    Many of us have friends right there in our pockets! That’s right, we connect with people via social media, like Twitter, and have all sorts of friends on our phones. Alysa’s pocket friend, Dr. Liz Faber, joins the podcast to chat about the meaning, the joy, the fun (and sometimes the blocks) of having friends in our back pockets.
