The trouble began when Sarah put a fern in front of her new condo. Nice, right? The woman who lives in the unit above didn’t think so, and without warning sent Sarah a slew of passive-aggressive notes. Sarah thinks it’s all a big misunderstanding, but now her neighbor refuses to even speak to her. Sarah is wracked with anxiety, struggling to sleep, and contemplating moving out. On this episode of How To!, we turn to stand-up comedian Tig Notaro, a cancer survivor and host of the new advice podcast Don’t Ask Tig, to help Sarah approach the situation with humor and clarity. When things don’t go your way, Tig says, you have to take back control of your own story. What would the hero in your favorite movie do? For Sarah, this means gardening with headphones and the Rocky theme on the soundtrack.  And a special birthday we'd like to celebrate...

One American in five takes care of another family member or loved one. That's more than 53 million family caregivers in America. Members of this vast, largely invisible workforce were already under pressure prior to the coronavirus pandemic. Many were forced to choose between inflexible or unsupportive work environments, and caring for loved ones who need care. These caregivers are not supported by public policy – the emergency paid family leave law Congress passed last spring actually excluded those caring for aging or chronically ill loved ones. And many people, including those in the so-called sandwich generation, never get a break to take care of themselves. As the pandemic rages, and with a coming aging crisis, how do we begin to care for our family caregivers? Host:Brigid Schulte, Director, Better Life Lab at New America Guests: Debbi Simmons Harris, A family caregiver in Minnesota who had to stop working to care for her son, who has required complex medical care for more than two decades. Jennifer Olsen, DrPH,Executive Director of the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving. Jessica Mills, A family caregiver in Georgia who put off her college plans to care for her mother with dementia. Karen Lindsey Marshall, J.D. Director, Advocacy & Engagement, National Alliance for Caregiving. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

I'm so angry at Facebook's decision to run lies in political ads that I deleted it but my elderly parents use it so I was forced to keep the lite version except if someone wants me to look at, they have to text me first. My teenager and her friends would not be caught dead on Facebook and I will make sure I do everything to educate her about what an unethical dirty platform it is and how it willfully hurt American elections. In a country where the wealth gap is criminal and public education so wanting that poor people dont even speak English anymore, business ethics and principled action should be a priority. It is the big questions that people care about, not the difficulties of managing inner bureaucracies.

Wow, I didn't realize so many other people felt the same way I do until I read these reviews. If Slate were just Andy Bowers reading the interesting articles and commentary it would be one of the best podcasts out there – but the GABFEST needs to go (which it now does in my iTunes, I download the podcasts, keep the "Andy's" and delete the "Gabbers"). When I was reading the other reviewer's comments where he described them as "high schoolers" it finally dawned on me what it was the Gabbers reminded me of. Remember the 'nerd group' on the movie 'Dazed and Confused'? This emotionally transparent group could be them a few years later; Pompous, self indulgent journalism students running around Washington making sarcastic comments among themselves about a crowd they all secretly want to be a part of. SEND MORE ANDY!!

5 Stars to the original format of tightly-written, detailed articles with straight-forward presentation. 0 Stars to the recent increase in "Gabfests." I know we must wade through podcast-commercials, and I accept that as a price of admission. But the gabfest trend is unfortunate. Each Gabfests tacks on up to another 2 minutes of participant pillow-fluffing, ad-hoc insider goofing and random giggling. Eventually, when the gabfesters finally make their way to the actual conversation portion of the podcast, they sometimes only marginally penetrate the surface of any topic.
