The Other Significant Others: How to Reimagine Your Friendships with Rhaina Cohen

What would change if, instead of prioritizing romantic relationships, we made friendships the center of our lives? NPR’s Rhaina Cohen joins Reimagining Love to explore the possibilities embedded within that question. In her new book, Rhaina invites us into the worlds of people who’ve organized their lives around deep friendship and, in doing so, challenge our ideas and assumptions about which relationships should be at the heart of a fulfilling life.
