How can you tell if someone has a crush on you?

How can you make yourself more attractive?

What is consent and why is it important?

How do you know if someone is catfishing you?

We ask the tough and fun questions about dating and relationships with Maggie Arthur, Director of Education at Resilience, a nonprofit organization in Chicago dedicated to the healing and empowerment of sexual assault survivors. 

This episode was produced by Justus, David, Amari, Elvis, Karen, Genaro, Emon, and Edward.
