245: Allure of the Mean Friend
What is it about them, our mean friends (or the people we just wish we were friends with)? They treat us badly, they don't call us back, they cancel plans at the last minute, and yet we come back for more. Popular bullies exist in business, politics, everywhere. How do they stay so popular?
A friend recently turned me onto This American Life, I know it's such a predictable 'hipster' thing to be listening to but I figure you can't put a tag on good listening.
