Season two of The Lonely Hour is alive! I’ve joined up with the team at The Listening Booth, home of Memory Motel and What’s Happening Here, and we can’t wait to show you what’s in store; we’re going to discuss expat life, solitary confinement, fetishism, divorce, and much more. The format is changing—most episodes will run under fifteen minutes—and each discussion will be sharper and tighter (we hope!). 

First, though, a kind of intro episode. I realize, looking back at season one, that there was a big question I didn’t answer. It’s a question that I get from people every time I describe the show to them, and it’s an obvious question to want to know the answer to when you’re talking to someone who has created a show called The Lonely Hour

Why am I doing this? What’s my stake in this podcast? Why am I on this journey? 

In this first episode of the show’s second season, I attempt to answer that. Have a listen and let me know if it resonates with you. And after this, I’m going to shut up for a while and let other people tell their stories as the season continues.

Until the next episode, I want to know: What does loneliness mean to YOU? Drop me a voicemail with your definition on Google Voice; dial (415) 663-5901—that’s 41LONELY01. Just make sure to include your name and an email address so I can get back to you, because I might use what you said on a future episode.
