Help!


Episode Notes

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

Prudie and Tu tackle letters about what to do when your husband wants the two of you to move abroad to care for his mother and you don’t want to go, what to consider when you suspect your sister doesn’t really need the wheelchair she uses, how to meet people after an extended period of social isolation, and what to do when you’re estranged from your sister but want to maintain connections to her children.

Production by Phil Surkis.
