Dear Prudence: Not A Good Look

Prudence is joined this week by Faran Krentcil, the editorial director of The Newsette and editor-at-large for She lives in New York City with her life partner, a vintage leopard print coat from Paris. 
Prudie and Krentcil tackle letters about what to do when your boyfriend casually reveals he wore blackface in college, how to act around your sister after seeing her presence in a porn film, what to consider when your husband makes a hobby out of drinking beer, how to let friends know that you are once again transitioning to a more androgynous look, what to do when you find yourself keeping your fridge filled with food you don’t eat.
Slate Plus members get an additional mini-episode of Dear Prudence every Friday. Sign up now to listen. 
Join us for a live Dear Prudence at The Bell House in Brooklyn on Thursday, April 23rd at 7:30PM! Tickets
