    My Condolences 2.0

    My Condolences 2.0

    What to say in the wake of loss, besides the old cliché platitudes.
    A letter from a listener (by the name of Producer Ron) sparks a conversation about how to talk to someone after they've lost a loved one or experienced a tragedy. This one has it all, gang—laughs, cries, plus a healthy dose of our signature Grawlix raw sexuality.

El marinero salado ,

Valid educational advice

As a teacher who used to watch “Those Who Can’t,” I have always appreciated their satire of US education. But, if you’re a teacher, too, check out the episode “Those Who Can Give Good Advice” for some (unexpectedly) good advice on what makes a great teacher (and, many solid laughs).
