According to a survey of 2000 adults, the average American hasn’t made a new friend in the last five years, and yet, 45% of people would go out of their way to make a new friend if they knew how. Former fellow and friendship expert Dr. Marisa Franco joins Dr. Stephanie Gage for a candid conversation about her NYT best-selling book “Platonic: How the Science of Attachment Can Help You Make and Keep Friends.” Their conversation explores the topics of loneliness, the importance of friendship, and how to make lasting friendships.
