A free-ranging conversation this one, touching on life, parents, childhood, friendship, boundaries, and self-care. It’s not often that two people can meet on a podcast, and walk away as friends. But that’s what happened.

Quote from the conversation

“I get this comment saying that sometimes it’s okay to let go and chill and enjoy and laugh. And why does every conversation have to be a life or death conversation? And I’m asking myself, if it’s not a life or death conversation, what kind of a conversation is it?”

We talk about

  • Coping with our childhood
  • Solitude and loneliness
  • Intense friendships
  • Establishing boundaries
