EDITOR’S NOTE: Liza Featherstone’s advice column Asking for a Friend ran from 2015 to 2020. You can read the archives here.
If you’re reading The Nation, you’re a leftist in a mean monied world. This creates one conundrum after another. Should you call an Uber or hail a cab? How do you prevent your boss from treating you like garbage? Can you date that extremely good-looking man who voted to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain? What if he promises not to tweet?
You need help! I am here to provide rigorously reported, intelligent, and humane advice. A longtime journalist and columnist—not to mention a mother, Facebook addict, and Family Dollar shopper—I too grapple with the day-to-day struggles of living ethically under capitalism. I’ve been offering unpaid advice for decades and could not be more delighted to offer my skills to Nation readers.
