How are the holidays going to be for you this year? Weird, probably distant, possibly lonely. We’re here to tell you: they don’t have to be that way at all. This week, we talk to Sam Sanders, host of It’s Been a Minute, about the best ways to have meaningful conversations with loved ones. Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen drops in to share some ideas for food gifts that are perfect for our social-distanced world, and Priya Parker, the author of The Art of Gathering, guides us on how to build a sense of connection while we are apart. You can also sign up for her newsletter here.
