Episode 72: Our origin story & a mini-book club with friendship novels

We go way back in this episode, to the beginning of our friendship - those fraught 6 weeks at the beginning of college where you may or may not make incorrect judgments about who you do or don't like.

We talk about how our friendship has gotten closer over time, and what has bonded us, even when we don't physically see each other that much.

And then we rely on Meghan's deep knowledge of friendship books, and the project she's doing to think about them as a genre: what counts as a friendship book (or story), and why are we so drawn to them? It's basically a very excellent book club.

Send us your favorite friendship books/TV shows/movies, and we'd also love to hear about your favorite literary friendships, if you're into that.
