We have a major announcement up top so be sure to tune in!

Today on the episode we center… YOU! We asked for your listener questions and wow, you delivered. In this episode, we answer questions about pursuing a PhD and career advance, dealing with imposter syndrome, taking unprescribed “academic performance enhancing medications,” love bombing and giving cis het men the cheat codes to your heart, dating bisexual men, moving in together before marriage, getting help without involving the police, not making abolition about your feelings, learning from our elders, and making it less acceptable to record people in public.

Join us on Patreon to hear answers to some of the questions we weren’t able to get to!
