Call Your People!

The Introvert’s Guide to the Good Life, Day 2: Where we ask how we can help ourselves while helping others.

Top on the list for us is to get in touch with friends. We may be in isolation, but that doesn’t mean we can’t hang out with people we care about. Greta checks in (via Skype of course) with Peter Sagal, host of Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!, and Nerdette co-host emeritus Tricia Bobeda, to see how they’re doing.

Peter’s advice for getting through these weird times? 1) Go for a run, and 2) Read Bess Kalb’s Nobody Will Tell You This But Me, out today. (Peter says you get bonus points if you buy it — or any other book, for that matter — from a local independent bookstore.)

And Tricia thinks you should support a local nonprofit, whether that donation is with your time or your dollars.

We also hear from some of you in this episode, and we want to keep that up! Tell us your name, where you’re calling from, and what you’re grateful for. Just record yourself on your phone and then email the audio to us at nerdettepodcast@gmail.com. Keep ‘em coming!
