Caitlin Schiller talks to sex and relationship advice columnist Dan Savage. Savage is the author of four books, including American Savage, and a nationally syndicated column called Savage Love. Since 2006, his podcast, Savage Lovecast, has been regularly featured on the Apple Podcasts top charts.

In the interview, Savage explains why the best thing you can do for your relationships might be to lower expectations. Plus, how monogamy is a lot like snowboarding and why a nail in his head made him great at his job.

(There is swearing and sexual vocabulary in this episode. Careful around the kids.)

In the second segment, co-host Ben Schuman-Stoler joins Caitlin to make a must-have reading list. By the end of the episode, you’ll have a good idea of what you can read and do to simplify your sex life and relationships.
