Are you addicted to advice columns? Frustrated that there aren't more hours in the day to read and listen to even more advice columns? Terrified that you'll be ostracized from your friends and family for falling behind on all the week's best advice? Well, you've come to the right place! No, not a rehab facility—an advice podcast homepage! We're enablers.
Each week, advice column aficionados Han and Matt re-answer the greatest questions from other advice columns and podcasts as well as fielding new questions (send your questions for the podcast to firstname.lastname@example.org or anonymously at bit.ly/hanandmatt or to email@example.com for Han's written column). Topics include: relationships, sexuality, roommates, workplace, health, culture, politics, and everything in between. These are the advice columnists who are most frequently cited on the show, including Dear Prudence, Ask Amy, Ask a Manager, Captain Awkward, and many more.
