In this episode, Dr. Bella DePaulo, social psychologist and author will first draw upon her well recognized book, Singled Out: How Singles Are Stereotyped, Stigmatized, and Ignored, and Still Live Happily Ever After to consider the cultural myths, negative presumptions and even financial discrimination against people who choose to live alone. Considering that more than half of adult Americans are single, Dr. DePaulo’s goal of raising consciousness regarding “Singlism” and awareness of the actual happiness of many singles is an important one. In this episode, Dr. De Paulo will also discuss her fascinating new book, How We Live Now: Redefining Home and Family in the 21st Century, which considers the creative and often non-nuclear ways that people are finding to live. The message of this show is thinking beyond cultural constraints to notice the different ways, spaces and places that people can choose to live happy lives.
