Social Butterfly In Love With A Hermit Crab34:56


In this episode, the Sugars take a question from a young woman who takes great pleasure in socializing. Her fiance, on the other hand, dreads group settings and gets very agitated every time she wants to go to an event together. She wonders what is so unpleasant for him about spending time with her and her friends.

The Sugars are joined by Susan Cain, a self-described introvert, and author of "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking."
