This show aims, in part, to explore that question. So tell us, what does loneliness mean to you? Leave us a voicemail with your definition at (415) 663-5901—that’s 41LONELY01. You can also record your thoughts as a voice memo and email the MP3 file to email@example.com. (Just make sure to include your name and an email address so we can get back to you, because we may use what you said in a future episode.) Here are some answers so far:
Matt Gross: “There’s a kind of inevitability to loneliness.”
Jamie Feldmar: “Loneliness is a proof point, in some ways, of humanity. It’s proof that you’re capable of human emotion.”
Rachel Mennies: "It is not something that I would say we must avoid."
Stephen Satterfield: "Being alone is something that can be relished, especially in a society that is increasingly connected and together."
Charlotte Druckman: "I think of loneliness as a form of feeling unmoored somehow…without a sense of home."
