About two months ago, we kicked off a brand new solo podcast series based on a book I co-authored with my dear friend, Amber Durgan, entitled "Friendship Matters: Cultivating Meaningful Connections in an Isolated World". Today we are focusing on chapter 5, a chapter that is all about online friendships. For Amber's perspective on this chapter, head on over to her podcast episode tomorrow!
What I Chat about in Today’s Episode:
~The blessings that online friendships can be; the folly of believing them to be "less-than"
~Technology and the advent of online friendships
~How online friendships can fill a void often felt in our current culture
~The benefits of online friendships and the voids they can fill
~The downsides to online friendships and the voids they cannot fill
