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

In Part 2, the Sugars wonder if romantic relationships can survive profound political differences. They take a question from a young woman who prides herself on being a strong feminist, and worries her boyfriend doesn't share her views. They also hear from a progressive Democrat who has married into a conservative Oklahoma family and is finding it increasingly difficult to stay silent about her true beliefs.

The Sugars are joined by the writer Samantha Dunn and her husband Jimmy Camp, a Republican political operative, who share their own experience as a politically divided partnership.


New episodes of Dear Sugar Radio are released weekly.
