Friendless

Friendless

How to be a better friend by losing every friend you've ever made! James Avramenko has a lot of friends, at least on Facebook. Too many maybe. So he's decided to do something about it. Every week James has a friend on the show to talk relationships, social media, art, memories, or whatever else might come up. At the end of the interview they unfriend off Facebook and decide (or sometimes if) they'll stay in touch in the future. Friendless is a fun, irreverent exploration of what it means to be a friend in an age of social distancing and digital alienation. So listen along while James tries to become Friendless!
