Albie and Chris Manzo have a new advice show. Kind of. We dig up old advice column questions and answer listener mail that we then try to answer, with the help of various friends and family members. More often than not, it goes off the rails and becomes something very far from what "Passionate in Pennsylvania" asked about. But we try.
The Don and Intern Jules are back...because if it ain't broke, don't fix it! We have some follow-ups on old questions, is there a "Podcast Jules" and a "Real Jules"?, when is it too old to go back to college, and holy crap this professional cuddling thing has gotten completely out of control.
