Amy Alkon's HumanLab -- The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.

Tonight’s show is on why friendships matter more now than ever, the ways friends can make us better people, and how to have more satisfying friendships and ditch the dark ones.

My guest is Carlin Flora, the fantastic editor I worked with at Psychology Today, and her book is Friendfluence: The Surprising Ways Friends Make Us Who We Are.

Flora is one of the few non-scientists to appear on my show, but her book is research-driven and I found her to be very solid on science, and this should be a compelling show. 

Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sun from 7-7:30 pm PT and 10-10:30 pm ET, here at or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.

Please support the show by ordering my "science-help" book, "Unf*ckology: A Field Guide to Living with Guts and Confidence."
