When was the last time you got a hug? 12

Zoom can put us in a virtual room with someone, but it can never replace the touch and feel of another human being. Michelle Drouin is a psychology professor at Purdue University-Fort Wayne and senior research scientist at the Parkview Mirro Center for Research and Innovation. She joins guest host Courtney Collins to discuss why we’re increasingly isolated physically, emotionally and intellectually from one another and how we might reestablish that connection. Her book is “Out of Touch: How to Survive an Intimacy Famine.”
