On this episode Kate and Sally talk about Christmas and whether Santa Claus is real, and if so does he have a master key to your apartment? Then they talk about comedian Josh Gondelman’s (@joshgondelman) essay for The Cut about how being in a relationship means your partner’s enemies become your enemies. They also discuss Native comedian Joey Clift’s (@joeytainment) essay for the AV Club about confronting two white podcast hosts on air about tokenization (and much more). Finally they answer a listener email about how to talk to a parent who is skeptical of using meds long term for mental health.
