The truth is - we’re millennials and adulting is hard but, hey, at least we got great friends. It hasn't always been that way. We learned to navigate bad friendships, understand our own needs and set boundaries (are we the queens of boundaries? YES!) Having any type of relationship takes work and when your friendships are as deep as family, it's important to have tough conversations.
In this extra-long episode, we had the absolute pleasure of chatting with Al McNutt - a long-time community advocate and Executive Director of Northern Health Connections Society. Al discusses all things harm reduction including sex education, needle distribution, and meeting people where they are at. “It's all about taking care of one another in this world”
