    Minisode 34 - The Pet Name Conundrum

    Minisode 34 - The Pet Name Conundrum

    Liz and Tom don their relationship counselor caps and do their best to help out friends of the show in their pursuit of love and happiness. With next to no qualifications.


    Would you believe that you still have questions and Liz and Tom still have vaguely informed answers? In this week's show we try and iron out dating anxiety for a Dear Reader, another Reader seems held hostage by a pet-name and a few romance clichés are broached and subsequently dismissed...


    If any topics or stories are ever relatable to you and you are comfortable sharing we would love to hear from you! Same goes for those of you with dating stories to share with the world. Get in touch at ghostsofboyfriendspast@gmail.com and check out other shows at That's Not Canon Productions


    xoxo Liz and Tom
