Conversation with advice columnist Amy Dickinson

Failing Boldly

My guest this week is Amy Dickinson, perhaps best known as the writer of the popular advice column “Ask Amy,” which is carried in over 150 newspapers and read by an estimated 22 million readers daily. In addition to her work as a writer, you may have also heard Amy on the NPR Quiz Show “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.” All of these experiences made for a fascinating conversation as Amy talks about juggling life as an advice columnist and her own experiences with parenthood and marriage. We also talk about her life of faith as Amy is a member of a United Methodist Church in her hometown in Freeville, New York. I’ve enjoyed all my Failing Boldly conversations but this was certainly one of my favorites. To learn more about her books or read her columns, you can go to her web site, amydickinson.com and also follow her on twitter, @askingamy.
