We tried to fight it, we held off for weeks, but, y’all…we need to talk about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Spoilers ahead!
(We honestly feel this is one of our best episodes we’ve ever done, please listen even if you don’t give a fuck about Star Wars!)
Inspired by (a.k.a. enraged by) the CNN Democratic Debate on January 14, 2020, we decided to do a bonus episode this week to talk about key points we wish the candidates and moderators were addressing, as well as our thoughts about the Warren-Sanders drama and the SJW reaction online.
We’re back this week to answer our next two listener questions regarding family advice: one about dealing with the death of a loved one who passed before they could grow beyond their bigotry, and the second about practicing restorative justice with someone who just can’t seem to change.
This week, we answer the first (two) of a series of questions about family. Shit gets real, and dark, and real dark. We work our way through these related questions by bringing in our own experiences with emotional abuse. It’s a heavy but important conversation, with loads of dark humor along the way. Plus, a very long tangent about true-crime TV. Content warning for descriptions of actions by deeply emotionally abusive parents.
