Big Mood Little Mood

The “Married to the Work” Edition

My wife needs me to review everything she does for her job. It’s exhausting. Help!


Episode Notes

Prudence is joined this week by Claire Cox, a writer, high school teacher, and author of the forthcoming novel Silver Beach.

Prudie and Cox dig into letters about what to do when your wife wants you to review all her work emails before she hits send, how to steer clear of your abusive mom so you can see your siblings, what to do when your boyfriend gets defensive when you make suggestions that could help him at work, and how to handle a cool reaction from colleagues at your decision to leave teaching in public school for private school.

Access all of Prudie’s podcasts and columns here.

Production by Phil Surkis.
