Finally the advice we've all been looking for!

I dived into this having never heard of Uncle Dysfunctional and after listening to it I am now a huge fan! His advice is at times ridiculous and at others brutally honest, but always hilarious! This paired with the voice and comedic timing of Alexander Armstrong is brought to life perfectly. Each letter of advice is self-contained but they are smartly assembled together to add more wit, a slight narrative, and even a thought provoking ending. All in all a lighthearted good laugh!
