For the past several years, heartfelt, sometimes tormented emails have been pouring into the inbox of Dear Sugar, the advice columnist for the online literary magazine "The Rumpus." Sugar -- recently revealed as bestselling memoirist and novelist Cheryl Strayed -- answers the calls for help with deep empathy, honesty and often with toughness. Strayed joins us to talk about giving advice and her golden rule: trust yourself.

Host: Scott Shafer


  • Cheryl Strayed, author of "Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from 'Dear Sugar'" and the memoir "Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail"
