Amy Alkon's HumanLab -- The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.
On tonight's show, noted sociologist Dr. Eric Klinenberg discusses why remaining unmarried and living alone have increasing appeal and what the problems of living solo tend to be -- and how we might solve them.
We'll touch both on living solo as a younger person (whether romantically single or "living apart together" with a partner), and how we can live alone as we age.
Dr. Klineberg's book is Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone.
