On this week's episode: Elizabeth, Jamilah, and Zak help a parent who is sick of their generous neighbors constantly sending over hand-me-down toys. The letter writer is already running out of space in their house. Is it OK to simply refuse? Can they donate the toys? Would tossing the toys crush the neighbors' generous spirit? Then they answer a question from a dad whose daughter needs surgery. How can he explain the procedure without frightening her? On Slate Plus, the hosts talk about how this time of year forces families to really figure out how they're celebrating the holidays and, in turn, how religion operates within their family. Slate Plus members get a bonus segment on MADAF each week, and no ads.

Fascynacja inną, nieznaną nam kulturą ma swoje etapy. Najczęściej nie docieramy do tej fazy, w której jesteśmy w stanie wejść w interesujący nas świat głęboko - jako jego pełnoprawni uczestnicy. Wtedy dopiero możemy na własnej skórze odczuć zarówno wady, jak i zalety obiektu naszej fascynacji. To czas próby. Jedni robią wtedy krok wstecz i bańka pęka. Inni idą dalej, podejmując tym samym życiową decyzję. Tak zrobiła Katarzyna "Jamilah" Ławrynowicz, która od dekady mieszka w Marrakeszu. (Początek rozmowy: 12'02")
