    Crystal told you all those things but now she is skinny now ! I don’t understand

    Such an amazing show! And I really loved this episode, especially. I’m 18 years old and this show just gives me so much knowledge and inspiration from those great, independent women. Think I’m going to force my 15 year old sister to watch it! So thank you, Amanda :)

    Amanda, I watched this episode right when it came out last year and I never thought in a million years that I’d be hearing Olivia Wilde’s words loud and clear. I’m in the same situation as her right now and I thank you so much from the bottom of my heart because your show is helping people from every age. I cannot express into words the beauty that is your show. Thank you, thank you, thank you for providing a light to every lost sailor.

    I really appreciate everything Sarah said about depression – how it’s often romanticized, but how really painful it actually is. She described depression very eloquently.

    I’m a little frustrated with this episode’s Sarah Silverman interview. In general, I think Amanda is very willing to hear and accept people’s different desires and opinions. But she really seemed to have a single-minded focus on Sarah’s lack of interest in having a child. I think even Sarah may have been a bit frustrated by Amanda’s insistence on the subject. It was as if she wanted Sarah to just “admit” that she really did want a child, as if that were the “correct” answer. Amanda didn’t seem comfortable trusting that Sarah was speaking the truth about herself. Obviously it was something that Amanda couldn’t relate to on a personal level, but I was disappointed that she wasn’t more open-minded, respectful and trusting of Sarah’s opinions and self-reflection about the topic of parenting.
    In general, that interview felt a little off to me. I really appreciated what Sarah had to say but Amanda just didn’t seem to be on the same page – interrupting throughout and often interrupting to finish Sarah’s sentences. Ironically, Sarah had to correct Amanda every time Amanda finished her sentences because Amanda’s instincts about where Sarah was going weren’t quite right (i.e. she’d often finish the sentence incorrectly). I wish Amanda had given Sarah more opportunity to simply speak for herself.
