Customer Reviews

Long time listener turned off

I can’t listen to this anymore after the latest episode which essentially had a segment that said “people do this awful thing (drunk driving), and I myself do this awful thing, but people who talk about it specifically in front this letter writer are arseholes”. So I’m taking Daniel’s advice! I get to choose who I let into my life and I get to avoid someone who thinks that air conditioning is an antidote to drunk driving and patronises their audience with “your concern is misguided”. No, your cavalier attitude toward something that kills people is what’s misguided.

I love this podcast

This podcast is super entertaining while also being very thoughtful and of course touching on lots of very relatable topics. The host is 👌🏻 and it's very inclusive of all people- LGBT people (including trans people! 🙌🏻), people of faith, etc.

Loving, wise and whimsical advice

I listen to quite a few advice podcasts (I’m also a fan of Savage Love and Dear Sugar) but I find Dear Prudence the most comforting, with Mallory’s combination of enthusiasm and joie de vivre, with her focus on kindness, empathy and boundaries – alongside some more amusing and ridiculous tangents.
