This episode is brought to you in collaboration with Evelyn Roger Beauty + Skincare, on a mission to inspire, to educate, and to create clean, green, badass skincare.

Today's podcast is full of fantastic resources, so make sure you check out everything in the list below! The extra-long introduction tiptoes around the essay topic because it's a tough one. This week I found out my childhood priest was named in another Catholic sexual misconduct report. I've got all kinds of feelings around this news and I worked some of it out in writing. That's today's essay.

Our guest Jillian Richardson is the founder of The Joy List, a newsletter full of opportunities to make friends. Jillian is passionate about bringing people together and eradicating loneliness and I'm so glad there are people in this world like her. We chat about the inspiration behind her work (which involves adult summer camp!), the awkwardness of friend dates, and cultivating meaningful friendships that turn into chosen family.

He walked away and hasn't been seen since.
