When Politics Is Personal: Friends & Family41:19


It's election season, and while politics may not seem like the domain of Dear Sugar Radio, it can become deeply personal.

In Part 1, the Sugars look at how politics can get in between our relationships with friends and family—whether it be our parents voting for a candidate we despise, or our friends sharing views we find abhorrent on social media. And sometimes political divisions can actually sever these important relationships, as in the case of a letter writer whom the Sugars bring on to tell her own story.

In Part 2, the Sugars look at what happens when politics get mixed up in our most intimate relationships.

New episodes of Dear Sugar Radio are released weekly.
