Hey ya'll - great to be in your ear holes again! In this especially wine soaked edition of FNA, we discuss what we did on our (latest) podcast vacation, read a letter from a listener managing concerns from their partner on a potential change of scenery. At one point the lights go out, Kendra reveals her morbid future plans and BONUS QUESTION. Please, sit back, relax and black out with us...
It's not you - it's us. We're back, bitches! After an extended absence we're really trying to get our shit together and thus we present you with the following episode recorded a few months back. Thank you for your patience (or forgetting this was a thing you listened to). This episode that time forgot features questions about moving and relationships - along with a surprise We're Judging You segment. We'll never leave you like that again - we promise.* (*Not an actual promise) Mwah.
After an inexplicable hiatus (chock full of sickness, job changes and assorted chicanery) we're back! In this episode, the heathens have taken ill, and we answer questions about reconnecting with a former flirtation and dating a doormat dad (and his kids). Conversation devolves into parenting philosophies, movie theater strategery and other nonsense. Good to be back! Please continue to send your questions via FridayNightAdvice.com - bye ya'll.
Holy schnikes - we've got a special guest ya'll! Kendra's BFFFF Macey joins the FNA gang for some a dating related question for a recent divorcé looking for some play (she's out of her element, Donnie). Come for the advice, stay for the pathetic pleas for sponsorship. Also, everything you believe about podcasting is a lie.
The gang is back to their usual shenanigans. Questions include how to stay busy and use time well when starting a new job, and about the mystery of a baby daddy's secret origin and it's affect on a potentially hormone laden spouse. If you've ever lusted after listening to someone read their 23 And Me profile, well you're going to lose your mind on this one. Everyone else: you'll also likely lose your mind, but in the other way. It's a win win.
"We're back, bitches!"
"Well that's sort of rude..."
"What's it to you? No one reads this shit anyways..."
"Ok. Great attitude. And it's been what - three weeks without an episode? What the hell have you been doing?"
"Ok McConaughey... So anyways, what's this episode about?"
"Revisiting New Years resolutions primarily and then the usual nonsense. Kendra's are inspiring, Matt promises to resist positivity and Melissa's getting crafty...who listens to this shit anyway?"
"I honestly do not know."

Tonight's episode brings season one to a close. Kendra updates us on her on-going work/life balancing act, the gang answers a question about caring for an aging parent, and a listener shares an article on royal etiquette inspiring some...unique takes. Fun fact: Kendra carries a dog bed sometimes. Happy Friday and happy holidays - see you in 2018, bitches. XOXO
Yeah, it's Saturday Night, not Friday - but you know what, life's hard. In this episode, topics discussed include what is the best size of box for a corpse, dealing with co-workers who besides being annoying take credit for others' work, and a new Dad's first Christmas chock full of in-law drama. Hold onto your beanies - Kendra is trigger happy, Melissa is the master of the transition and Matt's gassy.

Unbutton your pants and take a load off as the gang recaps Thanksgiving. A question about work, life, and boss relationships is tackled - and we receive a listener update on a question from episode 8. Highlights include regional food, Massachusetts law, wedding memories and the sound of wine pouring. I'm ready for a nap.
Sorry ya'll - this one's late. And yes, we can count, but this is...a very special episode. It occurred to us that we never explained the inception of this adorable little pod. So this is our Episode Zero or Nine. Or whatever. Along with our humble beginnings we talk about some of the best advice we've received and tell some tales. We'll be back with the usual format next week but we hope you enjoy this sidebar.

Buckle up, nerds - episode three is all advice, all the time. Listeners write in about dealing with ignorant in-laws, spiffing up their smell-space and propositioning pals for praise. All that and one of the FNA gang reaches out for advice. Fuck it, we'll do it live.
In our second episode, the gang answers listener questions about strengthening bonds with siblings, dating an occasional smoker, and party arrival decorum. Also - Kendra gets pissed and Melissa gives Dear Abby a piece of her mind. This episode is brought to you by #daddyissues, and early bedtimes. Clear eyes, full hearts, fuck you Netflix.
