Summary

Irma Kurtz speaks to fellow agony aunts around the world. In the first programme she talks to American Cheryl Strayed about the problems she receives in her online column 'Dear Sugar', and why so many men write in for advice from it. Together they compare and contrast perceptions of each other's communities, including the American optimistic outlook and the British stiff upper lip, and also consider examples of the letters received and the guidance given.
