How to Have a Social Life When You Can’t Leave the House (Ep. 14)

By now, many of us have adapted to a more remote way of living. It has the potential to make working easier, remove commutes, and give us a better work-life balance, for some. On the other hand, it can make for a much lonelier life.

We talk about a few things we’ve been doing to counteract that less-than-desirable feature and maintain a reasonably-functioning, remote social life.
