Long before Cheryl Strayed’s runaway bestseller Wild made it to the big screen, she was working as an anonymous advice columnist for The Rumpus. Her heartfelt column, Dear Sugar, answered letters that explored the depths of people’s weaknesses, heartbreaks, jealousies and despairs (the column stopped in 2012, but we promise the archives are totally worth reading—just make sure you have a tissue handy). Today, you can find Dear Sugar on Boston’s WBUR. Writers Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond offer their wisdom and experiences to all kinds of important questions. This is a must listen–whether or not you’re in the market for relationship advice.
Lena Dunham and Jenni Conner hit a home run with HBO’s Girls. Then, they combined all their trademark candor and applied it to a weekly, long form e-newsletter. This feminist staple boldly faces the modern world and the women who are contributing to it (there’s even a piece about a vajacial). At its core, Lenny is about women and the complexities of their relationships with each other and with themselves delivered weekly to your inbox.
