Episode Notes

Prudence is joined this week by Sarah Jaffe, the author of Work Won’t Love You Back and Necessary Trouble, both from Bold Type Books. She’s also the co-host, with Michelle Chen, of Dissent magazine’s Belabored podcast.

Prudie and Jaffe tackle letters about how to support your undocumented partner through their job search, what to consider when your partner stays in touch with her past abusive partners, and what to do when your childhood fib about having hearing loss follows you into adulthood.
