In this episode, Taimur acts as a relationship therapist and digs into the (strictly platonic, for the record) relationship between Ali and his roommate Molly. We discuss their feelings about living with one another, things about Ali that wind Molly up, causes of conflict in the relationship, tips for effectively communicating grievances and a wholesome segment where we discuss the things we've learned from each other.

Here are the links to Molly's food blog and Instagram page:

And here is the link to the incredible forum thread that we've mentioned on the podcast before which is a group of people discussing the idea of emotional labour:
