Every Friday we challenge our guests with a dilemma from your ‘too hard basket’ – to discuss, unravel, and maybe even help solve for you. Send your dilemma via email on the Life Matters web page or Facebook, ABC Radio National, or send us a voice memo. Keep it to 150 words and you can always use another name.
