One Bad Mother

What happens to a friendship when one friend suddenly has a baby, and the other remains child-free? This week, Biz and Theresa tackle questions about friendships submitted by our child-free listeners. From dealing with the crappy things that come out of new parents' mouths to trying to convince your friend that you really do want to hang out with her and her screaming baby, we try to take the pressure off by answering the questions that may feel hard to ask when friendships encounter big changes.

Way to go "Fun Home"! Such a better way to spend your time than watching "Jupiter Ascending", unless you're using drugs, then it's a toss up. This week, we explore the pros and cons of female boner medicine and why the FDA is suddenly so into her, and Arkan-sass Senator Jason Rapert has a full blown Facebook all caps meltdown when Conway City refuses to move their anti-Christian Pride Parade set to take place on the Lord's brunch time. Plus, we talk to comedy writer Emily Gordon about therapy, her new book, Super You, and how she feels about outdoor furniture. Let the haters begin!

Andy brings the case against his wife Virginia. Andy wants to share the spirit of Christmas and Santa all year long. Virginia wants to restrict it to the holiday season. Who's right? Who's wrong? (P.S. Parents who may be listening with children, this case deals with Santa! You catch our drift?)

Jeff Herbert named this week's case via the Judge John Hodgman Facebook page. Thanks, Jeff!
