I, I'm calling your host of the good news podcast and I'm Neil, the other host. The good news podcast is your source for good news, fun stories, auditory delight and sonic joy. We're bringing all of this goodness to you from the cards against humanity studios in Chicago, Jen, Bain, and trend. Garitano our co host of the podcast friendship ING. It weekly show all about the relationships with our friends every week, Jen and Trinh answer questions about friendship. They try to advise on the tricky stuff that's making us feel weird, Neil. Can you tell me about your best friend from childhood? Yeah, I had a few best friends. So if you're listening, don't feel like I don't think you're my best friend the the one that sort of jumps to mind Adam brothers who was my neighbor, and we lived in a rural part of Connecticut. So my house was over yonder and his house was over yonder. How far away miles? No, not miles, no. But we had twenty three acres how which it's a big plot of land. His family also had some land and between our houses, there is an abandoned Christmas tree farm, which was a really fun forest to sort of run through and play games, and we played capture the flag like up through high school. We weren't super closed when we were young Ling's, but we were, we were close when we were in high school properly. Yeah. And do you guys think you were close because of proximity? Because you're definitely helped your neighbors? It helped, but we also had very similar interests. We were like nerds, but we were outside nerds. We were sunny nerds sudden buys not pale inside nerds. Yeah, we weren't basement nerds. Well, have a few episodes chatting with our friends from the friendship ING podcast crew. For today's episode, we're going to ask some pretty general questions about friendship. I wonder from both of you if you could tell me what friendship means to each of you. Wow, good one. That's a good question. So it's interesting because I. Friendship can mean a couple of things. It can be a blanket term for everybody. You feel very positively about which I think is actually how most people use it or it can be like, you know, for me, it's the five people that I would take actual bullet wounds for, you know. So I think it's really just your ability to make a supportive community for yourself. Okay, Jen. I don't know if I can say better than that really love that. Friendship to me is like my eighteen my people that are on the bench waiting like sub n. when I when I can't handle my shit, they're like family. Like I, you know that that she phrase that's like, you can't choose your family but can choose your friends. I have chosen my friends as my family. Yeah. So since doing the show because you guys are taking specific time out of your day and week to like really focus on friendship, which doesn't happen that often, what have you learned about friendships since doing the show? Because I think you're thinking about it probably more actively than most people think about it, you know? And I. We think about it all the time to think about. It's just friendship. It's just like the idea of having a guidebook for your emotions and like the idea of being polite and kind is also something we think about a lot, like you said, like there's different ways you think about it can be people you take a bullet four or everybody that you think kinda positively about and like in that can encompass so many people and so much of your reactions. So I think that the number one thing that I've learned over the past three years is people don't know when to end things or how to end things because like we as much as we advocate for making up with your friends and for forgiving your friends and all this stuff. Like there's also point where you have to move on and that's the healthiest thing to do for everybody. Yeah, you you guys are selimo -cially healthy. I hear that in the. It's like their light years ahead of me. You know, it's a part of it is just because we're in the same room together. Totally like it's kind of like do as we say, not as we do. Yeah, we're we're hyper emotional and make a rational decisions all the time. Yeah, yeah, yeah. In that's like why I like the show because we don't advocate. That's why like our own show because we don't have as being experts or anything. I would like to think that I have a pretty good grip on myself emotionally. But like I dunno, like yesterday, I was just from because I was hungry for four hours and I was like, why am I soon bad? You know, like I think everybody has those garbage pitfalls that you will never grow at of. As we said at the top few episodes coming up with friendship, ings, Jen and Tren.
