About the Show


For the last three years, DD has ended each of her journal entries with a question that’s on her mind. Sometimes they’re small and specific (“when will I feel less shitty than I did this week?”), sometimes they’re much bigger (“what does accountability mean in the context of friendship?”), and usually they’re somewhere in between. Join DD each week as she talks to people in her life about a question from the journal archives.
