S5 Ep437: How to Say “No” & A Game of “Disturbing Children’s Movie or Pagan Festival?"

If you find yourself having a hard time saying “no” to requests, obligations, or another coffee with another friend who needs another round of relationship advice, Kathleen is here for you! She’s armed herself with a list of ways to turn people down (professionally) so you can regain control over your schedule. But are some of them rude or simply direct? Then, Bethany has a new game where she’s describing scenarios and asking you to decide: is it the plot of a disturbing children’s movie or rituals from a pagan festival? (You may be surprised what characters make an appearance.) Then, Engineer Blair comes in to try an artisanal dog biscuit because why the hell not?
