    Absolutely delightful–I wouldn’t mind a follow up episode at all 😉

    It’s really frightening how common gaslighting is…and how we’re constantly told to mistrust our feelings. I’m glad to hear Janie worked through her issues. You might have read this already, but here’s a great article on the matter: http://thecurrentconscience.com/blog/2011/09/12/a-message-to-women-from-a-man-you-are-not-%E2%80%9Ccrazy%E2%80%9D/
    It was even reposted on HuffPo 🙂

    I’ve been powering through the recent episodes and as always–wonderful. Thank you, Janet!

    That letter she wrote to her brother when she was a teen is too awesome.

  4. Alec says:

    Janet, if Chris pokes fun of you for this, should should get the intrepid Nerdist producer Katie to dig up the episode where he pined over the bookcases you two had.

    Also, I’ll add to the pile of youtube links- this one fits with the ‘crazy hormonal love’ and French chat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDOiWOlltzI

    A shack in Paris in the 60’s… reminds me of this song.
