Each week, San Francisco psychotherapist Lily Sloane, along with featured guests, answers some of life’s tough questions. But they won’t just tell you how to get along better with your mother in law. They’ll talk about the role of patriarchy, sexism, capitalism, racism, and other kinds of oppression in our day to day personal struggles and what we need to do to fight the forces that keep us down.

    This is the final broadcast of Radical Advice as I move on to other kinds of audio work at the station and put this particular project to rest. It seemed like a good idea to focus on the incredible community that is BFF.fm by talking with DJ's who have become part of my support system, both creatively and emotionally. 
    Thank you for listening and participating. Every broadcast from the past 2.5 years is available in the archives to revisit. But you're allowed to feel sad that the show is gone. I know I am. Along with feeling relief.
    Since June 2017, this show has
    done 118 Broadcastsbrought on 86 Unique Guestsanswered ~208 life questionsI'm proud of the work and grateful to you and the BFF.fm community.

Love it

Great mix of banter, life advice and I even got some music finds from this. Lily and Brian are great hosts and thoughtful therapists, and I like the format of listener questions - makes it so relatable and interesting.
