    Emotionally abusive relationships and other listener dilemmas with Joanne and Steve

    This week we had listeners send in some questions and dilemmas. We chatted about two of them. One was about how to talk to your friend about your perception that their partner is emotionally abusive. The other is about finding out your friend's boyfriend is still on dating apps. But first we chat about the Irish government disaster, our own covid frustrations and an unplanned chat about male and female anatomy that ended up being hilarious. We finish the ep with a wee relationship update from Des.
