Lonely In KC

Nov 26, 2012

Ever wonder what it would be like to live in Kansas City and not know anyone?

Loneliness is a feeling that we have all experienced at one time or another in our lives, but for some it can be a chronic condition that affects their physical and emotional well-being.

On Tuesday's Central Standard, we'll talk to resident psychologist Dr. Bruce Liese, and sociologist Monica Kirkpatrick Johnson from Washington State University, about the causes and treatment of this strictly human condition.

We'll also be joined by Matt Pearce, author of the recent Pitch article Can't A Guy Just Make Some Friends Around Here?  Maybe. that examined what it's like living anonymously in Kansas City.

And as always, we want to hear from you.   Call 816-235-2888 during the show, or email centralstandard@kcur.org.
