Love is complicated in the digital age. Many of us go online in search of connection, but those interactions often leave us feeling profoundly disconnected.
In this episode, the Sugars take on two questions that explore different ways in which we try to connect online — one from a married woman who finds herself caught up in an illicit relationship on Facebook, the other from a young woman who is obsessed with tracking her boyfriend's ex on Instagram. They are also joined by the writer Rosemary Counter, who shares her story of a "Missed Connection" gone terribly wrong.
