On this episode, we welcome journalist Kate Leaver to talk about her new book The Friendship Cure in which she explores the crippling, damaging, life-threatening impact of loneliness and the severe mental health impacts of living a life disconnected from a support network of close contacts. But...there is a cure...learning how to connect with others and curate better friendships. In the interview we talk about loneliness, how to make friends, the difference between male and female friendship, platonic friendships, friends with benefits and lots, lots, more. -- • The Great Courses: www.thegreatcoursesplus.com/smart -- • Ministry of Supply: www.ministryofsupply.com CODE: YANSS -- • MEL Science: www.melscience.com CODE: text DAVID to 64-000
