On Episode 23 of You, Me, Empathy, I sit down with Shannon Strucci to explore Parasocial Relationships, non-reciprocal relationships we create with fictional characters or famous people, and their impact on mental health.

We also chat about loneliness, being an introvert online, video games, manga, anime, the lack of empathy and danger in binary thinking, making friends online, YouTube culture, and the boundaries we need to create to embrace self care and foster joyful, healthy mental wellness. 

Thanks for listening, and thanks for empathizing with us!
