Each week hosts Lisa Sandell and Aimee Friedman grapple with one of their anxieties—from the trivial to the existential—in a humorous and heartfelt way. From germs to mortality, they’re tackling it all, helped along the way by smart and entertaining guests who offer perspective and advice.

This week, Lisa and Aimee are anxious about the state of the world. They are joined by novelist Anne Roiphe, who talks to them about learning to handle everything the universe throws your way, about writing angry letters to her relative, Roy Cohn, and about meeting a cute Israeli soldier at the Metropolitan Museum.
