18 mins | May 10, 2022

Today's episode from 10th May 2022. After a leaked Supreme Court document suggested millions of US women could lose the legal right to abortion, we get a glimpse into a post Roe Vs Wade world. We hear from the organiser of an online community bringing together 'Reddit Aunties', who volunteer to help house, transport and care for those needing abortions. Then later, as life speeds up again after the great pause of the pandemic, are you becoming inundated with offers and invitations to do things? We'll show you how to say "no", in order to rebuild your social life in a more balanced and meaningful way. The leaked draft from the US Supreme Court about the decision to overturn Roe v Wade has raised many concerns about the future of abortion practices in the country. For The Washington Post, Pranshu Verma examines the critical role anonymous groups like the 'Reddit Aunties' might play in the near future, as people resort to informal networks to assist those locked out of an abortion. If we want to rebuild lives that are more balanced and meaningful, we need to prioritize. Declining requests is crucial, says relationship columnist Elizabeth Bernstein in The Wall Street Journal.
