Squirrel Dialogues are back after a couple months off. In this episode, Squirrel and I talk about how to sit with feeling really #@$*ing lonely. I know a bit about loneliness. I know somewhat less about how to deal with it in a healthy way. Thank goodness for Squirrel.
I previously spoke to Squirrel about loneliness in Episode 11.
Show notes below the vid.
Sociologist Eric Klinenberg and Ezra Klein discuss loneliness and solidarity during the coronavirus pandemic.
Wonderful Wired article on the modern history of loneliness.

An important correction: Worry Fox mentions “Pappy Van Winkle 21,” but as any good whiskey snob knows, Pappy Van Winkle comes in 15, 20, and 23 year editions. Worry Fox has expensive taste–Pappy Van Winkle is nearly impossible to find and runs upwards of $3,000 a bottle.
