In this episode, we’re focusing on the New & Noteworthy, with a review of FiveThirtyEight‘s new advice column that offers solutions to readers’ problems using a panel of experts and statistical data. Yeah baby, number-crunch those problems!
An employee with an embarrassing financial situation mistakenly shares her struggles with her boss. Now that the boss is all up in her biz, she wants the Boss to back off. Is there a way to do this without ruining the relationship or causing tension? Charlie addresses this and shares her own personal story about a past boss crossing boundaries.
Four men. Friends for life. They’ve seen each other through every major life-milestone, celebration, and tragedy. What happens when is betrayed by the others? Can the friendship survive? SHOULD it? Does this bromance stand a chance of lasting another 20 years? Charlie explores the delicate nuances of this complicated problem and offers her ultimate solution (and a recommendation to check out the great (but now defunct) Amazon original series, Mad Dogs, which deals with this topic and is a great show).
