What is emotional dependency? How do we avoid falling emotionally dependent on another man for our survival, and how do we recover when we cross that line?

It’s the first in a two-part episode on emotional dependency — or “emodep,” as we so lovingly call it. Join Tom and Elliott along with Corey, Marshall, and Bradley for a storytelling roundtable on the emotionally dependent friendships — and ex-friendships — from our stories.
