Episode 111: Parasocial Drinkers w/ Shannon Strucci


We welcome Shannon Strucci, YouTube's own, on the show to talk about her work, Fake Friends, on parasocial relationships, the way they inform the strange connections we have to perfect strangers, and how gaming plays into this odd modern problem! Shannon is an absolute must listen.
