On this week’s episode, Carvell and Gabe discuss an accidental dirty joke fail while getting a Christmas tree and a rare bureaucratic triumph. Then, they take questions from listeners about how to deal with a son’s friend who is being a jerk but is also dealing with grief and what to think of your kid’s passionate - yet perhaps difficult - professional artistic ambitions. In Slate Plus, executive editor Allison Benedikt joins to discuss a Chanukah-related technological triumph.
