Episode 110: Not Taking the Hint
You're just not that into her, and she has no radar for this kind of thing. She's perfectly nice if a little intrusive (or a lot intrusive), and you don't want to hurt her feelings, but COME ON, LADY! GET THE HINT! The Ladies discuss this and receive a most touching letter about great friendship in a time of need.
Can I Change My Sister?
When your sister pees on your parade at every opportunity, then tells you you're too sensitive, is it possible to come to terms with her? ARE you too sensitive? The Ladies discuss! Plus, an Embarassing Personal Pregnancy Problem, our first of its kind!
Episode 108: Breaking Up the Band
You've been part of a friend group for years…and now there's that problem person. Can you talk to her about it and avoid hurt feelings? Um…probably not, but you might have to talk anyway. Special guest this week: The Princess weighs in with her millennial wisdom and shares tips on not visiting Mexico in monsoon season.
Episode 107: Should I Tell?
You have a piece of information from Friend A. But Friend B, who is much closer to Friend A, hasn't been let in on the news! Awkward, yes. What's your role here? Also, an epic Embarrassing Personal Problem from Joss, who can never go back to that place. Ever.
Episode 106: Mixed Messaging
Why doesn't she get the hint that the friendship is over? Maybe because you keep reaching out! Who's to blame in this extremely crappy friend dynamic? Plus, an Embarrassing Personal Problem for the ages.
Episode 105: Will Cat Hair Be the End of Us?
Two letters this week, listeners! One: her oldest friend keeps "rescheduling." Is this a red flag or an easy conversation? Two: Does Daisy really disapprove of Cat Hair Lady's wardrobe and style, or is Cat Hair Lady the one who's judging herself? Plus, Kristan tries to break into another car.
These are my people!
Jos and Kristan listen, care, and contribute to making us better friends—better people, too.
Love the Ladies!
I’ve never been a podcast person. All of my friends were listening to these podcasts (mostly about weight loss and serial killers), and I tried to get into it with them, but all of the podcasts I tried gave me a headache. Then, I ran across this podcast when checking out Kristan Higgins’s website (love her as an author!) and had to try it. I was hooked! The Ladies are hilarious and give really great advice. Listening feels like gossiping with friends (in a good way) and always puts a smile on my face.
I usually listen while getting my workout in. I’ve never been the type of person who enjoys or looks forward to working out, especially when I have to workout alone, but Crappy Friends has totally changed that. I’ve been binging this podcast while I walk around the neighborhood, and I actually get excited to go for a walk everyday. It has totally made my daily walk feel less like a chore and more like “me time.” Thank you, Ladies!
Great advice, given with humor and compassion
BFFs Joss Dey and Kristan Higgins tackle listeners’ friendship debacles in their no-judgment bubble on this podcast that not only educates, but entertains.
