Getting out of comfort zone – Marlena & Bikram Part 2 – IIM021
Here we are again.  We will continue with our conversation about family, language, food, and traditions.  There are plenty of hand me downs that Bikram and Marlena are giving to their young son, especially the love for traditions and languages.  It's great that parents encourage their kids to speak multiple languages. Listen to this couple's love story from the beginning in Part 1 It's amazing what love can get you to show up in ways that you never thought possible.  Hear how Bikram asked for Marlena's hand in marriage in Polish. Mentions in the episode Gurbani (ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ) - the Gurbani is the Treasure of Wisdom (Giaan-Guroo) - Sikhs refer to compositions of the Sikh Gurus and other Writers of Guru Granth Sahib. In general, hymns in the central text of the Sikhs, the Guru Granth Sahib, are called Gurbani. Hindi (हिन्दी,) - national language of India Punjabi (ਪੰਜਾਬੀ) - spoken in Punjab region of India Polish (język polski, polszczyzna) - West Slavic language spoken mainly in Poland Neil Gaiman quote - Have you even been in love?  Horrible, isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.

We've talked about best friends before - it's a tricky thing when your bestie starts dating and even trickier when they start seeing someone you know and dislike! We've got a triangle where one listener's best friend is dating someone who was a douchebag in high school. Can people change? Should he call disaster before it strikes? Or hold his tongue? Prem & Rogue are surprisingly on the same page about what to do (but not why). What do you think? In the sex segment, we've got a question from an avid listener who's tried all our other tricks but is still having trouble in the bedroom: her partner isn't depressed, isn't on substances, hasn't had a setback at work, but has failed to 'perform' three times in a row. The siblings jump into problem solving intimacy coach mode and suggest some stuff she could try. Some of it involves being naked. Some of it involves a slap. (Really, Prem? Really?). Tune in and hey, send us your questions, too!
