Our questioner has been betrayed by their own mind and is now a prisoner to a swirling vortex of goth-pop inanity. Can we free them from this gulag of sound and ungodly image? Yes.Read More
Our questioner is an creative type, and loses all interest in the act of creation as soon as the deed is done. They need our help to stop their creations from sitting, unloved and alone, on the shelves. They are asking us, dear listener, us, how to do a marketing.Read More
Those ruddy-faced sprogs next door won't stop punting balls over your fence, violating the most basic tenets of communal living. But not to worry, we have some fixings that will sort that right out with a minimum of sharpened stick pits dug into your lawn.Read More
This week's questioner has that age-old dilemma - how to take a friendship and heave it over the line like a sack of metaphorical relationship potatoes into a relationship where there may or may not be potatoes. Complicating things: nerves, the internet, us.We will fix it though, you can be damn sure of that.Read More
Oversized furniture, hoarding, parental obligation and sentimentality collide in the form of a much-loved but unwanted sofa (or couch - hi, America!). We look at three ways to deal with the emotional fallout of a bizarrely universal experience.Read More
This week's questioner wants to expand their sexual horizons, and they're not too fussy whether that's multiple partners or in serial. Someone else is gettin' doinked is what we're saying here.
But how to do this and maintain the existing relationship? Is it possible to keep people from being hurt? And how exactly does one fit all this doinking into a busy modern life?
We will fix it.Read More
Our questioner suffers from occasional bouts of furious anger, and would like very much to keep them under control before they end up screaming, covered in kestrel blood on a roundabout. We'd like to avoid that too, so for you, dear listeners, and for the kestrels, we will fix it.Read More
Autumn is here, and with it comes the sadness, at least in this week's questioner. Surely we can't fix an entire season? Oh, you poor poor things. We will FIGHT a season. For you. To fix it.Read More
If you're the go-to support for a friend's problems, it can be hard to know what to do and how to weather the emotional labour required. Luckily, we're the experts here and we've got ideas.Read More
This week's questioner has a testy relationship with their parents, and seeks our advice on how to deal with the dreaded filial responsibilities when they pop by for a visit. It's emotionally fraught, and that's before you even get to some very strong opinions about cake.
Sometimes it can be warm. Not often, but it can. If you struggle with this sort of thing, what are some options to cool off? Not air conditioning or that sort of thing. Nothing so simple. Join us on a journey into the HUMAN MIND and also some slightly better advice about fans.Read More
Our listener is presented with a dilemma - in order to effectively Do A Business, it is incumbent upon them to chat in a casual and carefree manner with colleagues. Alas, the vomiting blood and the fear sweats get in the way. What succour can we, as fixers, provide?Read More
This week's asker suffers anxiety from anxiety brought on by a co-worker's apparently ceaseless fury at everybody and everything. Can we help? Of course we can, and our advice ranges from the gently vengeful to the needlessly biological. As ever, it is extremely helpful.Read More
Our questioner has a school reunion coming up, one they'd like to spice up with some shenanigans. But how to balance fun and emotional well-being? With our boundless wells of both creativity and compassion, we will fix it.Read More
Sooner or later, everybody dies. But some people have been real dicks along the way. This week, we look at the knotty problem of getting stiffed with end-of-life care for relatives you just don't like all that much. We ask who owes what to who (spoilers: nobody, nowt, nobody) and how you can either stay functional, or make your peace with walking away.
Do you want children? No, of course not. But this week's questioner does, so how might we help them stay off the sauce for long enough to gestate? How do they ease out of a pub-centric social life, and give up alcohol for nine long, dull, dry months of maternity? How, in short, do they fire forth their crotch-fruit unpickled?
This week's questioner wants to learn to love the cockroaches they find themselves suddenly living with and asks us: how? How to love the cockroach? Asking why might also have been a good idea.Read More
In which our heroes fight normalising social pressure in order to discover when it's OK to feminise men for money. It's a minefield of gender theory and good intentions, and we intend to cross it with most of our limbs intact.Read More
Our questioner finds themselves torn between two countries, unable to fully integrate into either. How to adapt, or at least, how to make it work? Can we parlay our totally dissimilar experiences into useful advice? Probably not, but just try and stop us.Read More
This week we're continuing our journey into those little peculiarities, those oddnesses that you're not sure you share with the world at large. We'll give you a strong yes or no and put you at ease, as we are wont to do.Read More
