Episodes We Love: The Long Goodbye28:37


After four years of ministering to the lost, lonely and heartsick, the Sugars say farewell on this final episode of the podcast. We take a look back at some of our most powerful advice, hear from former guests, and talk to listeners about how the show has affected their lives.

We’ve had a diverse collection of guests on Dear Sugars: writers, musicians, doctors, even a presidential candidate; but all offered wisdom in an unpretentious way. In today’s episode, the Sugars listen and respond to voice mail messages from some of these guests, and recount cherished memories from their episodes.

We also get an update on a letter the Sugars answered in an episode titled “What About the Stepchildren?” The letter writer who called herself “Tired of Being Cinderella” recalls what it felt like to hear her letter read aloud, and we find out if she confronted her father about the abuse she endured at the hands of his wife.

Finally, the Sugars share what saying goodbye means to them, speaking with radical empathy straight into our ears, one last time.

This episode was originally released on September 1st, 2018.
