Join Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, acclaimed writers and hosts of the hit podcast Call Your Girlfriend, as they discuss the complex power of female friendship in America and their New York Times-bestselling book, Big Friendship: How We Keep Each Other Close.

Characteristically hilarious and wise, Sow and Friedman’s chronicle of their own relationship serves as springboard for a broader conversation about the nature of friendship in 2020—what is required, for better and for worse, to keep each other close over geographic distance, economic and professional disparity, and diverging pathways through adulthood. Hear them discuss the lessons they’ve learned about their own relationship while writing the book—and the changing nature of friendship for a new generation of women—along with candid stories about the making of Call Your Girlfriend, and much more.
