This week, we discuss the limits of our guarantees and Brian is pretty sure that murder is the answer to…something.

My boss is a terrible manager. Not only is she not personable, but she’s holding up promotions for half the office. People are talking about quitting. I love my job, but I’m up for promotion and a raise in a few months, and I’m worried she’ll hold me up to. What do I do?

The Eight Coins’ Tattoo Tarot by Lana Zellner gets the Amateur Tarot Pod treatment this week. This is the Tarot as if it were old-school tattoo art…on some of the cards. The quality of the images on this deck (while admittedly better than anything your hosts could ever do) is up and down. ⭐️⭐️/5

This Week’s 3-Card Tarot Reading

The Past: FOUR OF SWORDS | The Present: QUEEN OF CUPS | The Future: FIVE OF SWORDS

Our advice: You’ve been observing this happening for a while now (Four of Swords). There’s someone in the office who is qualified and would be able to do the job well (Queen of Cups). It’s time to politick for the job of your manager. You’ve been considering it for a while, and it’s time to worry about yourself and use your wiles to usurp her position (Five of Swords).
