Originally launched in 2016, Nobody Asked Me But Let Me Tell You is back and revamped to address a whole new world full of pandemic problems we never could have imagined back in 2016!
Every week, Charlie offers solutions to some of life’s most daunting problems, plucked from popular advice columns and trending topics across the internet on a range of topics including pandemic problems, personal development, relationships, career growth and the future.
Charlie (and occasional guests) also explores how we can become better problem-solvers and how we can learn how to give and receive good advice.

Help: I Think My Employees are Trashing Me on Slack
This week's problem is from a manager who is feeling rejected by his employees who he believes are trashing him on the company’s messaging platform.
The problem was submitted to Business Insider’s career advice column (I’m a boss, and I’m worried my team is talking about me behind my back).
Charlie explores how this boss can create a more healthy office culture (something many companies are struggling with in the new post-pandemic, hybrid workforce!).

Welcome to the Reboot of My Advice Podcast
There is nothing more exhilerating than a comeback (but don’t call it a comeback!).
After a 5-year haitus where we saw the rise and fall of Donald Trump as president, a global pandemic, and the collapse of systems and social order that has shocked us all, I have decided to bring the podcast back but with a revamped mission and purpose.
In this episode, I explain why I decided to bring the podcast back and how this season will be different than the first (and only!) season.

EP 27: Advice for an Atheist Who Is Afraid of Dying
February 15, 2017
It has been a few months since we’ve had a show. The last episode was back in November (the Carrie Fisher episode, sadly). I’m back with a new, shorter format and more problems to solve!
This problem was sent in to Ask Andrew WK at the Village Voice by an atheist who is struggling to tell his religious family that he no longer believes in God, and who now fears dying and being disconnected from them forever. Heavy.
