Science for the People

It’s 2020 and times are tough. Maybe some of us are learn­ing about social dis­tanc­ing the hard way. Maybe we just are all a lit­tle anx­ious. No mat­ter what, we could prob­a­bly use a friend. But what is a friend, exact­ly? And why do we need them so much? This week host Bethany Brook­shire speaks with Lydia Den­worth, author of the new book Friend­ship: The Evo­lu­tion, Biol­o­gy, and Extra­or­di­nary Pow­er of Life’s Fun­da­men­tal Bond”. This episode is host­ed by Bethany Brook­shire, sci­ence writer from Sci­ence News.
