I am joined today by award winning Journalist and author of the new book We Need to Hang out - A Memoir of Making Friends: Billy Baker

With lonliness at epidemic proportions in the West we often think of it as an affliction of the elderly living by themselves but in actual fact (and as Billy discovered) it's also affecting the average middle age man. But what do we do about it and more to the point how to men forge closer stronger bonds with their fellow man?

Billy and I discuss:

  • How his editor set him the initial challenge to write about this topic and his shock discovery that he himself was the very type of person he would be writing about
  • What he found out on his journey as he deconstructed the mechanics of friendship
  • The catastrophic health impacts of having no friends and living a lonely life
  • Why the journey of friendship for men is a lot more simple and organic than you think but contains key elements
