The “Must You Yell?” Edition

The way my husband expresses his emotions scares me. Help!

Episode Notes

Prudence is joined this week by Maddy Court, a writer and zine-maker. Her first book, The Ex-Girlfriend of My Ex-Girlfriend Is My Girlfriend, an almanac of relationship advice for queer women with art and comics by Kelsey Wroten, is forthcoming from Chronicle Books.

Prudie and Court discuss a letter writer who’s wondering how to stop her husband from yelling when about injustice or politics, and another letter writer who is wondering how much she should share honestly about two ex-friends, when these stories might get back to them.
