S20E20: Zelda Sayre and F. Scott Fitzgerald

2023 has been a monster year for breakups, with celebrities (Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas, anyone?), politicians (Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau!), musicians (almost too many to choose: Cardi B and Offset are done; Kacey Musgraves broke up with her longtime boyfriend), all hitting the escape hatch. Breakups are hard, but we are here to say: We’re for it! If your relationship isn’t giving you what you need, there’s no shame in deciding to leave and go live your best life. That’s exactly what Alicia wishes that Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, wife of novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald, had done in their doomed marriage a century ago. This is a reprise of a Season One episode, rewritten and re-recorded.
