Need Advice? Ask Emily Yoffe

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Slate's advice columnist, Emily Yoffe, aka Dear Prudence, will be answering your manners and morals questions and offering her advice throughout the summer on the Brian Lehrer Show. Our plan is to take an advice question from one of you each week and put you on the air with Emily. We'll also gather advice for you from other listeners too. So if you would like to be that person who gets to ask the question, please ask your question here in the comments section. (Reminder: If you'd like to remain anonymous, just choose a fake name. But we would want you to come on the air, so include your real email address so we can get in touch with you. Your email address will not be public.)
