Are you a good friend? James Avramenko (poet, performer) wants to know. Every week he invites guests from his Facebook friend list to try to answer the question. They discuss their past, what friendship means in the world of social media, how to be a better friend, and whatever else might come up in the conversation. At the end of the episode they unfriend from Facebook and decide how (or sometimes if) they'll stay in touch in the future. Friendless is an engaging and honest look at connection in the digital age. So come along for the ride as James tries to become Friendless.
